Too many advertisements per usual
Podcast was good. It was entertaining and informative. My gripe is the ads - there’s so many of them and it’s disruptive. I understand that’s how they make money and I’m okay with some ads, but this podcast seemed to have much more than any other I’ve listened to, especially considering how short each episode is.
I completely want podcasters to be able to make money off of their efforts. However the ads were excessive as others were saying. But what’s worse is the excessive rehashing of what’s already happened before getting back to the point where the last episode left off. Podcasters expect binging to occur, no?
Don’t bother building tension with a nice sound design and gripping storytelling details if you’re going to cut to an ad about a home security system. I have never been so annoyed at a podcast treating such an important, dramatic topic with such disregard for its audience.
This is deadpan no goofing wondery podcast on point. It can be pretty cheesy / tone deaf at times, but it’s great quality and the story is compelling. It’s so clear they work hard on their podcasts. Worth a listen!

Having attended such a seminar in Sedona years ago, I could relate. The description of Raye and how he was dressed and how suave he was-reminded me of Dick Sutphen. His seminar was fascinating but nothing like what Raye’s people went through. As a seeker myself I just want to warn people that the only person you end up helping is the guru who gets to live an extravagant life style on your dime. Buy a book.

I love it when it’s a crime story that’s also no profanity. Great story perfect amount of content. Keep these short podcast coming I love them

It’s great! It’s hard not to listen to a lot but the adds
Good start, drawn out, bad, poorly timed commercial breaks. Not their best work for what could have been a great three episode interesting topic.
I enjoyed the podcast and couldn’t wait for the next episode. Thanks for exposing “the dark side of the self-help industry”.
It’s hard to get into the storyline when it’s interrupted every few minutes for ads
This is a great podcast but the most ads I’ve ever heard on a podcast, it’s way to distracting
Chuck Norris once completed 40 hours of work in 4 hours, including 15 minutes for a coffee break.
Shame because the actual content is pretty good but the ads really do detract from the flow of the podcast. GB
While this is undoubtedly a fascinating story, the way Wondery has designed this podcast (and others) makes it an uncomfortable listen - the jarring theme tune (seriously - what’s with the cringe badass hype vibe) and ads throughout pitch the suffering of others as juicy entertainment. If Wondery handled these stories with less tabloid sensationalism and more care I would feel more comfortable. GB
A gripping and engaging podcast which is, unfortunately, entirely ruined by the sheer volume of adverts (as many others have said). The story is fascinating and well written; however, I am left feeling disappointed as the primary detail I can recall of the listening experience is the benefit a home security system could bring me. Do give it a go if you: a) would like a slightly discounted home security system; or b) you don’t mind fast forwarding the same adverts every 5 minutes. GB
All that really belongs to us is time; even he who has nothing else has that.
