There is something very odd about Marty's account of things. This whole thing is hard to believe, but that just speaks to how terribly Ike exploited this clearly vulnerable person. I just really find Marty's narration a little lacking in insight and reflection... I wonder how he excelled in business and generally in his professional life if he were so eager for any supportive word from virtually anyone. But it's only episode 3!

I really enjoyed this podcast! I'm glad Marty was able to recover and reconnect with his family. I felt so bad for the women whose mother died 😔

Seriously don't understand how people can just hand over their entire life, money and free will to any one person, manipulative or not, sociapath or sane but then lm not walking in their shoes to understand it. How is it possible that such intelligent people can't see manipulative control being slapped in their face? It's total evilness and insecurity totally playing its part odveriously.

in one way it's hard to believe this was possible. but on the other hand it's easy see how someone's free will is eroded bit by bit. Great Story

This is admonishing. How can someone allow a "therapist" to control them in such a way?

Ike is at least a high level narcissist . Playing with other peoples lives for greed without caring a bit. Maybe even psychopathic.
