Description

Veteran journalist Joe Nocera’s neighbor in the Hamptons was a therapist named Ike. Ike counted celebrities and Manhattan elites as his patients.

From Wondery, the company behind Dirty John and Dr. Death, and Bloomberg, “The Shrink Next Door” is a story about power, control and turning to the wrong person for help for three decades. Written and hosted by Joe Nocera, a columnist for Bloomberg , “The Shrink Next Door” premieres on May 21st.

This is a classical display of a platonic narcissist and codependent relationship. Isolation, gas lighting. and exploitation. Great podcast 👍

I sincerely hope there is a follow up episode, one that: details the disinigration of Ike's "therapy" practice and then lists the serious consequences for his unethical actions...I won't hold my breath (Hopefully his clients/patients listen to this podcast and wise up to who they are going to for support and giving their money to. It is staggering that this guy is still providing this type of service)

Despite the fact that Ike crossed multiple boundaries and was unethical in many ways (his bathing suit photos with patients alone) was there any time after he claims to have worked only in a business consultation capacity that he prescribed any medication to Marty? if so, this should be a slam dunk to lose any licensure he has and all of the above plus this fact would be a major and documented conflict of interest.

his manipulation of Marty puts me in the same place of mind as the victims of R Kelly. How did you let him go so far for so long?! It's amazing how people can be so far under the spell of another human!

thoroughly enjoying the podcast, but agree there are 2 many ad breaks that really do spoil the enjoyment of the podcast. I'd prefer ads at start and end with one ad slot in the middle rather than every 5 minutes, when the podcast isn't long anyway.

Has anyone ever checked to see if he was even a real therapist?
