A conversation with a killer and the motive for murder is revealed.
When we face challenges in life, we seek answers from people we believe can help us. When tragedy strikes an exclusive retreat with a self-help superstar, many people are left to wonder: how far is too far? James Arthur Ray was an Oprah-endorsed self-help teacher who achieved fame, fortune, and influence. But friends and family members of his followers questioned his unorthodox methods, and tried to stop him. From Wondery, the makers of “Dirty John,” “Dr. Death,” and “The Shrink Next Door,” comes a story about the dark side of enlightenment. Hosted by journalist Matt Stroud.Listen today at wondery.fm/thingaboutpam_guru

I don't think in the end you named the Motive for his murders Yes, it was arguably pride, but the real motive was misogyny! And that is applicable to all three of his murders

I think clouser here mostly refers to not look for justice anymore and mourning just beginning after justice have been served.

Great podcast, soothing voice. Well done US for keeping death penalty, this guy deserves a long time on death row and then to be executed.

Unfortunately this series could have been done in half the number of episodes. A lot of filler to get through.

Most excellent show. Great narration & voice. Intriguing case. Sadly, Women/Girls are still chattle in some cultures of the world. Famous Texas case where a father kills his two daughters rather than have them become any more American iced. The sisters were born American!! Crazy! Anyway. Sincerely, a devoted listener.

This is an interesting case and I like the podcast. But I also wish they would have dropped it all at once since each episode is less than a half hour long.

Waiting a week for a small piece isn't cool. I wish they had just waited and put a bunch out at once. Although I do enjoy the podcast.

I agree with Josh that the word "closure" is misused in reference to the families of murder victims. What exactly gets closed? Every time I hear that word used in this context it really irritates and annoys me.

I really enjoyed the first episode. This one not as much. I hope episode 3 I'd a bit more interesting.
