#40 - Ethics of The Shrink Next Door (Podcast)
When Journalist, Joe Nocera, realized that his Hampton's neighbor, Ike, had suddenly moved, he knew things were off. However, there was no way he could prepare himself for the story he was about to uncover. The man that Joe thought was his neighbor's maintenance man, Marty, actually turned out to be the owner of the property, and Ike, had been Marty's Psychiatrist for 30 years. This week we look into the ethical violations that Ike had to betray to find himself in almost complete control of Marty's life -- We look at this through Ryan's eyes, as a Therapist, and wonder where he thinks this relationship got off the rails. We also look at this through Mike perspective as a patient, who seems to understand Marty's gullibility. Up Top: We cover a news story. Netflix has just announced that they have edited the suicide scene from season 1 of 13 Reasons Why. Mike thinks it's a marketing scheme, and a bit late. Ryan says, it can't be too late.
