Heather Morrison

A story of rich privileged people being controlled and ripped off by a rich privileged sociopath. Who am I supposed to root for?

Heather Morrison Being wealthy does not preclude a person from having human frailties such as Marty had. But he was self aware enough to realize that he needed professional help. Unfortunately, the person he sought help from was a true psychopath, who broke every tenet of his professional code of ethics. That this is a true story is all the more tragic but because Marty was weak does not make him fair fodder for a psychopath, especially one in a position of power over him as in a doctor/patient relationship. Never root for a psychopath/sociopath. They are dangerous members of society who will lie, cheat, steal, manipulate and even murder without conscience toward those they harm. They never should be the recipient of your encouragement.

Heather Morrison it's not a superhero movie, you don't have to root for anyone.

This was a bizarre and odd story, and I loved it. People can be so strange. Marty was very insecure, almost a jellyfish. He was misguided and childish, regardless of his intelligence and wealth. He was easily manipulated by a professional con like Ike, who got away with manipulating weak people as a medical professional. It's scary to know that there are a lot of people like Marty and Ike in the world. Makes me stop to thank God that I am not like either of these people, not even remotely. Thanks for a great podcast.
