The Shrink Next Door

The Shrink Next Door

Published by: Wondery

17 Episodes | First Released: May 6 '19 | 🇺🇸
Veteran journalist Joe Nocera had a Hamptons neighbor: Ike, therapist to celebrities and Manhattan’s elite. He had star-studded parties at the vacation house. But one summer, Joe came back to discover that Ike was gone, and the summer house next door had never belonged to Ike in the first place. It was Marty’s, a therapy patient of Ike’s who had finally broken free from Ike’s psychological domination. THE SHRINK NEXT DOOR is the story of one therapist’s psychological manipulation as he crossed lines and defrauded his patients — and he’s still out there. In partnership with Bloomberg.

The Shrink Next Door is hosted by: Joe Nocera

Unbelievable manipulation by a bad psychiatrist!!

Whether you have been in therapy or not, this is a FASCINATING, jaw dropping story told in great journalistic documentary style. Kudos to Joe for exposing this bastard shrink! My heart goes out to Marty for the harm he suffered and I applaud Marty’s courage in sharing his story with the world! So glad Marty was scrupulous in keeping the documentation that allowed him to file a case with the licensing board. Let’s hope that hearing heads toward the sanction I am hoping for—loss of Ike’s medical license!!!

too long but still good

interesting, but could’ve been 3 succinct episodes. i think the story is definitely worth reporting on but i think it’s also clear the reporter was too personally invested in the story and thus failed to edit properly.

The nerve...

Brilliantly told stories from the host and the actual "victims". How this dreadful person can live with himself, he is vile. I hope Karma catches up to him real soon..

Worth a Listen

Interesting story. However, my question is how a guy who was so easily manipulated, could have built his company and all the wealth that was stolen from him in the first place?!?! You just want to shake the guy and go “Wake up you NIMBY”!!!!!!!You’re getting robbed blind”!!! Maybe their should be a Darwin Award for financial morons?

Good listen

Really good listen, and scary to think someone who Marty clearly trusted so much can do such a horrid thing to him. Did begin to think it was brought on himself though, 30 years i mean come on?!?!?! Worth a listen though for sure

Truly left me Wondering

I was baffled by the extended duration of the financial and indeed psychological abuse endured by Marty. His loneliness and isolation certainly were contributing factors to his vulnerability. But I am still wondering how on earth this abuse went on for as long as it did! As for the Dr Death podcast, I believe there is a system failure to protect the public and patient from such dangerous Drs. I was very disappointed to hear Ike is still practicing psychiatry. Definitely recommend listening to gain awareness and understanding of the signs of financial, psychological and emotional abuse to protect yourself and your loved ones.Thank you to the host and all the production team involved.

Shocked by this whole story!

I listened to this whole podcast in one sitting and it was incredibly well done. I felt so awful for many of these patients, or victims, because they are being preyed upon in such a vulnerable state to begin with. But their families were also part of this whole drama. Really worth the listen!

God og interessant

Om hvordan den menneskelige psyke kan manipuleres, om hvor svært livet kan være, når man er alene. Om tilgivelse.

Stupid rich people

If you like stories about idiotic, boring rich people, have fun. This entire podcast was probably funded by the rich guy that got screwed over. Pathetic.
