Overall, I loved this podcast. I learned of it AFTER the hoax was uncovered. In a lot of ways, I found the fact that the main interviewee lied speaks to an interesting aspect of his psychopathology. The only thing that I absolutely cringed about was when the interviewer had the victim speak over the phone to her captor. That was incredibly dangerous and possibly traumatic. I could not believe that risk being taken for the sake of a good story. In the end, the interviewer claims the victim found the experience empowering. That can be the case, absolutely.

Either way, that could have been incredibly harmful. A story should never trump the well being of this victim.
