Mike and Ryan offer opinions on the glorification of serial killers in pop culture. They look at psychopathy and sociopathy through the lens of Netlfix's Mindhunter and strive to breakdown the how and why for people with Anti Social Personality Disorder. Mike and Ryan end up in a debate about whether or not, Holden Ford, is a sociopath.
Synopsis: Today, we are covering The Netflix series, Mindhunter. Based on the real-life work of former FBI Agent John Douglas. Starring Jonathan Groff as Holden Ford, Holt McCallany as Bill Tench and Anna Torv as Dr Wendy Carr
Set in the late 1970’s, Holden Ford, a hostage negotiator for the FBI, is put out to pasture and assigned the Job of teaching Cops around the country about criminal motive, with agent Bill Tench. While traveling the country, Ford’s curiosity surrounding the psyche of what he calls “sequence killers”, gets the best of him. Under the nose of his superiors, Ford starts interviewing, Ed Kemper, a man who is serving a life sentence for indescribable crimes.
Ford believes he is learning valuable information that could help the FBI solve similar crimes and save lives. His partner Bill begrudgingly goes along with him, but eventually sees the same importance in the interviews as Ford does. As the FBI embraces the program, Ford, Tench and their outside consultant, Dr Wendy Carr are able to interview several of these “Sequence Killers”, and build the foundation for modern serial-killer profiling.
