Howard Scott Warshaw returns to the program to talk a very serious topic: stalkers. Whether in the form of jilted exes who can't let go, deluded strangers who imagine a rapport, or vengeful online trolls, obsessed individuals can create havoc for a person's personal and professional lives, and can be highly unstable and dangerous. Howard discusses the psychological roots of stalking behavior, why certain people become objects of fixation, and what you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones if confronted with such a person.
