True Crime Psychology and Personality, hosted by Dr. Todd Grande, dives deep into the pathology behind some of the most horrendous crimes and those who commit them. We discuss topics like narcissism, psychopathy, sociopathy, and antisocial personality disorder from a scientifically informed perspective. What is a narcissist? What makes a person develop narcissistic personality disorder or become a psychopath? How do you spot a sociopath? What signs can you look for to protect yourself from these dangerous personalities? It's not just about the stories, it's about the science and psychology behind them.
