The Berlin Patient

By Joel White

In 2010 Joel and his girlfriend moved from Sydney to Berlin. After a month she left him and flew back home to be with a tattooed barista who was in a band. To try and win her back, he sent her over 90 minutes of audio recordings that contained horrendous anecdotes, Hollywood cliches and he even passed off Pearl Jam lyrics as his own. He recently found these files and instead of hiding the shame, he sat down with some friends, comedians and a therapist to analyse the lies, depression and desperation that a break up brings.

Too scared to let us listen without qualification

You hear about 2 sentences of his audio postcards per podcast. The rest is commentary. It must be hard to let people hear you at your worst and make their own judgement without you guiding that and trying to remind us that you know better now and that that's not you (now) but the show would be better for it. This is his attempt to recontextualise his personal history as evidently he can't rewrite/record it.

More of the good stuff

I downloaded this podcast after Leigh Sales gave it a plug in Chat10 Looks3. The concept is great and sporadically hilarious, but for the most part it feels like he is inflicting the same unnecessarily long-winded, self-indulgent monologues as he did on his poor ex-girlfriend. The difference being, she didn't ask for it. Tighten up the back story and give us more of the actual schadenfreude.


Great journey of a breakup and it's nice to experience honesty for once, especially coming from a man. I loved the therapist episode and also the French novalists take on love, would listen to those both again.
