How did I not know about this?!! This was an absolutely insane story but I was left with so many more questions.... this woman was obviously connected from the beginning (which the documentary left out that her father was VP of Enron lol!) but what really fascinated me were the BIG political names behind her (e.g., war criminal Henry Kissinger!!). Did they not have a vetting process before pouring all this money into her? They just trusted her without checking third parties? Yup, these are the people who have major influence and/or role in US politics and, as seen in this doc, are easily fooled - what a joke! Joe Biden even made a cameo! 😂🤦🏼‍♀️ Giving this a 7 because the documentary was too dramatized and could have done without the animations.

Have not read the book, but I thought this was really good - loved the behavioral economics angle to the story

The book bad blood is SO good, so I had high expectations for this. But it wasn’t a great documentary, they were really lacking visuals. Still interesting to watch, but would say definitely read the book first...

Great documentary about the absolutely defunct Theranos! The book ‘Bad Blood’ is better but still worthwhile watching. If not for anything else, at least just to hear Holmes’ unrealistic deep voice!

She’s a very strange individual. Really worth a watch.
