About the podcast

Money. Romance. Tragedy. Deception. The story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. How did the world's youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye? How did the woman once heralded as "the next Steve Jobs" find herself facing criminal charges -- to which she pleaded not guilty -- and up to 20 years in jail? How did her technology, meant to revolutionize healthcare, potentially put millions of patients at risk? And how did so many smart people get it so wrong along the way? ABC News chief business, technology and economics correspondent Rebecca Jarvis, along with producers Taylor Dunn and Victoria Thompson, take listeners on a journey that includes a three-year-long investigation. You'll hear exclusive interviews with former employees, investors, and patients, and for the first-time, the never-before-aired deposition testimony of Elizabeth Holmes, and those at the center of this story.

Great podcast if you haven’t read bad blood yet (this is a better book than the podcast though IMO). Pretty good and supplementary if you have read it too.

I have only listened to the first episode so far, which is really exciting. I already read the book bad blood, but this story is fascinating so really interesting to hear from another angle. @BeatrizMarañonStraarup @MortenVeithSchroeder @FrederickHollesen

If you haven’t read Bad Blood I think you’ll find this podcast fascinating and very exciting - possibly a 10! If you have read the book it doesn’t add much new information but interesting to hear the story from first hand interviews with people involved!
