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.

Can’t wait!

Everything about this story from the business parts of this story to the scandal parts of this story. I look everyday to check when season 2 will come out. Thank you JV and the whole dropout team for this amazing well executed podcast!

This podcast was very interesting.

I’ll be surprised if she gets any prison time. This country tends to protect privileged white women at all costs. There were so many red flags about this company it was ridiculous. Can’t really say I feel bad for anyone on the board, or it’s investors.

The Dropout

How long can the simple point of investigation be ignored that would expose the sincerity of Elizabeth or her outright fraudulence? Why is no one having the “blood test box” workings taken apart and explain how it was expected to work? Is it even scientifically and technically plausible? There lies proof of true invention or outright fraud.
