Description

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.

Customer Reviews

Fascinating Podcast

Rebecca Jarvis does an excellent job! This story is fascinating. I am not sure why, but I am shocked about the lack of compassion Elizabeth Holmes had for patients’ health. I strongly recommend reading Bad Blood by John Carreyrou. The book goes into more depth and does an amazing job of telling Theranos’ story.

Cautionary tale

An excellent storytelling of an amazing story. These events are concerning for how we are all wanting to believe the unbelievable.

Great listen

Fascinating 360-degree view of this very weird episode in tech business history.
