The best at podcast about Elizabeth Holmes…

…unless you need a comedic version (hilariously recounted and judgment passed by two Aussie girls on a podcast called “CANCELLED”), Carryou’s “Bad Blood” is unequivocally the best podcast - throughly researched, most balanced - narrative about Ms Holmes and her start up “Theranos”.
5 stars!

Informative and easy listening

It sounds like it is well researched and is therefore informative. Carreyrou speaks calmly and clearly, which makes it easy to listen to. We need more journalists like Carreyrou.
