Please fix the audio in ep 5 This Week in Court #3

I’m really enjoying listening to this, after having read the book and watched the documentary, but please fix the audio in Episode 5: This Week in Court #3–there’s no sound at all…

BEST REPORTING OUT THERE

This podcast is fantastic! The books was amazing and I knew this podcast would be one for the records. So glad JC decided to do this. But if you haven’t read the book “Bad Blood”, go now! Well done JC! Keep up the great work!!

What happened?

The first few episodes of this podcast were excellent, but it has gone dark for 3 weeks other than the decidedly-lackluster bonus episodes. John Carreyrou has built up a lot of trust and respect with his superb reporting on Theranos. But I feel like I’m getting a bit ripped-off paying monthly for a podcast that will have only one full-length episode in the past 4 weeks. C’mon John, don’t squander our trust and admiration. As for the Monday episodes, I’m sure Emily is a fine print reporter but her courtroom analysis on the podcast seems more like the casual observations of a non-expert. I’m not sure a run-in at Starbucks and conjecture at Elizabeth’s emotional state deserve to be reported under the banner of Bad Blood.
