Great story

I was addicted to this story. Great work John. I wish Elizabeth would have been convicted for the trauma and emotional support the patients went through. It was all about the investors.

So good!

I’ve been obsessed with this case and have watched and listened to everything I can find on it. I loved hearing from Carreyrou himself. So much that I had not heard before!
