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.

Omg. I'm hooked

Wow. I NEVER thought I'd be into series podcasts. I clicked on this not knowing what to expect and was going to change it after about 5 minutes. However I am so hooked. Never thought I'd be so invested in a podcast. Highly recommend.

Just listen to this podcast

I think the title of this comment says it all. Don’t look too far into the comments or other articles surrounding Elizabeth Holmes if you don’t know too much about this story to begin with. Listen to the podcast. Everything will be explained, and you will be able to make your own conclusions by the end of the podcast. It’s a great listen and also very refreshing to hear a woman’s voice as the host; Rebecca does an incredible job showcasing the information (while sometimes slightly, but justifiably, biased) and keeps you paying attention until the very end. Listen away!
