Great podcast but it cuts off awkwardly mid-sentence near the end at almost all the episodes.

A shining example of investigative journalism. Elizabeth Holmes’ story serves as a chilling cautionary tale of systemic deception and unscrupulous business practices. Keep up the brilliant work!

This was an amazing podcast that had me hooked from the very start. Elizabeth Holmes is guilty and there is no doubt about that. The docu-drama storytelling quality of the podcast was well paced and unfolded nicely, covering both the good (childhood) and not so good sides of Holmes. It's clear even if her initial draw to the idea was to develop a unique product, she very quickly manipulated from the get-go as a means to an not so great end. Yes, she has established she is a con, and deserves to be imprisoned for putting people's lives at risk, however, this podcast leaves me on the edge of my seat wondering how she plans to talk her way out of that. It presents her as a con artist like no other, you almost have to wonder it she will actually get away with it. Society is at a point where these type of behaviors aren't always evenly punished across the classes.

This podcast is definitely worth a listen. First episode had me hooked immediately. It’s put together well and very in-depth. My friend overall opinion/take on this is that Elizabeth definitely made some mistakes along the way and should be punished for those mistakes... but I also believe she has good ambition and could potentially push through one day learning from her mistakes.

If this is the standard of US journalism, it’s no wonder the scam sucked in the credulous and greedy. Why doesn’t it occur to the podcast to ask why the scam operated in the top ranks of society? Why isn’t, for example, Stanford utterly humiliated by its cupidity, hyperbole and brainless enabling of criminality?

Unbelievable how she got away with it! A fascinating podcast, I loved it. Satisfying to know she went down for it after hearing the details. Amazing how many people were part of it

Professional coverage of a story of a fraud who conned people out of millions and put at risk the lives of thousands. How did Elizabeth Holmes keep the con going so long? GB

I thought I knew the Theranos story well but this was still fascinating - not least for the sense it conveyed that it was bogus from the very beginning. Phyllis Gardner’s assessment of Holmes’ insights, based on no more than a couple of terms as an undergraduate, seems damning. But over the years, so many people clearly saw the empress had no clothes but kept taking the pay checks. Classy response from George Shultz, btw. GB

It is the quality of our work which will please God, not the quantity.
