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.

Great Listen

This is a really interested case and a really well made podcast. But please don't use the background noise that sounds like a phone vibrating in any future podcasts or updates on this case. It's driving me crazy because I've checked to see who's calling me a million times.

Stop spamming me

I don’t want my more of your junk being sent to me. Stop sending me trailers completely unrelated to this show. I will unsubscribe from anything to do with this parent company. I believe CBS. You lost me forever with this repeated and offensive spam about shows to do with Jeffrey Epstein. Offensive. Triggering and i don’t want it. My kid can see my podcasts and now we have to have the Epstein chat. Great.

Very Interesting

I am getting addicted to this case. I don’t usually follow business things. But this story is sucking me in. Hard to believe things got this far.

Great story !

Very well done podcast. Her intentions were good in the beginning but I think the win at all cost mentality truly overtook her good intentions to the point of lying. Innocent people got hurt. Kuddos to the scientists and employees like Tyler who stood up to money and power. I couldn’t have done that in my post grad school years. Impressive! I do truly believe she thinks she did nothing wrong to this day. I wonder what her future holds? A brilliant mind gone wrong.

Give it a chance

I had my doubts at first. I thought it was going to be kind of monotonous but I was wrong. It’s so incredibly interesting and very well done; balancing factual and investigate journalism. But my only problem is when will the new episodes be released?

A very good piece. I still wonder what her real motives were. Would the device have been successful if she had stayed true to the mission ?
