The casual greed, superficial ethics, and eagerness to join a tech billionaire personality cult displayed by virtually every interviewee is profoundly disturbing. Everyone involved wanted so badly to be attached to wealth that they willingly blinded themselves to the unending parade of red flags. Holmes could not have produced this level of fraud without an ocean of enablers.

in the business world in the US, the better bullshitter you are (in a lot of industries), the more people respect you and it's really horrible. info like this helps change that.

Fantastic podcast! I've been obsessed with this story for a long time since I'm an entrepreneur doing something similar (riquim.com). I have been pursuing funding for FDA validation before doing anything else. It's frustrating people like this ruin it for investors to take chances down the line for actual scientists with no rich relatives/friends. It sets the whole industry back, keeping labs expensive and point-of-care testing a pipe dream. After this podcast I'm getting Carreyrou's Bad Blood - can't get enough!

I'm a lab tech, and I cannot get over how they stayed in business so long??!?! I'd demand to see validation data, plans, etc....and have the FDA on speed dial! Great pod cast!

mary trujillo I am shocked by Walgreens lack of due diligence. They were no doubt also blinded by greed. It's also amazing how these VC just give money without any solid proof of product and effectiveness.
