Description

With Theranos technology now being used by real customers, many employees are at a breaking point. They are horrified by what they believe to be widespread deception and dangerous practices, but Theranos has implemented increasingly extreme measures to stop them from speaking out. As the threat of litigation lingers, one brave and unlikely whistleblower, with close ties to Elizabeth Holmes and the board of directors, emerges.

I love the idea of George Schultz's hubris being identified by his grandson Tyler. Just shows how eager people were to believe the chimera, the cloud. The smoke and the mirrors. I'm thrilled that Rupert lost so much. I guess though that that signals an increase in his over-priced Foxtel. Well told. Brilliant interface with Elizabeth's voice saying 'I don't know'.

Alisha♊ eh. idk. R Kelly? OJ Simpson?....jussie Smollett? ect. we can go back and forth forever on these kinds of circular racialized arguments. the problem is her behavior... not her race. I think the main reason she was able to get away with all this mess (tho thankfully she's been caught) is a cult of personality issue. any charismatic person, regardless of insert arbitrary characteristic of your choice here, can utilize the power of personality to get away with terrible things. this is more readily an example of what a sociopath is capable of, then it is an indication of racial privilege. so tired of seeing this weak argument getting props on social media. this soft racism goes in all directions. it's gross how trendy it is. I'm with Morgan Friedman.

What's startling about this podcast is the exposure of possible lives put in serious danger where health care testing was used as the tool to gain trust....for financial gain. Thank you for your work.

Regina Rose Yeh there must have been so many people that used results from Theranos faulty equipment to make medical decisions that ended up harming themselves. I honestly don't know how she lives with herself...
