The Dropout

The Dropout

ABC News
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 decades in prison? How did her technology, meant to revolutionize health care, 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 multi-year 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. Then, go inside the courtroom as 12 jurors decide the fate of the Theranos founder; three years after she was first charged, we find out how this saga finally ends.

My mind is blown on this one- hearing what the defense is planning on bringing up I was just baffled, but I’m curious what other people think! If you were a juror and Barr off just what we know so far, which was would you vote?

She has a kid now?! I’m very interested to listen to what happens with her trial…
Still following this story because it's just too juicy. Like others, I was shocked to see that Elizabeth was taking the stand, but then again it does make sense since she's so good at being persuasive!
