ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Wall Street Journal reporter John Carreyrou started digging into unusual practices at a Silicon valley start-up, Theranos, in 2014. What he uncovered was fraud and deception at a monumental scale. The company was headed by a charismatic young woman, Elizabeth Holmes, who had come up with an idea to make a blood-testing method that was faster, cheaper and more accurate than the conventional methods. But the vision was built on false promises and empty dreams althougth it didn't stop the company from raising billions in venture capital. John Carreyrou kept digging despite being warned off and exposed the scam in many articles and his book, Bad Blood.
