This acclaimed podcast is back to take you inside the trial of Elizabeth Holmes
If you’ve been captivated by the case of Elizabeth Holmes – the Theranos founder and CEO who fell from grace after reports that her revolutionary blood-testing technology might be fraudulent – you’ve probably been following her ongoing criminal trial with avid curiosity. Earlier this month, the woman once dubbed the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire entered a California courthouse to hear the prosecution’s opening statement. And now, hit podcast The Dropout (named in reference to Holmes’ infamous departure from Stanford University) has returned to give us an insider’s view of the action.
Hosted by ABC News correspondent Rebecca Jarvis, the audio series premiered in 2019 after Holmes was charged with fraud over the accuracy of her company’s finger-prick testing. Now, its second season is chronicling proceedings from her long-awaited trial. With new episodes dropping every Tuesday, The Dropout: Elizabeth Holmes On Trial has already caught listeners up on Holmes’ activities while the case has been building (including a new relationship, a baby and distressing allegations of abuse), as well as never-before-aired deposition testimony from “the dropout” herself. Unfolding in real time until Holmes’s fate is finally decided, this is one real-life listen that will only get more fascinating. Listen on Apple Podcasts and Spotify
