Elizabeth Holmes, founder of Theranos, is headed to trial for allegedly defrauding investors and patients by misrepresenting the capabilities and accuracy of her blood-testing technology. Winning the jury's sympathy is her best option to get acquitted. There are several ways she can do that.

The Svengali Defense - having a baby to sway the jury - Ebola - lying about government contracts - microbiology horror stories - delusional or con artist?

This was pretty gripping and also doesn’t involve murder or violence, so my favorite kind of true crime podcast! Carreyrou doesn’t have the most natural delivery but he’s doing a serviceable job. Admittedly it is super gross that Holmes and Balwani met when she was a senior in high school and he was 37.

I NEED to know whether she's still doing the fake deep voice.

I guess we’ll find out! The trial was supposed to start yesterday. I had never heard her speak before, sooooo…. That was weird.
