Podcast Recommendation: The Dropout… a different kind of true crime podcast in Silicon Valley

article image placeholderUploaded by @Tim
I'm not generally a fan of two crime podcasts. I'm just not interested in solving unsolved murders. But this exploration of Whitecollar crime, of the fraud committed Elizabeth Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos in this Silicon Valley morality tale that I have been riveted by. I've watched documentaries. I've listened and read the audiobook by John Kerry, Roo and Hulu is about to drop. Now a fictional story

Science & ambition & money & tech & fraud… https://s.swell.life/SSymaCMbf1M2K5N #Theranos #SiliconValley

Hey, Tim, I'm going to check it out for sure. I watched that documentary and I've been following the trial, and it's kind of riveting. We're going to be having some more true crime conversations here on Swell because it's such a fascinating aspect of recording when you really enable people to drop into all the voices, all the aspects, all the incredible details that sometimes you miss in regular 06:00 news segments. I didn't know this even existed, so I'm Super excited

But thank you for sharing another one and especially one that you feel so passionate about because it sounds like you don't really watch too many of them and this one specifically got your attention. So I appreciate your suggestion and I plan on hopefully seeing this in the next couple of days and getting some feedback as well. And interested to hear what others have to say about this one. Yeah

This is such a fascinating story and case and obviously one that's been highlighted in the media quite a bit. And as a true crime producer, you listen to this podcast asked which is very well done, very well researched, very well executed. And you think how did so many people not see these warning signs and how did it get to go on for CPR so long? So thank you for jumping in and talking about this case on Swell Cast. It's definitely a fascinating one
