Five podcasts to broaden your horizons in 2022

  1. The Dropout

By now you have probably heard about Elizabeth Holmes, the founder of failed health thechnology company Theranos which promised their customers that they are able to find out all about their health from just one drop of blood. The company was hyped up to be the new big thing and raised more than US$700 million from venture capitalists and private investors. All of that turned out to be false and at the beginning of this year Holmes has been found guilty on four of 11 charges of fraud. You can listen to how all of that unveiled in this podcast.
