140: The Cult of Theranos : Elizabeth Holmes Trial Update with Rebekah Sebastian!

Little bit of blood but a lotta bit of trouble! Rebakah Sebastian guest on this week’s episode to update us on the Elizabeth Holmes/Theranos trial. Caity and Rebekah go over the new evidence, the basis of the case, and the absolutely unbelievable gall of starting a medical company without any background in medicine. Caity shares her own experience with blood testing and genetics counseling and why it’s SO important for accurate, informed work in this industry for the sake of patients. Rebekah and Caity speculate how Elizabeth Holmes used cult-like tactics to scam and misrepresent her company and her investors. 

Check out Rebekah’s podcast Die-alogue! And her pod about crime in reality TV, Criminality!
