Here is one of our favorite episodes of Recode Decode, originally published in May 2018. In it, Recode's Kara Swisher talks to Wall Street Journal investigative reporter John Carreyrou about his book about Theranos, "Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup." They discuss founder Elizabeth Holmes' obsession with Steve Jobs, how red flags about her blood-testing technology were dismissed, and how everything came crashing down. Featuring: John Carreyrou (@JohnCarreyrou), author, Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup Hosts: Kara Swisher (@karaswisher), Recode co-founder and editor-at-large More to explore: On Reset, Arielle Duhaime-Ross explores why — and how — tech is changing everything. On Recode Media, Peter Kafka interviews business titans, journalists, comedians and podcasters about the collision of tech and media. On Pivot, Kara Swisher and Scott Galloway talk about the big tech news stories of the week, who's winning, who's failing, and what comes next. And on Season 1 of Land of the Giants, Jason Del Rey chronicled the rise of Amazon — and now, on Season 2, Peter Kafka and Rani Molla are examining "the Netflix effect."
