I woke up this morning and it dawned on me quickly that next week is Christmas! And, it’s Day 5 of Blogmas! So that being said, I’m currently at work, trying to wrap a bunch of things up before the break (I work at a university so we’re closed for Christmas and New Years) and it’s one of those days that I need to put my head down and just clear things off my desk. I find the best way to do that, is by either listening to music or podcast, but I wasn’t really feeling listening to anything that I was currently subscribed to – so I went searching.
Ultimately, I can across “The Dropout” – a six part series based on the real life story of Elizabeth Holmes and the company she built Theranos. Now when I was younger, I have a vague recollection of seeing headlines regarding this story on CNN (thanks Dad!). But let me tell you the story surrounding Elizabeth has everything – a girl with bold ambitions and determination, greed, fraud, and lies. Being a true crime enthusiast this ticked all the boxes that I like. Episodes are about 45 minutes in length but they don’t feel long or drawn out. The pace and narration of each episode is fantastic.
Who says you can’t enjoy a true American crime story during the Christmas season?
