THE DROP OUT
Money. Romance. Tragedy. Deception. The story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. How did the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye? How did the woman once heralded as “the next Steve Jobs” find herself facing criminal charges — to which she pleaded not guilty — and up to 20 years in jail?

DEAR JOAN & JERICHA
Not for the faint of heart, hilarious comedians Julia Davis and Vicki Pepperdine take on the role of two judgmental thoroughly convincing agony aunts. Cringe-inducing wisdom is the core of their business and the chat veers from the absurd to the filthy, all perfectly delivered in the prim way of two know it alls.
Criminal is a podcast about crime. Not so much the “if it bleeds, it leads,” kind of crime. Something a little more complex. Stories of people who’ve done wrong, been wronged, and/or gotten caught somewhere in the middle.
