Episode SummaryJohn Carreyrou literally wrote the book on Theranos – the bestseller “Bad Blood,” which built on his earlier writing at the WSJ that broke the story. With Elizabeth Holmes scheduled to be sentenced this week, I sat down with John to get the inside scoop on how he uncovered the Theranos fraud, his take on Holmes, what went wrong and why, and what her sentence is likely to be.Sydney Finkelstein Syd Finkelstein is the Steven Roth Professor of Management at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College. He holds a Master's degree from the London School of Economics and a Ph.D. from Columbia University. Professor Finkelstein has published 25 books and 90 articles, including the bestsellers Why Smart Executives Fail and Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent, which LinkedIn Chairman Reid Hoffman calls the “leadership guide for the Networked Age.” He is also a Fellow of the Academy of Management, a consultant and speaker to leading companies around the world, and a top 25 on the Global Thinkers 50 list of top management gurus. Professor Finkelstein's research and consulting work often relies on in-depth and personal interviews with hundreds of people, an experience that led him to create and host his own podcast, The Sydcast, to uncover and share the stories of all sorts of fascinating people in business, sports, entertainment, politics, academia, and everyday life.John CarreyrouJohn Carreyrou is the author of the New York Times bestselling book Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup. In his reporting for The Wall Street Journal, he was the first to break the scandal surrounding the failed biomedical startup Theranos and the disturbing lies of its wunderkind founder, Stanford dropout Elizabeth Holmes. A compelling speaker, Carreyrou discusses the ethical lapses, the credulous media coverage, and the lax oversight that allowed Theranos to achieve a “unicorn” valuation of $9 billion and shares with audiences the lessons that can be learned from its fall.Bad Blood was also named the Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year. The HBO documentary based on the Theranos story, The Inventor, was directed by Academy Award winner Alex Gibney and premiered at Sundance. A graduate of Duke University, Carreyrou lives in Brooklyn, New York, with his wife and three children.Insights from this episode: Details about John's bookTheranos scandal and how John discovered itThe intimidation, threats, and stonewalling John experienced when covering the scandalDetails about Elizabeth Holmes's trialConfidential informants being stalked during the trialWhat Elizabeth Holmes did wrong and how she was able to build credibilityQuotes from the show:“I had done a lot of reporting about health care medicine by then and enough to know that that's not usually how things happen (Theranos scandal). Usually, people who make advances in medical fields are trained and then do decades of research before they add value” —John Carreyrou [9:14]“It wasn't until late April/May of 2015 that I began approaching the company and letting them know that I was doing a story and could they answer these questions. At that point they tried to stonewall me, they gave me the silent treatment for about a month, but then I think it dawned on them that I wasn't going away” —John Carreyrou [20:21]“They knew that those three employees (Adam Rosendorff, Tyler Shultz, and Erika Cheung) had left with objections and raising doubts, and their suspicions immediately gravitated toward them” —John Carreyrou [24:39]“That's what you call affinity fraud. You surround yourself with people who have a lot of credibility and prestigious names, and you borrow their credibility. That is very much what took place. In this case, Elizabeth was able to do that” —John Carreyrou [40:23]“She was convicted of defrauding investors. To me, that isn't the worst part of the scandal. What I consider to be the worst part is the fact she went live with a medical product that didn't work. She had a machine called the Edison, it was very limited and its capabilities could only do a handful of blood tests, and it didn't perform it accurately” —John Carreyrou [29:23]“To me, her biggest crime is that she knowingly commercialized a medical product that she knew was deficient, that she knew was flawed, that she knew didn't work. She put patients in harm's way, she endangered the public health” —John Carreyrou [30:30]“[About cutting corners] Elizabeth Holmes is someone who was well aware of this history, of this lure. She knew that people like Larry Ellison and Steve Jobs had cut corners earlier in their careers and she felt entitled to do the same” —John Carreyrou [33:21]“The Theranos scandal is a reminder that fine, bring your new ideas and your money to the problems in healthcare but, you got to remember it's not the same world as software and that the stakes are much higher. If you don't bear that in mind then what happened to Elizabeth Holmes will happen to you” —John Carreyrou [37:07]Stay connected:Sydney FinkelsteinWebsite: http://thesydcast.comLinkedIn: Sydney FinkelsteinTwitter: @sydfinkelsteinFacebook: The SydcastInstagram: The SydcastJohn CarreyrouLinkedIn: John Carreyrou Twitter: John CarreyrouSubscribe to our podcast + download each episode on Stitcher, iTunes, and Spotify.This episode was produced and managed by Podcast Laundry.

Join America's Roundtable (https://americasrt.com/) Radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy in a conversation with Peter M. Robinson, Murdoch Distinguished Policy Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Host of Uncommon Knowledge (https://www.hoover.org/publications/uncommon-knowledge)™ — Hoover's Video Series Program and Former Special Assistant and Speechwriter to President Ronald Reagan. Peter Robinson is the Murdoch Distinguished Policy Fellow at the Hoover Institution, where he writes about business and politics, edits Hoover's quarterly journal, the Hoover Digest (https://www.hoover.org/publications/hoover-digest), and hosts Hoover's video series program, Uncommon Knowledge (https://www.hoover.org/publications/uncommon-knowledge)™. Robinson spent six years in the White House, serving from 1982 to 1983 as chief speechwriter to Vice President George Bush and from 1983 to 1988 as special assistant and speechwriter to President Ronald Reagan. He wrote the historic Berlin Wall address in which President Reagan called on General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall!" The conversation will begin by focusing on the 33rd anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. On November 9, 1989, five days after a major peaceful protest in East Berlin which gathered half a million people, the communist rulers gave permission for gates along the Berlin Wall to be opened. The fall of Communist Eastern Europe was hastened by the principled leadership of President Ronald Reagan joined by then-UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II, Germany's Helmut Kohl, Vaclav Havel, leaders within Poland, and other countries in the Soviet block yearning for freedom. The historic day reminded the world of a speech that was delivered on June 12, 1987 by President Ronald Reagan when he shared these words (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WX00QkvK-mQ&feature=youtu.be): "_Behind me stands a wall that encircles the free sectors of this city, part of a vast system of barriers that divides the entire continent of Europe. . . . Standing before the Brandenburg Gate, every man is a German, separated from his fellow men. Every man is a Berliner, forced to look upon a scar. . . . As long as this gate is closed, as long as this scar of a wall is permitted to stand, it is not the German question alone that remains open, but the question of freedom for all mankind. . . . General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberalization, come here to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!_" —Ronald Reagan, address at the Brandenburg Gate, June 12, 1987 Topics covered on America's Roundtable (https://americasrt.com/): — Reflecting on the 33rd Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. — President Ronald Reagan's principled leadership and his clear articulation of moral clarity based on timeless principles and values. —Peter Robinson shares the real story behind the speech in Berlin, how the message captured the realities on the ground during the Cold War, and the opposition by advisors opposing Reagan's challenge to Gorbachev. — The Unfinished Work in advancing freedom and the rule of law in Eastern Europe. — Brief observations of the US midterm elections and public policies in America.

The American Revolution disrupted the trans-Atlantic ties between American and British Protestants.  Imperial Protestantism had helped helped to drive support for the British Empire, and the Empire seemed to Protestants on both sides of the Atlantic to be a way to propagate the faith.  But the Revolution  forced a recalibration of the role of religion in the lives of 18th-century citizens across the Atlantic World.  Professor Katherine Carté discusses all this with us, in a conversation about her award-winning book, Religion and the American Revolution: An Imperial History.

107: Zoning policy with William Fischel

In this episode Michael speaks with Bill Fischel, professor of Economics at Dartmouth College. Bill is arguably the global expert on zoning rules used by municipalities in the United States to influence development patterns at the local level. During their conversation, Bill describes a shift from pro-growth to anti-growth approaches to local zoning in the United States (with exceptions being mostly in the South and in the city of Houston, Texas in particular, which has no zoning laws). During this shift, home-owners came to view their houses as investments or financial assets, whose exchange value they needed to protect, in addition to their use value as a home. This was partly because houses were one of the few assets whose value kept up with the rampant inflation in the 1970s, and because of some supportive tax policies.  Observing these trends led Bill to propose the Homevoter hypothesis, in which he argues that home-owners whose housing prices correlate with each other constitute an interest group, and who once they determined that additional housing in their communities would decrease their property values, decided to change zoning laws to prevent such development. This is an example of successful collective action on their part to contribute to a local public good: housing prices. But this is also a story of exclusion: the only way to promote this in-group public good is to exclude outsiders. A final part of the conversation touches on the use of homeowners of environmental policies that also started in the 1970s to fight against development. And in this context homeowners in many areas have expressed what is known as NIMBYism (not in my backyard), who may argue for inclusive public housing policies, as long as it doesn't happen where they live.   References: Fischel, W.A. 2015.

It's important to understand that it's a powerful tool and has to be used with quite a bit of care” —Dave Johnson [22:19]“Some of that criticism is healthy and useful for furthering, both restraining and honing the idea as it moves forward and some of it is just, for lack of a better phrase, complaining” —Dave Johnson [23:31]“Steve Jobs is famous for, I'm going to paraphrase him, ‘People think that design is how the product looks. We don't think that at all, design is how the product works'” —Dave Johnson [26:09]“Design is going from the idea, the concept, to actually creating the service or product. Virtually none of which has anything to do with the marketing department” —Dave Johnson [26:17]“It's in human nature, it's deep in our brain DNA: We respond to critical threats, and we do not respond well to chronic threats. We respond to the acute and not the chronic, and climate change is the chronic” —Dave Johnson [40:46]“We are waiting for, in America, too long, for some kind of trigger spark that gets everybody to take the step from outside of the circle to inside the circle, and that then develops its own momentum” —Dave Johnson [48:30]Stay connected:Sydney FinkelsteinWebsite: http://thesydcast.comLinkedIn: Sydney FinkelsteinTwitter: @sydfinkelsteinFacebook: The SydcastInstagram: The SydcastMaron GreenleafLinkedIn: Dave Johnson Website: David JohnsonSubscribe to our podcast + download each episode on Stitcher, iTunes, and Spotify.This episode was produced and managed by Podcast Laundry.

In January 1942, a young Black man from Kansas wrote a letter to the editor of the Pittsburgh Courier, the nation's largest Black newspaper at the time. He poignantly asked the questions that many Black men also asked while serving in a segregated military during World War II. “Should I sacrifice my life to live half American?” wrote James G. Thompson. “Will things be better for the next generation in the peace to follow? Would it be demanding too much to demand full citizenship rights in exchange for the sacrificing of my life? Is the kind of America I know worth defending?” That letter echoed in the mind of historian Matthew Delmont. The title of his new book, “Half American” was inspired by Thompson's letter. In it, he painfully recounts what Black service members of the day faced as they fought in a segregated military. During World War II, Black Americans were inspired by the idea of a double victory — to defeat not only the fascism abroad, but also racism at home. But the idea of equality was dismissed by many in leadership, who saw the cry as radical and even seditious. Friday, on Big Books and Bold Ideas, host Kerri Miller spoke with Delmont about how Black men and women fought for that double victory, why Black Americans saw World War II coming before white Americans did, and how what we acknowledge — or ignore — in history shapes our world today. Guest: Matthew Delmont is the Sherman Fairchild Distinguished Professor of History at Dartmouth College and an expert on African American history and the history of civil rights. His new book is “Half American: The Epic Story of African Americans Fighting World War II at Home and Abroad.” To listen to the full conversation you can use the audio player above.  Subscribe to the MPR News with Kerri Miller podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts or RSS.
