The Kayleigh OKeefe Show


Jan 6, 2022

Welcome to the Kayleigh O’Keefe Show!


The rise, fall, trial, and conviction of former Founder and CEO of Theranos, Elizabeth Holmes, has intrigued Kayleigh since she first read the book Bad Blood by John Carryou, exposing the fraud and lies that formed the foundation of the former blood testing company.

This week the jury convicted Elizabeth on 4 of 11 counts of investor fraud. In this episode of The Kayleigh O’Keefe Show, Kayleigh reflects on the verdict and how her perspective of Elizabeth changed over the course of the trial. 

Tune into today’s episode of The Kayleigh O’Keefe Show to learn more about:

  • What this case really says about our leadership class  
  • The many high-profile government officials that bolstered Theranos in its early days
  • How Elizabeth was caught in our cultural crosshairs and love of personality over substance
  • How Kayleigh’s perception of Elizabeth softened during the trial - but not for the reasons you might expect
