For our April Feminist Culture Club, we’ll be discussing The Dropout, ABC’s popular podcast about tech pioneer Elizabeth Holmes and the downfall of her company Theranos. It traces the fascinating story of how Holmes went from the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire to being indicted for fraud charges, how a company that promised to change the world led to allegedly making patients more vulnerable, and how the media was unknowingly complicit in both. Its all here: betrayal, hubris, fame, even love.
Have a listen, then if you are compelled follow the thread to the news articles, book and even a documentary (though that’s absolutely not necessary for attending this edition of Feminist Culture Club).
Feminist Culture Club is our monthly book club with a difference. We include podcasts and articles, fiction and non-fiction, short stories and TV series, anything that catches our attention that has been created by women. Since we launched, we’ve discussed the work of Hannah Gadsby, Ali Wong, Lisa Congdon, Chimanda Ngozi Adichie, Jill Soloway, Nigel Poor, Amy Sherman Palladino and more.
