Paco and George are joined by comedian Sara DeForest to recap Alex Gibney’s HBO documentary THE INVENTOR: Out For Blood In Silicon Valley. It's the story of Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes, the low-talking, non-blinking CEO that promised to revolutionize blood testing. Elizabeth Holmes became the world's youngest self-made billionaire and was heralded as the next Steve Jobs until a huge fraud scandal lead to the dissolution of her multibillion-dollar company. 

Our guest is San Francisco comic Sara DeForest, a marketing consultant and writer who has her own trajectory in the tech industry and shares a hilarious Elizabeth Holmes anecdote. Sara also writes for the sketch groups Basement Party and End Games.

We get to know Sara and play Cast This Doc and Doc Pitch.
