Sam says ‘I love discovering quirky podcast treats, The Case of The Missing Hit and Ta Dum It’s Netflix are two such episodes, gems that you just want to pass onto others. My other podcast picks include the unbelievable but true story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos, detailed in The Drop Out, this had me gripped from the first episode. I then read the book, watched the HBO documentary, followed the news updates and generally couldn’t get enough of the story!’
