There’s too much noise in the tech world, so we’re here to cut through it. Cancel that noise. Wait, there’s a catchy name in there somewhere… We’re here to mix tech geekery with podcast entertainment - sitting somewhere between ‘Ha - I never knew that about Apple’ and ‘Come on guys, try and be a little bit cool’, we’re here to entertain the tech fans of this world, and inform those who are just about to possibly, maybe buy that new TV. Presented by the Editors in Chief of top tech sites TechRadar, Laptop Mag and Tom's Guide (with a host of other great tech-smart guests), we'll give you the inside scoop on what really happens in the tech world. So if you've ever used an iPhone, got angry at a laptop or wondered if your headphones are really as good as you thought, download Noise Cancelling releasing every Friday, and enjoy poor attempts at wit from people who should know a lot better.

Money. Romance. Tragedy. Deception. The story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. How did the world's youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye? How did the woman once heralded as "the next Steve Jobs" find herself facing criminal charges -- to which she pleaded not guilty -- and up to 20 years in jail? How did her technology, meant to revolutionize healthcare, potentially put millions of patients at risk? And how did so many smart people get it so wrong along the way? ABC News chief business, technology and economics correspondent Rebecca Jarvis, along with producers Taylor Dunn and Victoria Thompson, take listeners on a journey that includes a three-year-long investigation. You'll hear exclusive interviews with former employees, investors, and patients, and for the first-time, the never-before-aired deposition testimony of Elizabeth Holmes, and those at the center of this story.
