John Carreyrou of the Wall Street Journal on Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos: When does a dream factory dream too big? And when everyone wakes up, what's the damage?
     The acclaim for Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes went well beyond the borders of tech. Theranos, she said, would revolutionize blood testing, making it simpler, faster, and cheaper. Those claims boosted her onto the covers of Forbes and Fortune magazine; Inc.dubbed her "The Next Steve Jobs".
     In 2015, John Carreyrou of the Wall Street Journal pointed out the gulf between the company's promises and its actual results. Scrutiny by the SEC, FDA, and other federal and state agencies led to fraud allegations; lab work was suspended and lawsuits filed. When the dust settled, the big question remained: how did a framework of fantasy with so little substance hoodwink investors and the public? How does what we want to believe play out in the world of real money and real science? And if this is all a cautionary tale, what cautions does it leave us with?
     Carreyrou's reporting on Theranos netted him a George Polk award. His subsequent book is being filmed with Jennifer Lawrence.

Bernice Yeung: In a Day's Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence Against America's Most Vulnerable Workers. Online and in real space, the #MeToo movement has raised awareness of gender inequality - from subtle harassment to sexual predation - to unprecedented levels of discussion. Charlie Rose and Harvey Weinstein have experienced in shatteringly public falls. Politicians have been forced from office. Bill Cosby has been convicted.
     What effect has all this had on the least visible Americans - and can they, too, get justice? Bernice Yeung contributed to a groundbreaking collaboration between the Center for Public Investigation and numerous public media agencies. The resulting exposés, Rape in the Fields and Rape on the Night Shift, won numerous journalism awards. Bernice's new book, In a Day's Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence Against America's Most Vulnerable Workers, takes the exploration even further.

Ken Jennings grew up in Seoul, South Korea, where he became a daily devotee of the quiz show Jeopardy! In 2004, he successfully auditioned for a spot on the show and went on an unprecedented seventy-four game victory streak worth $2.52 million. Jennings’s book Brainiac, about his Jeopardy! adventures, was a critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller, as were his follow-up books Maphead and Because I Said So! He is also the author of Planet Funny. Jennings lives in Seattle with his wife Mindy and two children.
     From Jon Stewart to Donald Trump, Chaucer to Sumerian Tablets, fart jokes to Cable TV “zingers,” Ken Jennings lends his signature wit and whizzing, encyclopedic perspective to the history of humor and how it came to dominate our modern world. Today, an unprecedented number of people get their news from comedy shows. Newspapers race to find the catchiest headline with an avidity that forgets the need to inform. In our democracy, showmanship has replaced good-nature debate. Jennings looks at the foundations of these current manifestations and what this says for where we might be headed.

Ken Auletta. We’re saturated in advertising. Online, on billboards, flashing on sidewalks – iSpace in Japan plans to project ads on the moon by 2020.
     But advertising is no longer a robust industry. Consumer distrust and ad-killing technology have frayed it into hostile camps with uncertain futures. Still: if you’re not in the business, why should you care?Because, Ken Auletta says: no advertising means no media.
     Auletta adds to his long career as a savvy observer of American business and communication with Frenemies: The Epic Destruction of the Advertising Industry (And Why This Matters). Auletta is uniquely positioned to probe this latest turn in a key industry. He’s penned the "Annals of Communications" column for The New Yorker since 1992; he’s profiled the greatest influencers of media both traditional and digital, including Bill Gates, Rupert Murdoch, and Ted Turner.
     Ken Auletta joins KLF’s journalist in residence Angie Coiro for her This Is Now series, for an evening of wide-ranging conversation about media, advertising, and its role in the life of us all.

Ars Technica's Cyrus Farivar, author of Habeas Data: Privacy vs. the Rise of Surveillance Tech.
     As internet use grew wider and social media sites proliferated, quiet but urgent voices began to warn that we were giving too much of ourselves away. But the exchange of privacy for free goodies seemed fair enough to most - or at least the skyrocketing growth of Facebook and its counterparts indicated.
     The parallel explosion of public surveillance cameras and law enforcement license plate readers was greeted with more or less the same collective shrug. They make us safer. Most of us have nothing to hide.
     The Cambridge Analytica scandal has finally given pause to even to the most indifferent. What is our information being used for, and who's paying for it? How has our identifying data gone from buying cheerful digital farm animals to swaying world events? Is it too late to put on the brakes?
     Join us for an evening of our ongoing series This Is Now with Angie Coiro, featuring Ars Technica journalist Cyrus Farivar, author of Habeas Data: Privacy vs. the Rise of Surveillance Tech. Knowledge of new tech and the efforts to protect consumers from its rougher edges will definitely make it worth your time.

Chris Hedges hasn't given up on America. That may not be the immediate impression from his reporting, nor from his books, where he describes "the opioid crisis, the retreat into gambling to cope with economic distress, the pornification of culture, the rise of magical thinking, the celebration of sadism, hate, and plagues of suicides." But grasping the unvarnished reality is essential to fixing everything that's gone wrong both nationally and worldwide. Hedges' work, from his contribution to the New York Time's 2002 Pulitzer Prize to his most recent book America: The Farewell Tour urges us not to compromise as we assess today's political and societal realities. And he says that neither mainstream political party addresses our systemic problems - nor can they, until our country's "corporate coup d’état" is reversed.
     Chris Hedges served as a foreign correspondent for nearly two decades for The New York Times, The Dallas Morning News, The Christian Science Monitor and National Public Radio. His bestselling books include American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America, Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacyand the Triumph of Spectacle, and War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning. Hedges is a Senior Fellow at The Nation Institute and writes an online column for the web site Truthdig.
