4.5/5

Critic Rating

Bad Bets unravels big-business dramas that have had a big impact on our world. In Season 2, we delve into the story of Nikola founder Trevor Milton, who promised a future of zero-emission trucks but was taken down by a ragtag bunch of whistleblowers and short sellers. Season 2 is hosted by Ben Foldy.

Ximena Smith • Stuff NZ Dec 10, 2022

"(Series: The Unraveling of Trevor Milton) Hosted by journalist Ben Foldy, Bad Bets takes listeners through Milton’s tremendous rise and catastrophic fall, speaking to a number of people he burned along the way. The series is also directed by Sruthi Pinnamaneni (former senior journalist at Reply All); her influence is clear in the crisp, nicely edited storytelling."
