Every scandal begins with a lie. But the truth will come out. And then comes the fallout and the outrage.
Scandals have shaped America since its founding. From business and politics to sports and society, we look on aghast as corruption, deceit and ambition bring down heroes and celebrities, politicians and moguls. And when the dust finally settles, we’re left to wonder: how did this happen? Where did they trip up, and who is to blame? From the creators of American History Tellers, Business Wars and Tides of History comes American Scandal, where we take you deep into the heart of America’s dark side to look at what drives someone to break the rules and what happens when they’re caught. Hosted by Lindsay Graham.

DBGlobal ,

Just an awesome serie

This is truly an awesome produciton. The research that is put into this series is in my view second to none class of research.

Dadoism ,

This is a class act of binge listening podcast

American Scandal and British Scandal are both slick, high quality productions that demand to be binged. Highly recommended

MarfaChagin ,

Time for a Payola story in Australia

Meldrum & his cronies in commercial radio setting an agenda where young talent was shut out of the music market. Thank goodness for Triple J, public radio & community stations.
