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.

    In 1993, a massive conflict erupts in rural Texas. The federal government launches a siege against the Branch Davidians, a religious group based in the outskirts of Waco.

Recommend it to everyone

I come from Sweden and I recommend it to everyone I know. Getting deep behind the big stories that we usually just have fragments of - discovering what’s really behind the headlines. Reenactments in the show makes you feel like you are closer to the action.

Fantastic

Started listening to AS back when the Iran Contras was running, and from that day i’ve been following every episode.
The way the stories are told, it is just a great mixture of facts and at the same time makes you feel like a fly on the wall when some of the things really took place.

Lindsay is a fantastic storyteller with the best voice.
The production is top notch

Åelftbdkghg ,

Well done!

It is full of facts, accurate, interesting and never boring. I have listened to Big tobacco and Exxon Valdez and can’t wait to listen to the rest of the stories. The dramatized parts makes it more varied.
