New episodes come out every Tuesday for free, with 1-week early access for Wondery+ subscribers.
In a country obsessed with gossip, the great and the good fear one thing more than any other - scandal.
British scandals change the course of history. They bring down governments, overthrow the rich and cause the mighty to fall. Some are about sex, others about money. In the end, they’re all about power. 
But often at the heart of a scandal, there are ordinary human stories, stories of those caught up in the swirl of outrage. 
Who was really to blame for what happened? Why did they do it? And when all is said and done, did anything really change?   
From the creators of Business Wars, American Scandal and Even The Rich, comes British Scandal. We tell the stories of the murkier side of the British elite, from Phone Hacking to Saville to Profumo who show us the reality of power, the price of pride and the failings of the great and good. Because sometimes the truth doesn’t set everyone free…

Emelie Sundqvist ,

Absolutely love it!

Found the podcast because I simply adore Alice in My dad wrote a… and her task master season was the greatest!

The first series of this informative and funny podcast captivated me from episode 1 and the rest has been just as interesting.

Lots of love from Sweden <3

Fröken Svår ,

Love the hosts

Great humour, love the comments from the hosts

MissDullis ,

Love the fast pace!

I read a review that was annoyed by the hosts interrupting, making jokes. That is what I love❣️ It’s british humour at its best, and I dream back to my years (before the 4 kids arrived) living in London. Also, I love the challange of having to think fast - a welcome balance to all the ’explain again, I didn’t hear’ of everyday domestic life. Keep up the good work! Hear, hear❣️
