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.

Binge worthy!

I accidentally stumbled onto this podcast and am so happy I did. I’m riveted by the in depth reporting on events I lived through but am now getting a background summary and progressive outlay of facts. But it’s reported in a compelling way, engaging with the actual personalities of those involved. This is not the austere just-the-facts journalism but character studies of those involved and that changed our history forever.

As a true crime podcast curator, this has become one of my favs

I've binged every true crime podcast out there and compared to the stereotypical serial killer, white collar, environmental, geopolitical crime is just as devastating and often results in zero accountability from the bad actors. The massive impact these scandals plague unwitting victims is both heartbreaking and infuriating. I started with the Exxon Valdez scandal as I just returned from a vacation in AK with my family. Really appreciate the in-depth research and anecdotal narrative of those that corporate greed repeatedly victimize with the proverbial slap on the wrist as the only consequence. It's simply a cost of doing business. Looking forward to more episodes.

Love the show, but

I have really enjoyed every episode through all seasons. This is a very well produced podcast. I do listen to other podcasts as I’m sure many of you do. I found it a little disheartening to hear an advertisement “putting down” other podcasts that are produced independently. Really? It was in bad taste, or possibly you feel threatened? Please remove that advertisement. If that had never occurred I would have given you five stars. I would also add I purchased the Lindsey Graham podcast about President Lincoln. So I would consider myself more than a casual listener. Thank you.
