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.

Interesting and Informative

Listened to the Iran-Contra series and it was excellent. Lindsay Graham has an excellent speaking voice and gift for storytelling. Having her chance to learn about big scandals that I only know the surface info on while at work or in the car is my kinda history. Oh, don’t like the commercials? Pay to not hear them, people gotta pay bills :)
