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.

    Introducing: Power - Hugh Hefner

    Who was Hugh Hefner? Centerfold models, Playboy Bunnies, and other women from the Playboy founder’s inner circle, like TV personality and author Holly Madison, tell journalist Amy Rose Spiegel their side of his story. We hear how Playboy changed their lives, for better and for worse. Beyond the bunny tails are darker questions: What actually went on at the notorious Playboy Mansion? How can we square Hefner's progressive legacy with his abuse of vulnerable people? What can the Playboy saga tell us about sex and power—then and now?

The Clinton lewinsky affair

Excellent story and coverage. I had to subscribe after listening.

Good stories but…

I really like the stories, but the one thing that bothers me is why the “voices” of the characters are not portrayed by more than one person? Everyone, when given a “voice” has the same male voice. Why are the women given a male voice? This is very confusing in the beginning episodes and just annoying as you continue each following episode. Just my opinion.

Attica episode

I liked this podcast until I listened to the Attica episode. All can I say is that it is certainly marginally entertaining. The bias of the writer is painfully evident. This story is told through a very opaque filter that presents the inmates as heroes and the correction officers as villains. Not true. Prison reform needed to happen and still does. Riots do not accomplish this. There are better and less violent ways. I’m done with this podcast.
