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.

Excellence in podcasting

American Scandal truly sets the bar for investigative journalism. Lindsey doesn’t tell new stories per se, but he revives long-forgotten tales that deserve to be heard again. His recreations are surprisingly easy to listen to, and the stories are so well written that I am amazed when 40 minutes has gone by. I love this show so so much, especially the Tuskegee series!

Love, love, love the American Scandal podcast.

I love the American Scandal podcast!!! I would love to hear about the college basketball scandal that has seemingly been buried in the news. It is common knowledge that there’s a bunch of corruption in all that business.

I love this podcast

Love the podcast but I don’t believe that it’s only the black woman have birth problems. I’m a white woman been pregnant three times had preeclampsia with all three. First baby was born 3 1/2 weeks early, miscarried the 2nd baby, was induced 5 weeks early with my 3rd baby do to my kidneys shutting down. 3rd baby was also in intensive care for 3 weeks then came home on a apnea machine.
