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.

"The narrator does such a fantastic job telling the story in an interesting way and acting as the people really well. "
"This podcast combines historical events and dramatized re-enactments of what happened in those moments. The Attica, Enron, and Theranos mini-series are excellent. Lindsay does an amazing job of bringing the story to life and making you feel like you're actually there listening to these conversations."
