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.

Great reporting, more voice actors maybe?
The Exxon Valdez story had me from the get go, terrifically done. Heart breaking and illuminating all the way through.
I will agree with some of the negative reviews about the re-enactments. It took me a few episodes to get used to it... the biggest problem was the voice of Riki Ott being male. But I did get used to it, you just have to pay closer attention.
Shame on Wondery for producing such a biased story about the Exxon Valdez. What a major disappointment.
Can’t wait for this podcast???
Lisa Page testimony released and it shows what we always suspected. So If you put all the pieces together here's what you get...
The DNC rigs the Democratic Primary Election against Bernie Sanders so Hillary could win the nomination. Obama's administration starts to request surveillance on Trump, his family, his transition team, and anyone associated with him. Donna Brazil gives Hillary the questions to a debate.
The DNC ( Hillary) pays Christopher Steele to come up with a smear dossier about Trump. The mainstream media releases a taped conversation about Trump talking about grabbing women parts. After all this Trump still wins the General Election. Obama orders an investigation into Russia meddling in our elections. Obama changes Executive Order 12333 to allow more agencies to have access to surveillance data.
The Democratic Party comes up with a scandal that Trump Colluded with Russia to win the election with no evidence or proof.
This wild claim is backed up by the mainstream media. Obama hold overs start unmasking Trump's transition team and staff members then release the classified information to the mainstream media. Why? Because the DNC and the Obama administration Colluded with the intelligence community to thwart Trump's campaign efforts to get him elected president. All this Russia collusion is an attempt to cover up the fact that the Obama administration, the intelligence community, the DNC, along with the mainstream media used our nations surveillance as a political tool to try to get Hillary elected President.
This makes Watergate look like a kindergarten play. Let that sink in
