In American Scandal, host Lindsay Graham again dives deep into American history, but this time to get on the inside of some of the most infamous—or forgotten—scandals this nation has seen: steroids in sports, oil on Alaskan beaches, arms deals in Iran, drug deals in Nicaragua, demented cult leaders in West Virgina and disgraced politicians across the country. Created by Graham for Wondery, American Scandal evocatively uses music and immersive sound design to capture your attention and pull you into the story. It debuted at #2 on the Apple Podcasts Charts and has remained in the Top 100 week after week.
