British Scandal

De: Wondery
  • Sumário

  • In a country obsessed with gossip, the great and the good fear one thing more than any other - scandal.

    British scandals change the course of history. They bring down governments, overthrow the rich and cause the mighty to fall. Some are about sex, others about money. In the end, they’re all about power.

    But often at the heart of a scandal, there are ordinary human stories. Stories of those caught up in the swirl of outrage.

    Who was really to blame for what happened? Why did they do it? And when all is said and done, did anything really change?

    From the creators of Business Wars, American Scandal and Ghost Story, comes British Scandal. Each week, hosts Alice Levine and Matt Forde delve into the murkier side of the British elite, from Phone Hacking to Profumo to the short-lived premiership of Liz Truss. Because sometimes the truth doesn’t set everyone free…
