A new favourite, lots of details but still compellingI found it hard to wrap my head around the Enron episodes (which are the most dense in terms of jargon out of all the ones I have heard) but It meant I could listen a few times and feel myself figuring it out, and really getting my head round it. I enjoyed it! I appreciate they don’t dumb it down too much or spare details, and the story telling makes it still compelling! A new favourite..Score: 5/5

Great story tellingOverall this is a good series of podcasts. Some are on topics that have hit the headlines relatively recently so we will have heard about them, e.g. Enron, but here the complexities are unravelled in a very understandable way and even if this means some over simplification they still make gripping stories! I particularly like those hosted by Lindsay Graham who narrates in a no-nonsense fashion in an attractive voice. Female American presenters, it seems to me, have all fallen into the ‘vocal fry’ trap with a growl at the end of every sentence, which makes listening excruciating, and I wish they’d listen to themselves sometimes and eradicate this ugly speech affectation! I’ve listened to the majority of podcasts in the series, only avoiding one or two I thought might be too gruesome, and overall I applaud the effort to shine a light on some pretty dodgy practices. The one on Hare Krishna is spoilt by its last episode which is an interview with some bumbling, rambling old codger who’s apparently written the book on which the pod is based. How he’s managed to write a 600 page book when he can barely utter a complete sentence articulately or plausibly is beyond me - the editing process to turn it into a slick broadcast must have been a real labour of love! I hope the programme makers dig out some more scandals for us to feast on!.Score: 5/5

The HBO of the Podcasting networkWondery is without a doubt the HBO of the podcasting network, all their shows are professionally made and a lot of time and effort went into producing them. Needless to say I subscribe to everything they produce, so when I finally got round to listening to American Scandal I was expecting big things. And I was not disappointed! Lindsay Graham does a fantastic job of taking a huge scandal and putting it in big sized 4-5 part episodes and I am hooked! This is one of the best Wondery has put out so far and it’s a shame it took me so long to get round to listening to it..Score: 5/5

Probably my favourite podcast seriesThis is my favourite podcast series, both for the content and the presentation. It’s well researched and the presentation nicely balances the level of detail, giving you a comprehensive story without getting bogged down in irrelevant detail. There are ‘re-enactments’ imagining conversations between protagonists; but Lindsay is always careful to point out they can’t know exactly what was said. I find the conversations add a level of intimacy to the story, really helping to bring it alive. I always look forward to new episodes!.Score: 5/5

Too much like a fictional audiobookThis podcast is supposed to be covering historical events but the way it is told feels like listening to an audiobook. The host narrates one or two characters and tells us what they are thinking/ feeling and what they are saying to each other without giving us any clue of how he knows this. I constantly find myself wondering if what I’m listening to is factual or created for dramatic purposes. A shame since I am usually a Wondery fan.Score: 1/5

Brilliantly informative and great storytellingReally enjoying this podcast. Started with the Iran-Contra series as I’m particularly interested in the US’ policies in its ‘backyard’ of Central America. It’s well-researched and highly informative, well-paced, and the storytelling is well-crafted. The only issue I’ve been having is the assumption of knowledge of some American customs can impede understanding. Usually things are explained e.g. what a ‘finding’ is. However, when Walsh is battling against time in his investigation before the witnesses get congressional immunity, the reasons for this immunity aren’t explained until quite far in, which makes congress seem deeply unhelpful and leaves you wondering why it happens rather than focusing on the podcast..Score: 5/5

Having just finished series 3 my conclusion - Graham is the top of the tree. The way this podcast is produced is totally engaging. The series flows beautiful. No prior knowledge is needed to become enthralled with the often unbelievable events and decision making that unfolds. If you are reading this wondering wether to try it - just do it.

This podcast makes you smarterI love this podcast. I’m familiar with most of the scandals it covers, but usually don’t know or remember the details. The podcast is often shocking - the details of how corporations or governments have failed, or often intentionally create massive issues through incompetence or greed. My one complaint - and the reason this review is 4 stars rather than 5 - is that it has a nearly unbearable number of ads.

Conversations supposedly had by real people, where there’s no conceivable way to know the level of detail that is given by the host. I understand that they’re trying to give a dramatic retelling of events, but with so much detail being seemingly created from whole cloth, it’s difficult to know what is fact, and what is fiction for sake of telling a more compelling story.

Why I SubscribeThis and American History Tellers are the reasons I subscribe to Wondery. The episodes educate and entertain me during hours of weekend chores. Lindsay, please consider a series of episodes about the Houston Astros cheating their way through the 2017 World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Many of us baseball fans are still baffled at how the Astros players escaped repercussions and continue to tout their “victory” in subsequent seasons..Score: 5/5

GuestI love this podcast 99% of the time but this guest was a poor choice. He started off saying that he didn’t know anything about Theranos because he hasn't been following it. Then he said Theranos didn't get VC. Then he spent the rest of the podcast talking about vc firms and how they work..Score: 4/5

Love Lindsay GrahamI'll listen to almost any podcast hosted by Lindsay Graham. This one, in particular, is very interesting. The haunting transition music captures my attention and I love the details. My only criticism is sometimes the "follow-up" episode after a series lacks interest and substance. Usually, they are unnecessary..Score: 4/5

As a few others have said, being Australian there were many of these events that we missed out on hearing about in detail.

Two suggestions !!Great show. Love it. The storytelling is first class. Just two suggestions - find a female narrator for female characters !! - don’t replay the same ads for your own show over and over in the same series. If I wasn’t going to listen to the British scandals after hearing about it once, hearing it again and again won’t make it more effective! Sponsor ads are obviously different and I understand need to repeat those. Keep up the good work..Score: 5/5

You won’t be disappointed...Putting aside the content, which is magnificent, I just listen for Lindsay Graham’s narration. He could do this with a restaurant menu and make it the most interesting story you’ve ever heard. You can really appreciate Lindsay or others (e.g Jonathon Aris) once you’ve watched or heard mediocre doco’s and podcasts. And though the podcasts are American based, they resonate. This is because they can, may or have affected everyone. No one is immune from such scandals so they serve as good warnings ... or indicators..Score: 5/5

Introducing: Operator

During the 1-900 number craze of the Nineties, one company provided the vast majority of phone sex. American Telnet was an empire founded by the man who called himself “The Telephone Pimp.” He ran the company “like General Motors” and got filthy rich doing it. But for the (mostly) women who answered the calls and delivered fantasies 24-7, it was a different story. The powerful stigma against sex work was always lurking just beneath the surface, until it threatened to tear apart the whole company. Hosted by Tina Horn (Why Are People Into That?), OPERATOR is an eight-part series about big ambitions, Shakespearean-level corporate backstabbing, men and women at the cutting edge of a technological revolution...and on the front lines of a sexual one.Listen to Operator at Privacy Policy at and California Privacy Notice at
