American Scandal

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.

    This episode is brought to you by Wondery in partnership with National Geographic in anticipation of their new series, The Hot Zone. The three-night limited series is inspired by true events surrounding the origins of the Ebola virus and its arrival on US soil in 1989. That year, the killer virus suddenly appeared in monkeys in a scientific research lab in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Lieutenant Colonel Nancy Jaax, a heroic U.S. Army scientist, puts her life on the line to head off the outbreak before it spreads to the human population.

    In this episode, Julianna Margulies, the Golden Globe and Emmy award winning actor, shares what it was like to play Dr. Nancy Jaax and why she thinks it's important to tell the stories of epidemics — and the people on the front lines who fight them. We’re also joined by Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders, executive producers and showrunners of The Hot Zone.
