Bunga Bunga

Silvio Berlusconi was a charismatic multi-millionaire real-estate mogul who upended the Italian political order and hypnotized an entire nation. He was one of the longest-serving prime ministers of one of the world’s wealthiest countries, until he was brought down by three powerful women - and two words: “Bunga Bunga.” From Wondery, the makers of Dirty John and The Shrink Next Door, and hosted by comedian Whitney Cummings, “Bunga Bunga” is an eight part series on the incredible true story of the rise and fall of Silvio Berlusconi, told with Whitney’s signature wit and style.

    Why Berlusconi Is Still an Icon | 9

    Nearly a decade after his fall from grace, Silvio is back on the political scene and back on the dating scene, too. In this special episode, Barbie Nadeau speaks with the hosts of Wondery’s show “Even the Rich” about Silvio’s complicated legacy, his fight against COVID-19, and why there’s good reason to believe he wears a corset.

    What to Listen to Next: Even the Rich

    Finished Bunga Bunga and in need of a new podcast? Check out Wondery's Even the Rich. Co-hosts Brooke and Aricia tell stories about some of the greatest family dynasties in history, from the Versaces, to the Royals, and most recently, the Kennedys.

    When Ted Kennedy lost control of his car and ended up in the river on Chappaquiddick Island, he could never have imagined that his entire political career would hang in the balance. But the tragic incident that took the life of his assistant Mary Jo, and his hazy account to authorities called into question his actions that night. Ultimately, this tragedy threw Ted’s presidential ambitions by the wayside and was forever etched into the history of the Kennedy family. Listen to the latest season of Even the Rich today: wondery.fm/bungabungaETR.

    All Silvio, All The Time | 4

    It’s been five years since Silvio’s first term in office ended, and he’s ready for a comeback. While Silvio creates his own glossy brochure to tell voters of his idyllic life, a late-night talk show host is pulling back the curtain. He wants to answer a question that has been dogging Silvio his entire career: “Silvio, where did you get all this money?!” The answer causes a sensation. (Hint: it involves the Mafia.) But is this revelation enough to stop Silvio from winning a second time?
