British scandals change the course of history. They bring down governments, overthrow the rich, and cause the mighty to fall. And in the end, they’re all about power. Wondery presents: British Scandal, a new podcast hosted by Alice Levine & Matt Forde. The premiere season takes you into the sinister world of Russian politics and a killer scandal that shook all of Britain. When former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko is found dead by poisoning in London, it throws Britain -- and all of Europe -- into political controversy. But when the murderer is a rich and powerful foreign state, how far will the British government go? Listen to British Scandal at wondery.fm/BS_DyingForSex.
