The Royals, The Truth and $$$ - plus SLAPPS! | Ep.79 | The Scandal Mongers Podcast

Andrew and Phil go where many royal reporters fear to tread, to reveal the shocking sexual allegations and dirty financial dealings that are alleged to lie behind the tangled and scandalous lives of numerous famous royal names.


What has Andrew found our about the secret lives of the royals as he researched his numerous books?


Improving access to information about the rich and powerful - especially the British royal family - is a theme of this podcast, and so we are keen to learn more about the ways that oligarchs, corporations and Princes seek to prevent reporters and writes doing their jobs. David Hooper, one of London’s top lawyers, joins us to discuss the scandalous use of so-called SLAPPs - law suits meant to intimidate journalists and restrict their access to the truth.

Nazis & The Holocaust - on British Soil! | Ep.77 | The Scandal Mongers Podcast
JUN 9, 2024
Nazis & The Holocaust - on British Soil! | Ep.77 | The Scandal Mongers Podcast

This week author and broadcaster Martin Bright joins Andrew and Phil to discuss what he believe is a little known but massive wartime cover up. As a new official report is due on the extent of Nazi crimes in the occupied Channel Islands during WW2, Martin believes that the suffering of Jewish and other prisoners on the islands has been hidden for many decades - partly because of official embarrassment at the amount of collaboration there.


In his book END OF THE BEGINNING Phil has written about another aspect of this story - the deportation of Jews from these British islands to Nazi death camps.

Aristos, Adultery and Fascism - with Anne de Courcy | Ep.76 | The Scandal Mongers Podcast

Aristos, Adultery and Fascism - with Anne de Courcy | Ep.76 | The Scandal Mongers Podcast

The human dynamo that is Anne de Courcy returns to the podcast by popular demand after her brilliant interview about Princess Margaret and Tony Snowdon. This week she is speaking about one of her most successful books ‘The Viceroy’s Daughters’, the saga of Lord Curzon and his three talented, beautiful but often wayward daughters at the pinnacle of British and imperial high society in the first half of the 20th Century.


Overlapping love affairs, dalliances with dangerous young men and campaigning alongside the most charismatic politician of the age, Oswald Mosley, the former socialist turned fascist leader of Britain’s ‘Black Shirts’ in the 1930s - this is a story with everything and an incredible window into a glittering but also menacing world of privilege, power and decadence.

Vladimir Putin - The Inside Story Of A Tyrant | Ep.75 | The Scandal Mongers Podcast

This week we are lucky enough to speak with one of the most celebrated political writers of our age - Peter Pomerantsev, a former TV colleague of our Phil Craig. Peter had a ring side seat in Moscow for the rise of Putin and now advises leading politicians in Europe and the USA.


Born in the Soviet Union, and now a Senior Fellow at the Institute of Global Affairs at the London School of Economics, Peter has written two hugely influential books about the modern Russian state and how it exploits disinformation and propaganda to oppress and threaten its own people and its neighbours: Nothing Is True and Everything Is Possible (2014) and This Is Not Propaganda (2019).


His latest book, How to Win an Information War: The Propagandist Who Outwitted Hitler (2024), is about Sefton Delmer, a British propagandist of the Second World War.
