Description

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.

It’s been five years since Silvio’s first term in office ended, and he’s ready for a comeback.

Lady Bird Johnson’s audio diaries reveal how one vastly underestimated woman navigated the power, politics and polarization of her time to become arguably one of the most influential first ladies in history. From ABC News, makers of the hit series “The Dropout” and the award-winning daily news podcast “Start Here,” comes “In Plain Sight: Lady Bird Johnson” – an eight-part series told in the former first lady's own words.
A charismatic Russian woman arrives in the US on a mission to improve relations between the two countries, and she soon makes some powerful friends. But who is Maria Butina? And who is she working for? As Maria gets closer to the rich and connected she also attracts the attention of the FBI. In the politically charged world of US-Russia relations, everyone has secrets and almost nothing is what it seems. From Wondery, the makers of The Shrink Next Door and Dr. Death comes SPY AFFAIR a story about deception, appearances and betrayal. Hosted by Celia Aniskovich.Listen today at wondery.fm/SA_BungaBunga

Theme song sounds a whole lot like Jungle Book's I Wanna Be Like You. See? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FOTZJ8EFgpk

This series should have ended at episode 5. it was totally dragged over to advertise. Good but pump on the breaks with the ads, guys. They're too many.

Great story. Puts Trump in the shade. Confirms again we are on average who we elect.

I've heard the punchline differently, which I think is better... When the man chooses death, the tribe leader claps his hands and shouts "Death... By Bunga Bunga!"
