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. 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.)

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!"

I so did not anticipate to improve my Italian vocabulary by listening to this podcast on Italian political corruption. I'm excited to see where this historic story goes, and practice my profane new vocab words. Thanks so much!
