A newspaper or magazine giving prominence to scandalous stories or gossip.‘She found herself mentioned in that notorious scandal sheet!’
Scandal Sheets was the term given to newspapers publishing salacious tidbits in the early 20th century. But the concept of reporting on society’s scandals wasn’t new–as early as 1681, British newspapers were publishing the comings and goings of the upper crust.
Scandal Sheets is a podcast devoted to exposing the scandals of history…and the people and places associated with it. Every week we venture into the past to discover a shocking tale of sex, crime, divorce, or political shenanigans.
Episodes can be found on Apple Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Castbox, and other fine podcast repositories. You can follow us on Facebook and Instagram pages for more information on the each week’s subject along with exclusive content such as photos and anecdotes.
Caroline and Adrienne are the hosts of Scandal Sheets. They are united in their love for architectural history, booze, and cats.
Caroline is an architectural historian by trade, but deep in her heart, she’s a history nerd. Her fascination with history began at a young age, where she was immediately drawn to the lives of historical women. She studied at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina where she majored in historic preservation and minored in history. She is currently pursuing a MFA in Architectural History from the Savannah College of Art and Design. When she’s not working, traveling, or studying, she reads voraciously and pretends she is British.
Adrienne is an architectural designer with a focus in historic preservation. She knew from an early age that she wanted to be an architect, but following her graduation from Clemson University, her interest in historic preservation led her to pursue a master’s degree in the field from the joint program at Clemson University and the College of Charleston. She enjoys traveling the world and attending local arts performances.
Both ladies live in balmy Charleston, South Carolina which is the epicenter for historic preservation in the US. It’s also overrun by tourists and may be sinking into the ocean, but hey…there’s always happy hour to dispel our gloom.
