Season One:

In an effort to uncover where corruption in American politics starts, The Probe goes deep inside an average high school student body presidential election. Listen as hosts Lisa Burton and Mary Beth Smith meet the candidates and their families, speculate on their motives for running, and unmask all the nasty aspects of running for office at any level.


Episode 4

Two weeks out from the big debate, SCANDAL rocks the FDRHS presidential election. One candidate bungled so badly their battle for student body glory may be toast. The tension couldn't be higher in The Probe studio, but with the help of some experts, Lisa and Mary Beth get to the bottom of the blunder as well as figuring out what exactly goes on at the home and in the mind of the apparent front-runner, Staci Kramer.
