“From near misses to total screw-ups, "Foiled" talks about failed assassination plots from throughout history!”


History True Crime Historical Events Crime & Mystery Politics


From Julius Caesar to the Kennedys, successful assassinations have played a significant role in the course of human civilization. This show isn't about those. Instead, we're looking at failed assassination attempts from throughout history. First, we go into the life of the would-be-victim, and then introduce the person (or people) who wanted them dead. Then we go into the plot and what ultimately went wrong. A typical episode closes out with a brief story of the victim's life after the assassination attempt and how history may have been different if it had succeeded. From near misses to disastrous blunders, these would-be assassinations often still made a major impact.
