Malcom Gladwell - Storyteller Extraordinaire

by Taylor & Daryl - Kings of Pod on May 23, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Malcom Gladwell weaves interesting angles around unheard history. He is a storyteller, and I look forward to season 2.

I just binge-listened to them all.

When I'm doing the kind of work that doesn't take a lot of heavy thinking, I listen to podcasts and audiobooks. If it doesn't hold my interest and attention (subject, presentation, and delivery), then I'm on to the next one, after giving it a fair shot. That's why I'm surprised by some of these negative reviews on the first page. Is that all these people got out of the episodes -- nit picking his conclusions? It's one thing to disagree, but don't throw the baby out. Gladwell has a captivating way of taking an issue or a question and looking below the surface to illuminate points and facts you probably haven't considered. As a consequence, I believe one can gain understanding, empathy, and respect for an unconsidered point of view.

Very educational and well crafted

Typical Malcolm Gladwell. He makes you think and want to be better. This podcast is wonderful. I have listened to and loved his audiobooks. This is like them but better and sadly, shorter.

Every single one.

I listen to a lot of podcasts. And usually, even with ones I really like, I find that one episode or another is just not that interesting. I have to say that Malcolm Gladwell has a way of telling a story, about a painting in a museum or cafeteria food or Mennonites, or whatever, that grand you and will not let you go. I find that I keep thinking about what he has said long after hearing the podcast. My eyes have been opened about things I didn't even know that I cared about. You will too.

I love Revisionist History! First, Malcolm Gladwell is outstanding, he has the perfect voice, personality, nature; everything about him makes him perfect for this type of media. Second, the topics he covers are fascinating, all important and relevant to the events of today. I have been gifting Gladwell's books for years; now I am telling my friends & family to listen to these Podcasts! It is refreshing to hear an intelligent grown up speak the truth! These are not to be missed! I hope a second season is on it's way!

Arguably the best podcast to date

Malcolm Gladwell has a way with story telling. Each episode is captivating, eloquent, beautifully prepared, and paradigm-shifting. I feel more educated with every episode! Gladwell makes the information so easy to digest and understand. It feels like you actually get a proper view on the world when looking (or hearing) through the lens of Revisionist History.

A Must-Add to your podcast lineup!

Wow! What a great podcast. I love a podcast that stimulates my mind and gets me to thinking about a different point of view. I've only listened to four episodes, but I am thoroughly hooked. The in-depth coverage of the topic is outstanding, thorough and thought-provoking. Whether they are discussing the challenges of helping smart, brilliant kids from lower socioeconomic backgrounds to get to college "Carlos doesn't remember" or the concept of opening the door of opportunity for one outsider then closing it for all others "The lady vanishes"... this podcast has been instrumental in reminding me of my younger-self goals to get involved. Thank you, Malcolm.

Even when you disagree with the conclusions made in this podcast, you'll appreciate the strong opinions and how they're presented. I like smart people who disagree with me. This is a podcast that feels like that kind of experience.

I'm a Christ-follower, and although I believe differently than the host on many issues, I'm hooked on this podcast! He approaches past events with a scalpel instead of a hammer. He understands that nuanced stories win over news-worthy headlines. "Food for thought" is an understatement. "Feast for thought" is a spot on description.
