Malcom Gladwell weaves interesting angles around unheard history. He is a storyteller, and I look forward to season 2.
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.
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.
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.
My little brain can barely keep up with the information from Mr. Gladwell. His podcasts are good exercise!
Thought provoking and smart...love this show. Hope it comes back!
One of the best podcasts!
Please tell me there are more episodes coming!
He even sings a bit in it!
I hope this continues, for everyone's sake.
Mr. Gladwell as always, brings an interesting & perspicacious view of the subject on hand !Excellent & BRAVO
Excellent podcast. Well written, and well researched. I can't wait for season two! If there's one. ðð
Gladwell provides an accessible, insightful closer look at the people and events of our societies, and helps us make sense of it all.
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!
love the topics that are covered and they're covered in a way no one else does
Amazing series of podcasts - so good I finished in less than a week. Would love more!
This podcast literally changed my worldview
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.
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.
This podcast offers so many different perspectives on historical moments and experiences!
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.
As usual, Gladwell does amazing work. PLEASE CONTINUE THIS ENDEAVOR!
Very interesting and fresh.
Very thoughtful, enlightening, educational, interesting, maddening. Thought provoking, thoroughly researched, carefully presented. Absolutely captivating. Worth multiple listens.
I can't get enough of these. Please continue making!
Thought provoking and interesting. Genuinely one of the best podcasts I've ever listened to.
I enjoyed every moment listening to these podcasts.
This is one of the most entertaining and informative podcasts i've ever heard. Have been checking and looking for months for news of debut of Season 2. WHEN?????
Please... more... when....
Can't wait for the next one. Always thought provoking and entertaining.
I wish EVERYONE in this country could listen to these together and have an informed discussion afterwards. If only...
The best author and the best storyteller! I absolutely love his style - always unexpected and interesting facts about social issues
I have obsessively and obnoxiously been telling everyone to listen to this podcast. So many interesting topics that I am so happy to be learning about.
So insightful and thought-provoking. I could never tire of it.
I'm only three episodes in, and I already feel like I've learned so much. PLEASE LISTEN to this podcast!
This was an amazing podcast. I was compelled to tell other people about the thoughts and facts from each one of these masterfully crafted episodes. Download now. Do not delay.
I love the podcast! Everyone should give it a try.
It's amazing how he does so little with so much.
Thought provoking at every level
A great and very interesting podcast.
This is a great podcast. I would pay for this one. Love that I get it for free.
Enjoyable and thought provoking
Good & well covered topics by Mr Gladwell
The higher education episodes are incredible.
Excellent. The best set of podcast I've ever heard.
Amazing series of podcasts! Always insightful and thought-provoking. The piece about Carlos was heart-wrenching... We need more podcasts like this in these times. I hope there will be a 2017 season...
His first season was the best podcast series I've ever listened to and I'm very excited for more!
The quality of content is as high as his books, which is saying something. Please keep it up!
