Few things in my life feel simultaneously important / interesting / understandable / thoughtful / poignant / sad / amusing / thoughtful / valuable . . . . . Revisionist History is one of those wonderful things. M.G. has way of viewing the world and seeing patterns and relationships that to me feel important and valuable and, unfortunately, his way, his skill, his vision seems rather unique/rare. The world feels like a better place because of Mr. Gladwellâs observations. It seems likely that somewhere his observations are catalyzing great change, inner personal transformations and grand revisions of existing/accepted societal norms. Revisionist History is truly a force for great good in the world, all the while tickling the brain/soul, and it feels very good.
I have enjoyed the podcast and looked forward to Season 2. The first episode, unfortunately, did not start as I had hoped. As a golfer I felt episode 1, season 2 was framed from a biased perspective.
Just listen ð
I really love this podcast and Gladwell's story telling ability. However be warned there is a clear liberal bias present in some of the stories. Notably the fantastic story of a mennonite pastor in generous orthodoxy is almost ruined by his endless repetition and derision of rich white men at Princeton that seemingly goes nowhere. If Gladwell focussed solely on his story this would be terrific, however he lets his bias and opinions occasionally lapse into the story, making some of the podcast just like his biased New Yorker columns. Overall would recommend just understand the bias and take it for what it is.
While the information is quite interesting, the delivery could use A LOT of work.
Lets my history/information hungry brain graze on facts, fictions and everything in between. Thank you, Mr. Gladwell!
This is a great series that anyone, friends, a couple, teens, wanting to learn should listen to. Educate yourself
Malcolm Gladwell is an even better podcast writer and presenter then he is a book author. And that's saying something. His voice is perfect. His tone is impassioned. Listening to him unravel stories is mind opening.
Great investigative reporting that makes you look at history from a new perspective.
Malcolm Gladwell is a national treasure!!
I like how he presents something new and interesting in every episode
Malcolm Gladwell would be one of the three people I would invite to a meal if posed the oft asked question..."If you could break bread with just three people, alive or dead....". The guest list would read: Jesus, Gladwell and I'm keeping the third seat open for now. His podcast, just like his books and articles are thought provoking, interesting and fair. As a veteran, conservative and a capitalist, I usually have strong opinions on many issues. This podcast helps me to consider many sides to every question. I love it. Bring it on M.G.
5/5, 5/5, 5/5.
One of the best pods ever made
Keen. Delightful. Compassionate.
An outstanding listen.
Very straightforward and easy to understand while also compelling
Everyone always says we should learn from our past. This review of events forgotten or misinterpreted really brings those lessons to life!
I thoroughly enjoy Malcolm Gladwell's work. This series is as good as anything I've ever heard him do. Thank you, Malcolm. I always learn something.
Interesting, but listen with a critical ear. Most subjects are not based wholly on facts, a lot a half truths.
I thought Gladwell was alright until he made that terrible episode about golf. Don't hate bro.
Enjoying MG's perspective thus far.
Extremely one sided

Thank you for working so diligently to inform us. I appreciate your work so very much. I agree that there is really just one big idea.
Entertaining way to learn something you didn't know!
The depth and thoughtfulness of the episodes topic is just amazing. They even draw in and interest my 12 year old son. Anyone who has a 12 year old knows how hard that is to do with serious topics. Thanks for these ð
Malcolm revisits things in such interesting ways he has renewed what my friends and I talk about. It's relevant to me, my life, and is enthralling. A great story teller, social researcher and scientist of our times. Much appreciated!
Malcolm Gladwell is a master of the intersection between storytelling and investigative journalism. He leads us on a delightful romp through events and subjects we might have previously considered uninteresting. Critical analysis combined with his unique perspective shine a light on "false news", "respected institutions", interpersonal communication, and more. Unexpected yet understandable twists and turns abound. Even the hated commercials are tolerable. Revisionist History is a reason to learn how to download podcasts. This history is a pleasure! Malcolm is a treasure!
Excelente author and even better podcaster
This guy just kind of whines, and his voice is obnoxious
If you are extreme leftist this is your guy
Just awesome. I am glued to the cast and once they are finished, I am ready for the next one.
So smart and well done. A real pleasure to listen to.
Great explorations of relevant topics.
Can't recommend enough.
This podcast is amazing. I enjoying hearing the quiet, every day stories and how they change he world they are from.
MG shares his research in well-crafted story form. He has views for miles. The stories are unique and the views are creatively uncomplicated.
I Like the stories and the host. Interesting content.
Too often Gladwell use the faulty logic to come to his conclusions. Just Google the phrase "logical fallacies " and you will discover that this show demonstrates nearly all of them. It's a pity, because we all know that Malcolm is gripping entertainer. Too bad he is a poor journalist.
I wish you were in the car with me to continue the discussion.
The first episode of season two was about rich people getting ridiculous tax breaks. Nothing new but he made it interesting. The second episode is the best podcast I've ever heard. Go listen.
I love a podcast that makes you think. And I hate golf.
