Malcolm, love this podcast so much. I can’t even articulate how much I love it. But one thing, darling. We need you to air more episodes...on the double. I can’t get enough of creating an opinion in the first 5 minutes just to have that opinion walked back by your thought process. You’re brilliant, darling. You truly are. Please supply us fiends with more of your research. Signed, greatly appreciative listener.

Absolutely eye opening, beautiful and well spoken.

This is the best podcast I’ve found yet (listening for four years to various podcasts). I have but one complaint: not enough episodes!! I listened to 3 seasons in 3 weeks!! Not a bad episode in one!! Excellent! Thank you Mr. Gladwell! Give us more!!

More Episodes?!

I binge listened all of these and am very hopeful that more are coming! This is my favorite podcast to recommend to friends and family (and not just because I’m a Celtics fan)! Thank you for the fun and informative content! Serious upgrade to any commuter’s morning :)

It's up to all of us to find out the truth for ourselves. I Iove how this podcast challenges us to look at things we take for granted and think more critically about the world around us. Fabulous job.

Gladwell is a master storyteller, and is exploring some extremely intriguing stories. His topics are not only interesting, but have gotten me to think about how his analysis and conclusions apply to things I am doing.

Love it

I am a loyal podcast listener. To me, television is so “yesterday”. Podcasts are where its at - and I am hooked on Mr. Gladwell’s interpretation of historical events. His unique perspective is riveting and thought provoking. Keep up the good work!!

Love everything by Malcolm Gladwell!

This series is so good, every episode so far has been thought provoking and enlightening. My favorite so far are the 3-Part series on American higher ed in season 1. Who needs TV when you have this podcast?!

I appreciate how Malcolm brings out my slight Democrat within my Republican kind soul and body! I thoroughly enjoy how these podcasts never stray from presenting facts without trying to force you to believe a certain way. Excellent work!

Great stories but...

by Val4598 on Oct 10, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

The one line teaser for each episode often provides no information on the subject of the podcast. When I’m scrolling through possibilities of what to listen to on my daily runs, I pick something I know I want to learn more about so I often scroll past revisionist history to other podcasts.


by Rock Stety on Oct 09, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Some episodes are fantastic. They're thought provoking and entertaining, but sometimes it's as if Gladwell is willingly ignoring evidence or pushing his own political views rather than actually reviewing the history.

Excellent storytelling, simple format, riveting stories. Just a well done podcast all around.

I believe without memories there is no history and the lessons of history. I believe stories are wonderful for me to remember. This is a lesson rich collection of stories. Thank youJim

Hate golf

by TigerTraditions on Oct 06, 2018
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

Mr Gladwell goes on and on about how he hates golf and that he is certain that when he is finished everyone who listens to his opinion will hate it too. He portrays golf as a game for the rich that destroys the environment all the while neglecting to mention that there are thousands of public courses and probably hundreds of thousands of people who play exclusively on public courses. MANY of these people are senior citizens who find an enormous amount of comradely and sense of community through the game of golf. Golf is not a game just for the rich. That is such a narrow minded opinion. Most public courses receive community support and depend largely of rainfall for their water source. These courses are not raping the land as Mr Gladwell insinuates. They are enriching the lives of the people who live in those communities and providing much needed affordable opportunities for our senior citizens to stay active and engaged in life. In the future I hope Mr Gladwell limits his topics to things he fully understands.

He takes extraordinarily small samples and extrapolates on them to an unacceptable degree for a supposedly respected journalist.

Going downhill

by BlueArt882728 on Oct 02, 2018
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Fantastic year one, forgettable year two. Downright bad year three. I hate to say it as I’m a huge fan but this season was slow and heavy on the editorial. He’s lost the art of telling a story in this season and feels more like he’s pushing an agenda.

The Best

by J Beers on Oct 02, 2018

Gladwell is a master story teller with the ability to link things together you probably have not thought about. I binge listened to his 3 seasons in a week through a range of topics that really opened my mind. Loved his books - this is better.

Malcolm Gladwell’s voice is what I want my internal monologue to sound like and his ideas constantly change my way of thinking. If Gladwell started a cult, I just might join it. This is the podcast I most recommend to others.

Heads of States?

Love the content, variety, and story telling. Great balance of fact, human interest, candid opinion, and even humor. Would love to hear your take on some of the early female heads of state as it relates to influence, leadership, compromise, persistence... or the CIA.

Want to hear a whiny Canadian complain about what is wrong with America? Do you like lopsided “reporting” by a sarcastic pseudo-intellect? Do you like half-truths and cherry-picked details delivered by an obnoxious and disagreeable man? Here you go.

I love how Season 3 starts with Malcolm asking "Did you miss me? D'you wanna hear my voice?" hahaha YES! I DID AND I DO!! I love everything about this podcast, it's so interesting and utterly captivating. I love how I have a new perspective on life after every episode. And yes, I even love Malcolm's insanely pleasant voice :P Would recommened to any human.

Thank You

This podcast is incredibly thought provoking, and for me personally, powerfully life-altering. Gladwell is unapologetic while he effectively shows how poorly we understand what is happening in the present and how damaging that can be to society, especially the vulnerable. However, he doesn’t simply point out what you might argue are obvious lessons learned from the past, because we are still blind to these truths, but he also very directly suggests actions to correct our mistakes. Couldn’t suggest this more whole-heartedly.
