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. Gladwell’s 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.

Great informative stories

by Nickmk on Jun 27, 2017
Rating: ★★★★☆

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.

Cant handle how condescending he is!

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.

Excellent break from the common podcast

by CaleP1 on Jun 26, 2017

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.

Interesting, but listen with a critical ear. Most subjects are not based wholly on facts, a lot a half truths.

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 😀

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!

Entertaining bad journalism

by Azdren on Jun 24, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

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.
