This podcast is one of my favorites. As he does in his books, Gladwell provides excellent research and insight that make us think about how we can improve the world.

Malcolm Gladwell really hits it out of the park. The depth and breadth of his subjects are covered as only he can. Easily my top podcast. Please hurry and release the next season!

I often thought I wasn't smart enough to truly enjoy Malcolm Gladwell, but this 10-part series is totally relatable. In particular, the three-part arc on higher education, will get you fired up and Malcolm's indignation feels justified. I hope he does another season and that the stories are just as varied and interesting as the first.

Entertaining and thought provoking

by Staniman on Apr 21, 2017

Malcom Gladwell et al make my morning commute both pass quickly and productively. The stories entertain, but to a point that leaves me considering the ideas the rest of the day, even if in the end I wonder about the unsaid and unexplored "other side". Even there I believe he succeeds: if he can get me to think about ideas deeply enough and long enough that I begin to wonder about points unsaid, then he has succeeded not only to make me see the ideas he explicitly states, but also in provoking deep thought in general about the idea. 40 minutes well spent.

Excellent Podcast

Introduced to this podcast via a psychology class, I have been incredibly impressed with the intellectual and provoking topics. These aren't the typical headlines and honestly some have been things I've never given much thought to before. Eye opening and incredibly enjoyable.

I love the passion and enthusiasm that Gladwell shows here, he doesn't hesitate to lay out his strong (and well argued) opinion on sometimes touchy subjects without coming across as brash, ignorant or irritating. It's rare to come across such a mixture of boldness, intelligence and strong moral courage. As a bonus, Gladwell's voice is very pleasant to listen to! Can't wait for the next season!

Thank God for Malcolm Gladwell!

When I read The Tipping Point, I knew this was the author I had been longing for. I have a voracious appetite for learning, but his style makes it so enjoyable—like having a delicious gourmet meal. I am enriched by this podcast and wish they came more frequently! Thank you!

If you enjoy Gladwells's other work, then you will certainly enjoy this podcast. I appreciate learning about a different perspective & this show thoroughly dives into the reality behind complex social constructs. Honestly, I really like Gladwell's earnest opinions and, more importantly, his ideas about how to improve things. Great listening, accessible approach to involved subject matter & thought-provoking content. Looking forward to more episodes!

Perfectly balanced between storytelling, thoughtful information, and powerful messages. Incredibly well done. Podcasts should aspire to be this thoroughly, staggeringly good.

...which sometimes aren't interesting and sometimes are. Actually feels like I'm-depth marketing for the books.

Malcolm's exploration of weak link vs strong link theory, and the broken model of higher education in America, is amazing.

This is one of the most outstanding podcasts, not only professional but also presenting a new take on topics we used to think we understood. Malcolm Gladwell surprises us with facts and tangents that turn us around. Entertaining, challenging and entirely human, his soft spoken voice digs into the heart of matters in unprecedented ways.

So good!
