Thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. Please do another season.
Thank you Malcolm!
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.
Gladwell is fun to listen to in any context. He has a great style and covers very interesting topics.
Malcolm Gladwell is simply brilliant. He is thought provoking and so fun to listen to!
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.
Whether it's books or podcasts, you can never get enough Malcolm Gladwell. This podcast is a treasure.
I very much enjoy Malcolm Gladwell's work. I like intellectual podcasts that stimulate thinking. These episodes did not disappoint. I hope he does more. And really well produced! Kudos!
Very insightful podcast on some great topics. Would love to hear another season soon.
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.
Very diverse topics discussed on each episode. Each episode is done very well.
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 listen. I learn. I wonder. I'm encouraged.
Just listen. He's great.
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!
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 enjoyableâlike having a delicious gourmet meal. I am enriched by this podcast and wish they came more frequently! Thank you!
A wonderful podcast.
Makes me feel like i read a book.
This is such a thoughtful and interesting listen. Short (I wish they were longer!) and my 16 and 13 year old are also rapt when I play these podcasts. Huge fan of Mr. Glad well and I love this format as well. Please give us MORE!!
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!
Love this podcast. Friend of my suggested it and I can't stop listening to it eversince.
Very insightful and thought provoking. He hits it out of the park with this one. I wish everyone would listen to it.
Topics that seemed ho-hum at first became fascinating when examined in such depth by Malcolm Gladwell. Hope there are more episodes on the way!
Truly a refreshing find, can't wait for future episodes.
Glad a friend showed me this pod!!
I love listening to Malcom Gladwell talk. It doesn't matter what subject or story is being discussed, it's always done with passion, curiousity, and a unique perspective.
I just binged the entire first season in one go. It's amazing.
Gives you lots to think about.Interesting connections!
But I'm not that impressed. My single star is just in opposition to the insane number of sheeple 5/5 reviews
Interesting, entertaining, and always thoughtful. Can't wait for season 2.
I listen to a lot of podcasts. This one is really thought provoking and I really enjoy it.
This and Hardcore History are probably my two favorite podcasts. Highly recommend. Wish there were more episodes
Worth the bing.
Well done. Much enjoyed.
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.
Malcolm gives a humble view into the world and ways we can improve it.
after i hooked my son up to Gladwell's written work, he hooked me up with this Gladwell podcast. It makes my business travel fly by! keep up the great work!thanks...Danny
Filled with great stories and re-evaluations of historical happenings.
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.
Love this podcast, can't get enough!!!
I am addicted to this podcast. Malcolm Gladwell is a natural born story teller who is able to weave fascinatingstories from history together and somehow make them relevant, timeless and poignant.
Best podcast I've heard in a long time. Thoughtful, thorough and compassionate.
Should be required listening
