If there is a better podcast, please tell me what it is. Gladwell is a treasure.
I love how Malcolm thinks, how he writes, and even how he speaks. Lots of "Whaaa??!" reactions to the material presented. Can't wait for the next episode.
Lots of important issues and historical events are swayed and not accurately portrayed due to the extreme biases of the writers and host.
I thought each episode would just tell a simple story but Gladwell relates each story to a greater concept. It gets you to look at the world through a different lens and see how moments in history have greater ramifications. Gladwell is a great story teller!
This is an awesome podcast. Gladwell is so great at picking an interesting topic and then giving us the perspective we never thought we wanted to know. Itâs part story, part fact, and all gold!
If youâre a democrat youâll love this. If not, he alienates you.
One of my favortie Podcasts!
I could listen to Malcom gladwell speak all day long. His voice is just the icing on the cake though as this podcast is very interesting and thought provoking. You will find yourself sharing with friends and family what you learned!
I listen to alot of Podcasts, and just recently started, and finished this one. It is superb!!! I started binge listening and thought the episodes were so great, that I ended up listening to everything out there in about a week. I hope there are more episodes to come. If you want to hear a commentary on something that happened in history, but can also tie into something currently happening, I highly reccomend this podcast. The three part miniseries on higher education was my favorite. Give it a listen, you won't be sorry!
Malcolm makes history interesting, fun, and real. The podcast is high quality. I feel like he is fair, though he is fine to bring in his bias, which makes it more fun because he really challenges the status quo in a way you can agree with or not. If you listen to one podcast this year, pick this one!!!
Very well done.
yes, I do hate golf now (never liked it but VERY vocal now). Malcolm is a terrific journalist. He investigates and digests subjects very thoroughly allowing all parties to contribute. He is very much an "underdog protector" but sometimes can spin VERY unorthodoxally. Highly recommend
There may not be a better listen out there-this is seriously good listening. Please keep them rolling!
A friend recommended this to me and it took me one or two podcasts before I was really captivated. He covers a wide range of topics which switches it up enough to keep it interesting.
Love Malcolm Gladwellâs work and just found this podcast. Love it.
I just found this podcast and am binging. Excellent, thought-provoking, everyone must hear this.
Stop telling us how to think and it will be great. Just give us the info and be a bit more objective.
The best !
Malcolm is a great storyteller and ends up connecting very different stories in a beautiful, meaningful way. I leave every episode thinking deeply about the subject.
Great podcast! Always thought provoking.
I really enjoyed the King of Tears episode. I know a lot of old trucks driven by old grandpas where George Jones was the only tape in the tape deck.
Best podcast I've listened to. It has truly taught me that there's more than what meets the eye in life, and that there is likely more behind something than previously reckoned.
The subtle intentionality combined with the careful attention to detail is classic Malcolm Gladwell. What a treat to be unpacked on my commute. Thank you for putting together a great team and producing a quality product.
I was skeptical when I downloaded my first few podcasts to listen to while commuting, but found myself hooked on Malcomâs abilities as a story teller. One of my favorites.
This podcast is absolutely wonderful. The depth of investigation on each individual subject is fascinating. I appreciate how well that information is then broadened to larger ideas again and again. I feel like Iâm rambling, but if you are reading this review and you like to think... Just go listen. Youâll understand.
I am delighted to report that the second season of Revisionist History has fully lived up to the first outstanding season. Malcolm Gladwell sure knows how to tell a significant story, in the most engaging possible way!I've now listened to all 10 podcasts of the first season, and they are terrific -- especially the three episodes on (unequal) education and the final podcast on the satire paradox. Gladwell brings original and insightful perspectives to bear in recasting our understanding of critical contemporary issues. I dearly hope there will be many more seasons to come.
The smartest and most thought provoking series of podcasts Iâve ever encountered
Iâm a physician, trained at the start of âcritical thinkingâ- WHY we do things and EVIDENCE for doing things. Bravo to Malcolm for broadening my critical thinking to BELIEF systems; and presented in a way that is fascinating and intriguing!
Interesting and entertaining
This podcast is informative and educational and also entertaining. Malcom Gladwell is smart and interesting and just right on!
Really love this podcast. I just discovered it a few weeks ago and have already almost made it through both seasons. I already canât wait for more episodes.
The episodes on education and golf were fantastic. I did not think my disdain for the sport of golf could grow any deeper until I listened to that episode. Keep it up Malcolm and co!
If you listen to podcasts, this show is an absolute MUST subscribe. Every single episode is on a level completely unparalleled by anything else in podcastdom. I routinely have passionate conversations with friends about which episodes we enjoyed most.
Great great great awesome podcast
Thoughtful, insightful, meaningful.Appreciate the wealth of knowledge and the truth being told in each story.
I'm probably half way through all episodes and love them all. Favorites so far are Food Fight, My Little Hundred Million, Blame Game, and The Big Man Can't Shoot. Terrific.
I love this podcast...it had me an Generous Orthodoxy. Thank you!
I find myself picking through episodes like one might pick through a basket of spoiled and ripe fruit to find the good piece. When it's good it's great- when it is bad it is so very bad that it almost negates the good.
Iâve listened through the first season of this podcast and Iâm excited to now binge the second. Every episode has shifted my worldview in one slight way or another. I find myself rewinding the pod to relisten or writing down some of the dialogue to implement in my own life later. I explain the concepts I learn to friends and family. Iâve found ties to my family, career, faith, gender, and political views. I love how, in the midst of learning about history, the same historical episode shifts to present day society and I see a problem explained in a new way. Brilliant. Give this a listen and learn. Grow. Gladwell is someone I would love to have over for a lengthy dinner chat, but for now his podcast will have to do.
Thank you all at Revisonist History! Howard Zinn would be a big fan!BlessingsSuzi
What I've heard so far is amazing. Incredibly incisive -- gets right to the heart of issues no one is talking about.
I started with the "Carlos Doesn't Remember" episode. It may be the most powerful and tragic podcast I have ever listened to. Gladwell does a great job of capturing the challenges the impoverished face, even with "perceived opportunities".I am now making my way through the other episodes, but have gone back to that one on several ocassions.
Revisionist History is a very interesting podcast. I learn new things while being entertained.
Gladwell is the ultimate contrarian. Making connections that most of us look past, deep diving into subjects and situations that most have never heard of. Brilliant!
Much of history is told through the lives, experiences, recolections and recordings of not only men, but white men. We believe what we want to believe far more often than believing what is true. Revisionist History gives us the details that are often or usually left out. History dictates the present and the future. Yet there is still so much history to uncover, still so much truth to be told. Thankfully Malcom has decided to be to tell it. Now, if only enough of us would listen!
After listening to this entire series I'm having trouble finding anything remotely as good. Unique and engaging subject matter delivered by an outstanding storyteller
I listen to way too many podcast about business, entrepreneurship, finance, etc. In short, I continuously am learning about all aspects of capitalism. Mr. Gladwell provides me with a more egalitarian perspective that Iâd miss otherwise. Thank you
