Eye opening, heartbreaking and lovely. What amazing stories and points of view shared in the few episodes I have listened to. Hindsight is 20/20 they say, but we need to do more research on the past so we can do better now and for the future.
I enjoyed every episode of Season 1 and 2.
Everyone should listen to this podcast. It is a superior podcast, loaded with great information, easy to listen to, a great teaching tool, and so much more. I cannot wait for Season 3.
Both reports are fact based and believable and thoroughly analyzed in clear language. Now more than ever we need truths we can hold on to. Mr. Gladwell, Thank you!
Keep doing this Podcast. It is making me look at things I thought I knew differently.
Great great great
Your content is undeniably the best podcast that stimulate and thought challenging. Keep it coming...
I am so grateful to have access to this awesome podcast for free, I learn so much from every episode.
I love the probing questioning of perceived beliefs and modes of operation. Love it.
Fascinating, in-depth, wonderfully narrated!
Love his books, his articles in The New Yorker and now his podcast.
Eclectic and brilliant. A can't-miss podcast!
I donât bother to take the time to write reviews. This is the exception. It deserves it. This is a brilliant podcast and Iâve enjoyed every episode. I highly recommend checking it out.
Gladwell is a visionary (or, in this case, an incredible auditory) storyteller. I canât wait for the new season.
Should be required for all to help us not only learn history but learn to think.
This podcast takes a deeper look and offers alternative views on situations either forgotten or ignored. Although I donât 100% with all of Gladwells reviews I definitely respect them and appreciate the alternative approach. Definitely worth a listen from people coming from all walks of life.
Iâm so thankful for Malcolm Gladwell! Great subjects, interesting points and perfectly entertaining.. Iâve binged whole seasons and re-listened to past episodes!Makes me wonder why society doesnât improve when intelligent ideas and research provides simple alternative methods that would enhance so many aspects of all these various topics. Great podcast! Keep doing what ur doing Malcolm G. And hopefully you continue to inspire social changes!
The commentary invariably starts, circles around and about, down this by-way and that, only to return to the beginning. I have yet to be disappointed, or failed to come away marveling at my previous ignorance.
Awesome episode. The story resonated with me as it highlights some the educational disparities that exist among urban environments. America fails to acknowledge many of the socioeconomic barriers minorities experience while seeking upward mobility. I hope listeners were able to recognize that regardless of the individual, sometimes external factors can have a substantial influence on potential success.
Will there be more ? Thank you for all the insight. I love this podcast.
I have been a huge fan of Malcolm's books, and had know idea he did a podcast. This has been like Christmas listening to them. Excellent.
Malcolm takes about 5 minutes to communicate 1 simple thing with you. He just keeps repeating the same thing over and over like youâre a 5 year old.The concepts and theories he brings forward are somewhat interesting, but the conclusions he draws are over simplified with thin evidence. Canât say I feel more informed by having heard this stuff.
Couldn't imagine not having this as a part of my day. Keep up the great show and work.
Although i disagree with many of the broad strokes Mr. Gladwell paints society, if you are wealthy, white and privileged be prepared to get called out, i do find these very thought provoking. I especially enjoyed the âGenerous Orthodoxyâ episode.
I can not recommend this show more highly. Iâve read each of Gladwellâs books and every one entertained and educated me. His podcasts though take me to another level of conscious thought when you hear the voices of his interviewees along with his guest descriptions. Gladwellâs podcasts have made me cry, laugh and incredibly furious as we revisit the âtruthâ of certain âknown facts.â I also know they will inspire me to work to remedy some of the more egregious fallacies especially those highlighted by our obsession with the strong link theory in Ivy League education rather than recognizing that weak links are essential to our society and democracy.
This podcast is delightful and thought provoking. I keep checking back for the next season!
The more podcasts I hear the more I like this. This is the best, most informative, thoughtful, and entertaining podcasts I've found. More please.
Love this podcast! Keep up the amazing work.
I would have been much better educated if my schools had been filled with Gladwells. His voice is so soothing, so full of wisdom and, at the same time, forces you to look at stories from a perspective I didnât even know existed. Very Talmudic. Finished the last one last fall. I want more!!
