Description

Revisionist History is Malcolm Gladwell's journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood. Every episode re-examines something from the past—an event, a person, an idea, even a song—and asks whether we got it right the first time. From Pushkin Industries. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.

I'm sure if a woman with some integrity and isn't completely corrupt ran for us president she might win. don't blame her losing on her gender it was her actions.

Malcolm is the best modern thinker, thought provoking guy alive today. IMO of course

I think Malcolm grossly over values specificity and undervalues the artistic value of mild abstraction in lyrics. While attempting to pass those value estimates off as somehow objective. The beautiful thing about music and lyrics is that you can attach your own meaning to them. I don't necessarily have to know what Mick or Keith were specifically referring to.

Jeez. This is one of my favorite podcasts so far, but nothing has made me less interested in it than this empty, self-aggrandizing ad.

I work at a conservative Christian University and I would never tell my gay students to just leave, because the old white Christians don't really care if they leave. There will just be other white Christian students to take their place, and make the old white men church body will be happy. Schools should be welcoming to all, willing to call out injustices, and change because diversity is the essence of life and future of our ever evolving country. If those black students leave Princeton, there will just be other white guys (future old white millionaire men) to take their place, happy that the school is homogeneous.

Malcolm is obviously one sided on this topic, probably due to Canadian perspective. Fails to mention problem of criminal activity crossing border in both directions. Also fails to note migrants from central America that don't circular migrate. It's on Congress to fix immigration, but nobody wants to be unpopular. All Americans should thank Trump for bringing the topic to the fore front. whether you like his approach or not, the discussion is long overdue.
