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 think we need to be careful when we start judging people's views on "others" based on today's standards. So Churchill didn't care for Indian's, well Gandhi was racist against black people. Let us not forget that he thought Indians were superior to blacks during his time in South Africa. He wrote to the British to make sure that Indians received a higher standing in South African society... Moral of the story everyone wants to think that they're better than somebody.

a couple of corrections, it wasn't a restaurant that had the offensive reference to Julia Gillard on the menu, it was at a Liberal party (Australia's conservative party) fundraiser. Also, Peter Slipper, the speaker who sent the sexist text messages, wasn't a member of Gillard's party, he was a Liberal MP amd was appointed speaker because numbers in the chamber were so tight that the government couldn't afford to lose a vote to the speakers chair. Worth getting these basic facts right in a history podcast.

It would appear that there is no more revisionist history. He did say he did advertise this broken record but I was at least hoping that revisionist history would continue

Pretty poor episode. Too much reaching too many holes in his arguments...

Listened to most of the first episode and looking forward to more from Malcolm! Even if I don't end up agreeing with him. This is beautifully produced. His voice is nice to listen to. And the writing is really good. I look forward to more. I have listened to many podcasts and I love his story telling and think this is one of the better ones I've heard so far!

Country music generally makes me want to vomit rather than cry. I have, however, been moved to tears by many rocks songs.

Why is this being falsely advertised as Revisionist History when clearly it is not. I didn't subscribe for this nonsense. This is clearly listener manipulation on your part Mr Gladwell. I expected better. A lot better.

David Pleym I don't think there is any more revisionist history. He did advertise that he would be going to this thing called broken record I was hoping that he would still continue revisionist history while doing broken record but it seems as if there is no more revisionist history such a big disappointment
