Malcolm has been writing about race and policing for a very long time, going back to the killing of Amadou Diallo in 1999. Sometimes, it is useful to take a step back and consider policing in a broader context. Here we present a chapter from Malcolm's book David and Goliath, which includesan analysis of a riot in Northern Ireland in 1970. Many miles and many years away. About divisions of religion and class and not divisions of race. But the core questions to be asked in 1970 and 1999 and today are the same: if you have power, what does it mean to use it, and use it wisely? And what are the consequences if you don't? David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants was published in 2013 by Little, Brown and Company. Audiobook production by Hachette Audio.

Season 5 of Revisionist History included four episodes on the rise of air power during the Second World War. Listeners met Air Force generals Haywood Hansell and Curtis LeMay and heard about the birth of napalm and the firebombing of Tokyo. Malcolm couldn't get that story out of his mind, and so he built an entirely new audiobook around it. The Bomber Mafia. The Bomber Mafia thought they could re-invent war, in part because of a reclusive genius named Carl Norden. In this excerpt, you hear more about him and his game changing invention, the Norden Bombsight. If you loved those episodes, you'll be in history heaven with The Bomber Mafia. It features more archival footage, new writing, and enhanced scoring. It's a totally new experience. Purchase the audiobook at www.bombermafia.com, and you'll receive a free Listener's Guide featuring new commentary from Malcolm. Print and ebook editions available wherever books are sold.

Introducing Pushkin's newest show, Some of My Best Friends Are...hosted by Khalil Muhammad and Ben Austen, two best friends who grew up together on the South Side of Chicago in '80s. Khalil and Ben invite listeners into their conversations about the absurdities and intricacies of race in America. Mixing anecdotes, entertaining storytelling, and thoughtful debate, Some of My Best Friends Are... helps listeners make sense of a deeply divided country. In this episode, Khalil and Ben look back at two classic Interracial Buddy Films: 48 Hours and Lethal Weapon.

This week, we're sharing an excerpt of Michael Lewis' new audiobook. Michael published his first book, "Liar's Poker," in 1989. It’s about his time as a bond salesman on Wall Street — and it was a runaway best seller. For the first time, Pushkin is releasing an unabridged audiobook edition, read by Michael himself. Incorporating Pushkin’s signature sound design, scoring, archival tape and Michael’s incredible insight – this new edition of Liar’s Poker perfectly captures an era of greed, gluttony and outrageous fortune. But it is also the story of how young Michael Lewis became a writer and launched a storied and celebrated career. Download the audiobook today at pushkin.fm/liarspoker and receive an exclusive listener's guide featuring additional commentary from Michael, the producers and editors of Liar's Poker as well as photos from Michael's personal archives.

We’re hard at work on unearthing new tales of the overlooked and the misunderstood. Season 7 will be ready this summer! In the meantime, we’re welcoming a new member to the Pushkin family. Jacob Goldstein, former Planet Money co-host, hosts a new show called What’s Your Problem? He talks to entrepreneurs about the future they’re trying to build—and the problems they have to solve to get there. They’re asking questions like: How do you take a drone-delivery business you’ve built in Rwanda and make it work in North Carolina? The answer is so surprising and illuminating that we wanted to play the episode for you in full. We hope you like it.

Malcolm invites best-selling author Michael Lewis back to talk about the third season of his Pushkin show, Against the Rules. On his podcast, Lewis explores what’s happened to fairness in American life through the lens of people who depend on public trust. In past seasons, he interviewed referees and coaches. Now, he's looking at what’s happened to experts, from weather forecasters to medical billers to expert witnesses. Why is a society that's so good at creating knowledgeable people so bad at trusting them? Hear a sneak preview of the new season.

To interview captured North Vietnamese soldiers and guerrillas in order to measure the effect of relentless U.S. bombing on their morale.

In the summer and fall of 2009, hundreds of Toyota owners came forward with an alarming allegation: Their cars were suddenly and uncontrollably accelerating.

The Satire Paradox

2016-08-1841:041

In the political turmoil of mid-1990s Britain, a brilliant young comic named Harry Enfield set out to satirize the ideology and politics of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. His parodies became famous. He wrote and performed a vicious sendup of the typical Thatcherite nouveau riche buffoon. People loved it. And what happened? Exactly the opposite of what Enfield hoped would happen. In an age dominated by political comedy, “The Satire Paradox”asks whether laughter and social protest are friends or foes.  To learn more about the topics covered in this episode, visit www.RevisionistHistory.com Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

liked most of the episode... why'd we have to wright into the story a vision of 16 year old lesbians. Sure children that age are sexually curious and questions on hetero/homosexuality certainly are in play, but seems like it was a throw away thought and falls into the same issues the episodes tried to call out that Disney isn't thinking about the messages/visuals in it's movies. at a minimum why couldn't she have been 18 or 21?

A 7 second Google search proved that you do have to have a transponder in planes unless they are balloons or gliders. Why lie?

Climate change. So, Revisionist refuses to take that second look at the hysteria behind “climate change”, to try and ferret out the truth. This is all you need to know about the podcast. C’ya.

dedicated Pushkin listeners who may not have the resources, yet without whose support & encouraging others to listen to your early productions you would not have succeeded, are now excluded by a paywall ... one doubts Pushkin would approve, I certainly don't

How do you have a conversation with the pillow guy, Bannon or even Ben Shapiro? Bigots and sociopaths don't converse Malcolm.

You could also look at Little Mermaid as an allegory for racism. Seeing as King Triton was against any association to "humans".

Every time I get into the groove a commercial comes on. The reason I dropped regular TV & OPT for wifi only. I understand capitalism, but Puskin-Gladwell come on, your not that special to drop so many commercials every few minutes. Packages were devised shortly after basic cable came on the scene in the 70s, which may happen to podcasts. Who knows.
