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.

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.

Malcolm may be able to convince me of a lot of things- cafeteria meals matter, people should throw basket balls like my mum etc- but he will never convince me country music and music shows in general are interesting...

It's so amazing me to how such intelligent people let political bias completely steer their interpretations. Is he insinuating Hillary Clinton was held back in any way like the Elizabeth Thompson in 1879? How completely absurd. If any man on the right committed the crimes she did they'd be in prison. Gladwell also compares Rush Limbaugh to an Australian shockjock that made a disgusting remark regarding Gillards father's opinion of her after his death. He's obviously never even listened to Rush Limbaugh. Malcom, you have my respect as an author. But you are seriously blind to your leftism, as most leftists are. Revisionist history, as it turns out, is an apt title for this series as we've watched the left revise history to cover their corruption and causation of human suffering since it's inception. 1st and last episode for me. What a shame.

Casey Teschner Wow. Pot, meet kettle. Lovely blanket statements from one who criticizes for the exact reason. Priceless.

Harry Enfield was wrong about Loadsamoney making no difference; it made him into a rich man sneering at other rich people.

This is one of the many examples, that the culture of heroizing "victims", like the violent BLM protests, is mostly based on exaggerations and bending of facts. Political lies.

ARRRG ARRRG being in denial about violence against black people and the violence of white supremacists does no good for you, our communities, our country or the world. denial perpetuates hate and it perpetuates violence. if we acknowledge the truth then maybe these things can be solved without anger.
