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.

It makes you think

This podcast is amazing. Every episode makes me reflect for days after I listen to it. Really smart thoughts on absolutely interesting subjects. Highly recommend it.

Começa muito bem

A primeira temporada é ótima, mas a segunda e a terceira têm alguns episódios que não são tão interessantes.
