    The Queen of Cuba

    The Queen of Cuba

    On February 24, 1996, Cuban fighter jets shot down two small planes operated by Brothers to the Rescue, an organization in Florida that tried to spot refugees fleeing Cuba in boats. A strange chain of events preceded the shoot-down, and people in the intelligence business turned to a rising star in the Defense Intelligence Agency, Ana Montes. Montes was known around Washington as the “Queen of Cuba” for her insights into the Castro regime. But what Montes’ colleagues eventually found out about her shook their sense of trust to the core. (In this excerpt from Malcolm Gladwell’s forthcoming audiobook Talking to Strangers, we hear why spy mysteries do not unfold in real life like they do in the movies.)

    The Obscure Virus Club

    The Obscure Virus Club

    Throughout the 1960s, a biologist named Howard Temin became convinced that something wasn’t right in science’s understanding of viruses. His colleagues dismissed him as a heretic. He turned out to be right — and you're alive today as a result.  Season Four ends with a bedtime story about how we should be freed by our doubts, not imprisoned by them.

Just plain interesting

Along with the „Ezra Klein Show Podcast“ and „99% Invisible“, this is one of my standard staples to listen to when I have some time to myself.

The first three seasons are very interesting and thought-provoking. I especially liked the episodes on social policies of the private colleges and the policeman with the dog in the Deep South. Not everything is as its seems. The episode on Texas and the U.S. constitution was also a good listen.

Will make you laugh out loud and yell at your iPhone!

As only Galdwell can do, he has done it again! If you like his books you will love this podcast. He and his first rate team present how crazy is sometime common place in America.

Thank you for the review of the CTE / football connection. I think you Penn state talk is the best hour of presentation ever! The listener can hear and feel the passion and conviction of the presenter.

Really your Chutzpah episode, were you out of ideas or just sick that week? Weak weak weak! Try better next time.
