    Presenting Lost Hills

    Presenting Lost Hills

    We're hard at work on Season 6 of Revisionist History. But in the meantime, here's an episode of a new show from Pushkin that will keep you up at night: Lost Hills. After 35-year-old scientist Tristan Beaudette is murdered in front of his two young daughters, other victims come forward telling similar tales of a sniper in Malibu who has been shooting at campers and moving cars for the past 18 months. Always in the dark of night, at 4 a.m. The cops say they can’t connect the crimes, but then they arrest a drifter: 42-year-old Anthony Rauda, who lives under a tarp behind the Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station. Rauda insists he's being framed. Is he the killer, or a scapegoat?

    Presenting: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Art of Public Speaking (from Cautionary Tales)

    Presenting: Martin Luther King Jr. and the Art of Public Speaking (from Cautionary Tales)

    Season six of Revisionist History is coming later this spring. But meanwhile, season two of Pushkin’s great show Cautionary Tales is underway. Host Tim Harford brings us stories of awful human error, tragic catastrophes, daring heists and hilarious fiascos. In this episode: What are the risks of improvising a speech? One approach to public speaking is to memorize and get everything perfect, but risk seeming stilted and disconnected from your audience. Or you can try speaking off the cuff, sometimes resulting in disaster. As always with Cautionary Tales, there’s a twist. If you enjoy this episode, subscribe to Cautionary Tales wherever you get your podcasts.

Best podcast so far

For me, with one word: empathy. There is more than meets the eye in everything. I’ve listened every episode within short time. I’m also in the middle of reading Sapiens by Harari. Somehow these two are resonating with me strongly.

Once insightful, now dogmatic

On the newest season, each episode is either stretched to allow to for political commentary that I was not looking for, or from the start the subject is framed in a way that allows Malcolm to moralize about something.

Finally I was listening to “Good old boys”, which was supposed to be about a song. Yet Malcolm found a way to shoehorn “A white nationalist who complained about fake news on the media, lost the popular vote but won the election to the highest office “... Really? Before anybody makes any assumption about my identity: I’m a Mexican migrant and I didn’t vote for the Elected President.... But I’m sure tired of being told over and over and over that the President is a White Nationalist (he is not) and the media does not lie about him (they do). If I wanted a political commentary, Malcolm, I would subscribe to one. Which I do... only not yours.

Thought provoking, high quality podcast

Highly recommended!
