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.

Everything I expect from a podcast
Obviously Pushkin Industries know what they are doing. I discovered the collective with Against The Rules, which I find absolutely great, and Revisionist History is at the same level of quality: the podcast tackles a difficult task but thanks to a clever angle, a skilled story telling and fascinating speakers the 30 or 40 minutes per episode are enough to rethink and better understand some of the most sensitive challenges for our societies today. Congratulations to the team for the awesome work, and thanks for sharing.
Very high quality content
I love listening to Malcolm Gladwell. I listened to all of his books. He is an amazing writer. And his voice brings his writings extra meaning.
