    Introducing: A Slight Change of Plans, Apple Podcasts' Best Show of the Year

    Pushkin is thrilled to announce that A Slight Change of Plans was named Apple Podcasts' Best Show of the Year! This week, we're sharing an episode with Revisionist History listeners.

That understanding, mixed with a healthy dose of compassion, has made the show a perfect antidote for the times we’re living in. Dr. Maya Shankar has interviewed celebrities like Tiffany Haddish and Kacey Musgraves. But she’s interviewed real-life inspirations, too. People who have dealt with cancer diagnoses or the loss of a loved one, and somehow managed to learn and grow from those hard experiences. 
    In this episode, Maya discusses a heartbreaking change she recently experienced in her personal life, while on her way to becoming a mom. Maya's producer Tyler interviews her about her own “Slight Change of Plans.”

Strong verbs, short sentences. Right?

I laughed, cried, got enlightened, became anxious and then inspired. Thank you Pushkin.

Fascinating

Gladwell brings his eloquent, inquisitive nature to the podcasting medium with sublime effect. Eye-opening, gripping and thoroughly enjoyable, the show will leave you with a desire to question the accepted wisdom and search for new narratives.

Stretched out triviality

Much like his books, each episode is a fuzzy and trivial “insight” with fluffy padding.

It seems intellectual, smart and forward thinking.. but in reality is pretentious, contrived and a big waste of time.

A vehicle for adverts, to sell books and to sell your attention.
