    Revisionist History Presents: Deep Cover

    Revisionist History Presents: Deep Cover, the true story of an FBI agent in Detroit who goes undercover in an outlaw motorcycle gang and makes a series of bizarre discoveries that inadvertently lead to the US invasion of a foreign country.
    In the first episode, Detroit FBI agent Ned Timmons busts Toby Anderson, a violent criminal who also fancies himself a budding country music star. Ned flips Toby and goes undercover as a biker, but Toby quickly goes out of control. He uses the newfound protection of the FBI to commit robberies and perhaps far worse. Most agents would give up, and send Toby to jail, but Ned has a feeling Toby might be his key to the criminal underworld.

Brilliant, fun, balanced

Superb variety of topics, makes you reconsider your perspectives. Malcom is witty and fun. He does not try to copy and creates a genre that suits him perfectly. Overall world class journalism/writing on which to binge podcast. Very happy i discovered this show !

Great podcast

A bit over a week ago I discovered this podcast, and I have been binge listening ever since. It makes me think, which is wonderful, and it’s also funny and moving.

Recommended by my stepdad, and I love it!

What Malcolm Gladwell does very well in my opinion, great is that he discusses topics that are interesting, they make you think and often have a philosophical aspect in them. He does not know convey information, it also has a very human side to it. All his guests are treated with respect as are the people he talks about, yet it is not at all subjective. Would recommend to all!
