Simply the best

This podcast is absolutely incredible. I have listened to every episode, and some numerous times. I’m an avid podcast listener, listening to a wide range and number. But when people ask me for a recommendation, I invariably recommend Revisionist History. I have to warn them though - they’ll spend the rest of their days trying to find something as good!

Revisionist history is thought provoking, engaging and entertaining. Malcolm Gladwell is a master researcher, writer and story teller. Listening to this podcast will make you feel like a smarter, better person.

Insight

Brilliantly crafted podcasts covering not necessarily all the major moments in history but stories and perspectives never considered or covered in mainstream media. Absolutely addictive.

Loved it until I realised he was a fraud

I loved this podcast until I learnt that Gladwell has no moral compass and no transparency. He has an ultra-conservative background and has shilled for Big Tobacco, Pharma and defended Enron-style financial fraud, all while earning hundreds of thousands of dollars as a corporate speaker, sometimes from the same companies and industries that he covers as a journalist. Read the report on Malcolm Gladwell on the Shame Project's website (S.H.A.M.E exposes corrupt media public figures, document journalistic fraud, covert propagandists)
