    Presenting: The Bomber Mafia by Malcolm Gladwell

    Presenting: The Bomber Mafia by Malcolm Gladwell

    I’m hard at work on the next season of Against the Rules, coming this fall. Until then, I wanted to share a new audiobook from my good friend, Malcolm Gladwell. The Bomber Mafia looks at one of the greatest moral challenges of the Second World War. It’s a riveting tale of persistence, obsession, innovation, and the incalculable wages of war. You’ll hear the voices of generals, the sound of aircrafts and bombs crashing. It is history brought to life through the power of audio. You can order the Bomber Mafia now at bombermafia.com.

    The Unfair Coach

    The Unfair Coach

    Back when coaching didn’t do very much, it didn’t matter who got it and who didn’t. But coaching is clearly getting better and better, and spreading into more areas of life, which means it matters a great deal who gets it and who does not. And the people who don’t get it are often the ones who need it most.

    A professor attempts to teach the art of landing a joke to America’s next generation of business leaders, but will she tip the scales of privilege even more along the way?

    We see the other darker side of data coaching in sports, when the weaponization of information enables a cheating scandal that puts an end to a promising pitching career.

    The Data Coach

    The Data Coach

    We explore the quantitative, scientific, and data-driven new frontier of coaching. 

    Major League baseball is undergoing a coaching revolution from old-school to new tech. We talk to players whose careers were turned around not by a charismatic coach, but by data, and the techies who coach them.

    We see how data coaching is creeping into the workspace with a computerized conversation coach that has pinned the successful sales pitch down to a science.

    The Coach Effect

    The Coach Effect

    Colleges today talk a big game about valuing diversity — so why are so many of them failing to retain first-generation students?

    We meet a homeless straight-A track star and her ad-hoc college application coach to look at why it’s so hard to get into college while rural, poor, and uncoached.

    We go deep with coaches and students at a non-profit called ScholarMatch, founded by novelist David Eggers, to find out just what it can take to get first-generation college students over the graduation finish line.

Great Anecdotes. Insightful comment on the subject

As ever, Michael Lewis uses his dry humor to poke a finger into awkward truths about the way our world works. Interesting and rattling in equal measure. Definitely worth a listen.
