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.

Must hear podcast

Topics are interesting in their own rights but the twists and turns each episode takes are the stuff of good history, the things that make history interesting, complicated, worthwhile and important. Humans are odd and complex, and our collective history is messy. Gladwell tries neither to clean it up nor sanitize it.

And his delivery -- partly bemused, disbelieving, and outraged narrative often in a single episode -- is well-matched to the content.

Gladwell is FANTASTIC

From one of the great introspective authors of our time comes the podcast Revisionist History. Having thoroughly enjoyed and been enlightened by seasons 1, 2, & 3, I’m looking forward to season 4 with great anticipation.

If you haven’t listened before, at least jump into season 3 and listen to The Hug Heard Round the World. It will open your eyes and make you a fan!
