Revisionist History: A Great New Podcast by Malcolm Gladwell

In his podcast, “Revisionist History”, that plays over 10 weeks, Malcolm Gladwell (celebrated author of zany ideas, like “The Tipping Point”) discusses something overlooked or misunderstood from the past.

To quote BusinessInsider, “…Gladwell tells us about his beef with billionaires, police violence, and how his new hit podcast lets him explores issues in ways his books can’t.”

Gladwell has become the sort of guy you’re always glad to see on a talk show. He brings ideas to the table that whet your appetite to learn more about almost any subject.

According to the Detroit Free Press, “…the premiere centers on a military-themed 1874 painting, “The Roll Call,” that’s on display in England’s St. James Palace. A sensation when it was first exhibited in the days before radio or TV, it toured the country like an oil-and-canvas version of the Beatles and was bought by Queen Victoria. For Gladwell, it’s the jumping-off point for a wide-ranging, yet smartly interconnected look at what it means to be the groundbreaking outsider who joins a closed society.”

The paper also says that, “…if the rest of the episodes are like the first one, it’s going to be a thinkfest.”
