Revisionist history: Today’s questions, yesterday’s answers
Malcolm Gladwell's new podcast views past events through a different lens and analyses what we can learn from them
Two episodes in, best-selling writer Malcolm Gladwell’s podcast Revisionist History is at No.1 in the iTunes Charts of US Podcasts. The podcast, launched earlier this month, will have 10 weekly instalments on topics ranging from gender bias to basketball. As the title of the podcast suggests, Gladwell will take up a historical event or person in each episode—“Something we all missed. Something we all remembered but misunderstood"—and review it through a different lens to “correct the record".
