Very much like Tim Harford’s Cautionary Tales, Gladwell studies overlooked data in our recent history, sometimes defying traditional interpretations. His vast range of interests takes listeners to different areas of knowledge such as data analysis or how Elvis music is blatant appropriation of the black scene of the time.
Revisionist History, a podcast from Malcolm Gladwell and Pushkin Industries. Each week for 10 weeks, Revisionist History will go back and reinterpret something from the past: an event, a person, an idea. Something overlooked. Something misunderstood.
