Description

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.

It's so amazing me to how such intelligent people let political bias completely steer their interpretations. Is he insinuating Hillary Clinton was held back in any way like the Elizabeth Thompson in 1879? How completely absurd. If any man on the right committed the crimes she did they'd be in prison. Gladwell also compares Rush Limbaugh to an Australian shockjock that made a disgusting remark regarding Gillards father's opinion of her after his death. He's obviously never even listened to Rush Limbaugh. Malcom, you have my respect as an author. But you are seriously blind to your leftism, as most leftists are. Revisionist history, as it turns out, is an apt title for this series as we've watched the left revise history to cover their corruption and causation of human suffering since it's inception. 1st and last episode for me. What a shame.

Harry Enfield was wrong about Loadsamoney making no difference; it made him into a rich man sneering at other rich people.

This is one of the many examples, that the culture of heroizing "victims", like the violent BLM protests, is mostly based on exaggerations and bending of facts. Political lies.

ARRRG ARRRG being in denial about violence against black people and the violence of white supremacists does no good for you, our communities, our country or the world. denial perpetuates hate and it perpetuates violence. if we acknowledge the truth then maybe these things can be solved without anger.

When is generous orthodoxy not enough? When life and liberty are at stake it may not be powerful enough to effect change. I like the approach though.

there is a big difference between humor and satire, which I think has been rather overlooked here.tina fey and her piece on Sarah Palin was hilarious and funny - and hardly satirical. good satire has a hard point it is trying to make - if that isn't evident, it is just humor. or that the examples of stellar satire fawned about in this podcast are actually absolutely terrible satire.

Can't recommend this highly enough. Great insights into music and production. J.C. version of Hurt moves me to tears almost every time!

i think youre reading way too much into these little slip ups. ive had several occations where i said the wrong word and i know for a fact it wasnt a "freudian slip" because the word i said had nothing at all to do with anything. sometimes people just make mistakes. you cant assume theyre all subconscious confessions of what they feel deep down.

I have recently discovered this podcast and it has quickly become a favorite if mine. This is a truly amazing episode. I have listened to it five times and I have come away emotionally moved each time. Malcolm has a unique way of making you feel like you are in the room and on the journey with him. This episode is a treasure trove for a music fan.

you can't take 2 very different things and call them the same because there is similarities. look at female painters and artist now they have every opportunity a man does, yeah it took a long time and people who got miss treated along the way but it did eventually change...the same will happen with politics as well
