One of my favorite podcasts. Gladwell does a great job
I never know what I’m getting into when I play one of Malcolm Gladwell’s podcasts in this series, or if I’ll even like the subject matter. But, without fail, I end up googling the names of his characters, wanting to read more about these fascinating people. I just finished the “Saigon” episode, and I’m sitting here thinking about Conrad Keller and Maya Eliot (sp?) and how my life is so boring compared to these people Gladwell introduces us to. I also think about the lessons he draws from these stories, and I finish each episode feeling a little more enlightened. Thank you for sharing these stories, Mr. Gladwell!
I am a huge fan of this podcast and all of the ways it triggers thinking “differently”. After listening to the Semicolon episode, I shared this with several friend. Then, as I was reading my local Sunday paper, I shouted to myself “They’re doing it!” when I read about Tim Draper’s initiative to split California into 3 states. Very. Very. Cool!

Intriguing, thought provoking, emotional, gut wrenching, infuriating, and amazing. Opened my eyes to the many facets of issues we think are so obvious...... I await each one with baited breath
How is Gladwell better at podcasting then he is at writing, where he is already a figurative giant??
Malcolm Gladwell weaves great stories while examining interesting events!
Free Brian Williams is a great insight into memory and the injustice resulting from it. Malcolm Galdwell is, as usual, both insightful and brilliant.
Gladwell is brilliant as always; I have been one of his loyal readers since I first discovered his work in The New Yorker. Gladwell is warm and thoughtful, witty and inspiring. The two part series on memory tilted my perspective forever. Thank you. I went from being outraged for how Brian Williams was treated to being a teary puddle of compassion and humility. I’ll never take my memories without a pound of healthy skepticism. I drove from upper Ontario to southern Pennsyltucky, listening to Season 3 the whole way. The miles didn’t matter—I was in the hands of a master storyteller-essayist, who shares his mic with A+ minds. Get ready to laugh, cringe, and be changed—all wrapped in the arms of pleasure. My only complaint is the long and intrusive ads. But earbuds make it easy to mute!
Excellent and entertaining podcast
I thoroughly enjoy this podcast! Often the topic of conversation isn't one I'm well versed in, but I'm hook throughout the entire discussion. Whether we're talking about free throws in basketball, golf, McDonald's French fries...at the end of the podcast I am more informed than before it started. I highly recommend this podcast, especially to commuters.
I am just coming into my love for the podcast genre. I am very happy to call this one of my first real descoveries that has changed the way I think about the western culture I live in. I like that a lot. The quality of the show is incredible. The music, the dialogue, the interviews and Malcolm especially. His voice is almost better than his writing, almost ;)
For this emotionally rich and beautifully constructed commentary. Your work is refreshingly thought provoking and I’ve enjoyed every show immensely. In a world where so much information is delivered like fast food and consumed with as much care, it’s wonderful when works such Revisionist History remind us to be mindful of accepting all at face value and to always take that second look.
Malcolm for breakfast. Malcolm for lunch. Malcolm for dinner. I just can’t stop listening to Malcolm. My insomniac mum hates me because now she can’t stop listening to Malcolm all night. So good.
This podcast blows my mind every week. Gripping stories about humanity, cleverly woven together.
Malcolm is great to listen to and, while he doesn’t shirk from giving his views, I find them balanced and challenging. I have found many of the stories so compelling, interesting and easy to listen to that I replay them 3 times: from the Wilt Chamberlain story to provocative education issues to civil rights. I have a new hero in Mr Halliwell - what a man! The podcasts provide a different look at history, as promised, and Malcolm’s summations often provide a different perspective beyond just the story he’s told.
The day after Chuck Norris was born, his afterbirth enlisted as a Navy Seal.
So engaging. Makes my commute so much more enjoyable
Malcom Gladwell is so articulate it’s sexy. Intelligent, funny and thought provoking. Not to be missed.
Highlighting so many things most people don’t want to hear about, whether social problems or historical hiccups, this stuff is essential!!!
At last a podcast that. An really change your views and opinions.
This is such variable quality. When Gladwell reveals unknown stories or presents new takes on recent history, his podcast is captivating. When he indulges his personal musical interests (Elvis Costello, sad songs) or his peculiar loathings (golf) his podcast is execrable.
Awesome socio-historical archaeology of the already exposed and now forgotten stories.
Seriously? Do they need to be there? You kind of lose respect for someone when they start talking about how great Uber is. Like the podcast. Not this addition GB
I've read a couple of Gladwell's books and have been fascinated by his narrative for quite some time now. What I like the most about his podcast is the randomness of it and how you get hooked from the beginning all the way to the end. I highly recommend it. GB
Constantly makes things you didn’t think mattered or things you weren’t even aware of into the most important topics you’ve heard. Cannot recommend enough! GB
Never regret. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it's bad, its experience.
