Revisionist History

Screenshot
Fans of popular writer and New Yorker columnist Malcolm Gladwell - author of The Tipping Point and Outliers - as well as those generally curious about social trends, art, contemporary issues, and history, will want to check out the new podcast, Revisionist History. Gladwell released the first season - ten episodes in total - during the summer of 2016 and will return with more episodes in Spring 2017. Those interested in educational policy may be especially interested that Gladwell's first season features a three-episode series dedicated to questions of human potential and educational opportunity. Other episodes address topics as diverse as Walt Chamberlain's famous underhanded free throw, the role of satire in our political process, and the complex findings from a 1965 Pentagon study in Saigon about the effects of U.S. bombing on North Vietnamese citizens. On this website, visitors can listen to all ten podcasts and check out accompanying resources, including primary documents, videos, and related books.
