About the podcast

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. iHeartMedia is the exclusive podcast partner of Pushkin Industries.

While Revisionist History is about Gladwell’s interests, the show also provides insight into Gladwell himself. On an episode titled “Malcolm Gladwell’s 12 Rules for Life,” Gladwell tells an anecdote to show how anxious he can be about appearing disagreeable to others. He then says that one of his life rules is to be self-assured enough to never worry about whether others find you disagreeable. This kind of quirky line-toeing is at the heart of Gladwell’s compelling nature. While he can be a bit too clever at hiding any fragility in his theses, he never shies from making unexpected arguments that cause us to question our surroundings. Revisionist History is our opportunity to see the world through Gladwell’s eyes. It’s perplexing, frustrating, and always worth a second look.

One of the only podcasts for which I listen to every single episode. Gladwell is provocative and sometimes a bit arrogant/annoying, but every episode is interesting and brings to light fun and forgotten historical perspectives!

In my latest history interest, love this podcast for re-examining historical events and learning from them. A more accessible history podcast than hardcore history.
