Revisionist History podcast. Malcolm Gladwell dives deep into critical events in world history, using recent findings in social scientific and humanities research as a lens to view these events in a new light. Favorite episodes: The Lady VanishesThe Prime Minister and the Prof, and The Big Man Can’t Shoot.
