About the Podcast
Revisionist History is Malcolm Gladwell's journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood. Season 3 of Revisionist History launched in May 2018, adding to the previous two seasons of episodes. 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. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.
