Gladwell’s Fascinating Revisionist History Podcasts

I recently learned about and now have listened to a few of Malcolm Gladwell’s Revisionist History podcasts.  Malcolm Gladwelll is one of my favorite authors and I have learned so much from his books, David & Goliath, What the Dog Saw, Blink, Outliers, The Tipping Point, and many articles.

 

Like his great books, these podcasts help the listener take a second look at things that have happened.  The second look he takes provides a different, valuable and a more detailed perspective about the story.  Each have been very interesting and I encourage you to listen.  In future posts I will outline what they meant to me and how they have helped me and hopefully you better understand how we can take action to generate comprehensive improvements by creating interactions so everyone and everything benefits.

 

If interested, I highlighted some episodes I thought were interesting and I thought you would like.  In “The Satire Paradox” he looks at the effect of political comedians such as Colbert and Saturday Night Live. He  provides an interesting perspective on the impact of these shows. In “The Big Man Can’t Shoot” about Wilt Chamberlain and Rick Berry, he looks at what could have dramatically impacted Chamberlain’s career.
I also liked the informative perspective  he provides about what happened with desegregation after Brown vs. Topeka Kansas in Miss Buchanan’s Period Of Adjustment. If you are interested in higher education and how well it capitalizes talent in America, as he puts it, he has a 3 episode series – Carlos Doesn’t Remember, Food Fight, and My Little Hundred Million.  It provided food for thought.
Overall, these podcasts shed light on what we are doing and what we could  Practice Paneugenesis so we generate comprehensive improvements by creating interactions so everyone and everything benefits.  Next week I hope to post about how one of these stories may help explain how we can more often experience wellness, or progress.

 If you listen, please share what you got from them, I am interested in your thoughts.
