About Revisionist History

IntroductionWhat Is Revisionist History?

Welcome to Revisionist History, a podcast from Malcolm Gladwell and Pushkin Industries. Each week for 10 weeks, Revisionist History will go back and reinterpret something from the past: an event, a person, an idea. Something overlooked. Something misunderstood.

Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.
