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 Panoply Media. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.

Diluted Truth Disguised as History Revised
Originally subscribed with big hopes for this since as a concept this podcast had big opportunities. However mid podcast it falls flat in a big way. This is especially emphasised by the fact he attempts to use one of Australia's most cunning, dishonest & backhanded Prime Minister as an example of the struggles women in power face....... Let's hope the game is stepped up.
Classic Gladwell. Interesting, gripping, insightful and thought provoking. Congratulations to the whole product team including the composers. Magic.
Good start, engaging.
I enjoyed the narration and the narrative. I applaud an author who engages a subject such as gender equality from both a historical and modern perspective. Sadly a 50 minute podcast is a short time for such an expansive topic.
On Julia Gillard: being an Australian who voted Labor I was less than impressed with her manouvering to oust Kevin Rudd. However; on the topic of how she was treated by Tony Abbott and the vastly conservative media, it has to be said it was embarrassing. Devastatingly painful for Ms Gillard; biased and crude media and opposition taunts made many Australians cringe.
All the same, I look forward to the next episode!
