"pure genius from gladwell - great storytelling"

"Gladwell would be a FAR better journalist if he stopped drawing his conclusions from his own ideas and anecdotes that he pretends are facts. He puts stories together well, but far too often they are not based on anything solid, just his own wishes. This isn't how journalism works, no matter how famous you are, or how little people care about actual journalism. Respect the craft, don't be a part of the problem."

"Not too long. Very interesting. Extremely well produced. Always a joy to listen."
 
Dusse reviewed this podcast on Jul 1st, 2017
"At its best, thought-provoking and thoughtful, but at its worst drawing big, sweeping conclusions about the world and human behaviour from nothing or anecdotes. For the most part, Malcolm Gladwell is a good storyteller, but too frequently he shows a lack of real understanding of the subject he is talking about and an unwillingness to admit his own limits. When that occasionally combines with his convinction of his own greatness as a storyteller, the result can be truly atrocious, but the podcast as a whole is still worth a listen. The less speaking-time he gives himself and the more he gives to others, the better the result tends to be."
