Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance. more

  • Downward trend

    Used to be thought provoking. Now veering into two people (host, guest) very entertained by their own (not each others) thoughts and jokes, with a sly jerk to “you’re so cool if you get this” to the audience

    Great podcast by knowledgeable, funny, and engaging Mr. Gladwell. I never thought a 30 minute segment on cars would keep my interest. But you did!! Season 9 on guns was riveting. Thank you for introducing me to Dr. Pratt. He is the definition of an American hero! more
