Author Malcolm Gladwell loves writing about the events that take place on the margins of society. It should come as no surprise then, that he’s on the brink of launching a podcast that deals with overlooked moments in history. It’s called Revisionist History and it’s being produced by Slate‘s podcast network, Panoply. The first three episodes will examine why a 19th-century female painter all but disappeared after initial success; basketball player Will Chamberlain’s complicated relationship with underhanded free throws; and why it’s difficult for even the most talented minority students to achieve success in America’s education system. The ‘cast is slated to debut on June 16, 2015.RR
