In this previously released episode, Malcolm Gladwell responds to backlash he received over his belief that working in an office—and the collaborative creative environment it can offer—is in your best interest (and in the interest of others). We also dive deep into some of the important themes featured in the seventh season of his podcast Revisionist History, including: kindness, generosity, and sacrifice. And, Dan and Gladwell share their biggest mistakes as journalists.

Malcolm Gladwell is the president and co-founder of Pushkin Industries, and the author of six New York Times bestselling books including The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, David and Goliath, and Talking to Strangers. He’s also the host of the new Pushkin podcast Legacy of Speed.

In this episode we talk about:

  • The backlash Malcolm faced from his work from home comments
  • Pushing the noise aside when it comes to social media
  • Lessons in kindness from a recent Revisionist History episode
  • The importance of flow states
  • How he personally relaxes
  • Why people should have a lifelong pursuit or practice
  • What he thinks now about his famous 10,000 hours argument
  • Why we need to engage and investigate the views of others to be morally alert as human beings
  • His biggest journalistic mistake
