1.) Revisionist History, by Malcom Gladwell- Each week, Gladwell goes back in time, and re-interprets a person, event, or an idea, much like he did with his book, "David and Goliath." Believing that sometimes past events, ideas, and people deserve a second chance, this podcasts goes over what might have been overlooked, misinterpreted, or misunderstood.
2.) More Perfect, by Radio Lab - Gives an interesting look inside the US Supreme court, and how cases calculated in the world of the Supreme Court have a great affect on our lives, far away from the bench.
