Revisionist History Presents: Deep Background with Noah Feldman

Revisionist History - February 12, 2020 - 29:45

Could we really fix gridlock in the Senate by creating new states? Malcolm revisits the "Divide and Conquer" episode from Season 3 in an interview on Deep Background with Noah Feldman, the newest podcast from Pushkin Industries. "Divide and Conquer" covered Texas's right to divide into 5 separate states. What if Washington, D.C. -- a non-state territory -- tried to divide their city into 127 separate states? A recent anonymous note in the Harvard Law Review proposes just that. It's just the kind of bananas idea Malcolm loves to dissect, and Noah Feldman, a Harvard Law Professor and Constitutional law expert is the perfect foil. Noah's podcast, Deep Background with Noah Feldman, is available wherever you get your podcasts.

About The Show

Revisionist History is Malcolm Gladwell's journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood. Every episode re-examines something from the past—an event, a person, an idea, even a song—and asks whether we got it right the first time. From Pushkin Industries. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.
