Recommended listen: Revisionist Histories
Revisionist Histories (no relation) is the best podcast. Malcolm Gladwell takes a second look at stories you think you know. The guy is a next level contrarian and he always finds some remarkable new perspective on previously settled things. He has a knack for finding the loose thread and unraveling the whole story.
Try this one out: Good Ol Boys. Randy Newman writes a song about a racist guest on a late night show. Good intentions aside, Mr Newman wrote a pretty nasty redneck anthem.
