Introducing Revisionist History Season Two

From bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell, season two of Revisionist History launches June 15th.

The Satire Paradox

In the political turmoil of mid-1990s Britain, a brilliant
young comic named Harry Enfield set out to satirize the ideology and politics
of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. His parodies became famous. He wrote and
performed a vicious sendup of the typical Thatcherite nouveau riche buffoon. People
loved it. And what happened? Exactly the opposite of what Enfield hoped would
happen. In an age dominated by political comedy, “The Satire Paradox”asks whether laughter and social
protest are friends or foes.
