Revisionist History Season 7: The Experiment Experience

Relax and Win from Legacy of Speed
Sharing a new Pushkin show, Legacy of Speed. When two Black sprinters raised their fists in protest at the 1968 Olympic Games, it shook the world. More than 50 years later, the ripple effects of their activism are still felt. Host Malcolm Gladwel tells the stories of the runners who took a stand, and the coaches and mentors who helped make them fast enough — and brave enough — to change the world. In this episode, we hear how coach Bud Winter took what he learned from working with fighter pilots in World War II and created a system for training sprinters at San Jose State. His “Relax and Win” methods used breathing, visualization and other unconventional coaching techniques to create a powerhouse track program. Another thing that made him unique at the time? His focus on recruiting Black athletes to a mostly white school. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Finding Yourself with Not Lost
Introducing Not Lost, the latest show in the Pushkin podcast slate. It’s hosted by Brendan Francis Newnam, long-time host of the radio show Dinner Party Download, who’s now the force behind many of Pushkin’s audiobook originals. Not Lost is a travel show about finding yourself in places you’ve never been. A few years back, Brendan was a bit lost himself – his radio show and relationship ended simultaneously. So he hit the road, always with a friend, and ventured out to new cities. Not Lost takes us from Montreal to Mexico City, as Brendan and crew seek the essence of the place, while angling for an invitation to a stranger’s house for dinner.

Who Was Bob Cooley?
Deep Cover is a show about people who lead double lives, how far they’re willing to go in pursuit of a greater cause, and how sometimes, seemingly small decisions can change the course of history.
