Malcolm Gladwell has been an influential thinker for a number of years. I’ve enjoyed several of his books. His new podcast (www.revisionisthistory.com) seems to be taking off. I’m working through the episodes, but the last three (Episodes 4, 5, 6) address education and some of the issues facing it – specifically related to financial issues.
I listened last night to Episode 06 where he addresses philanthropy in higher education. I think its a great listen and if you’re wondering how to influence change – particularly in our context change as it relates to theological education – I think you’ll find it informative.
