CBC Radio's Terry MacLeod spoke to Malcolm Gladwell in advance of the best-selling author's talk at the Centrallia global business forum in Winnipeg on Wednesday night.

When asked what his talk would be about, Gladwell replied, "It's all about what it means to be an underdog … and why being an underdog is a lot stronger and powerful position than what people believe."

MacLeod and Gladwell also discussed the concept of forgiveness, which Gladwell has been researching for an upcoming book.
