Despite declining profits and accusations of fake news, Malcolm Gladwell isn't worried about the state of journalism today.

"This is the golden age of journalism," the best-selling author argues.

Soon after launching Season 2 of his hit podcast Revisionist History, Gladwell sat down with Martine and Isabelle to chat about everything from Trump's privilege to listening to Barbara Frum as child and his thoughts on The Beatles (not a fan).
