Some of you might have reached your Tipping Point with politics these days. And sadly, you can’t just Blink and make What The Dog Saw go away. Or that feeling of being totally overwhelmed. Of course, there are Outliers among you, people for whom everything seems to be going alright. But perhaps not you. At times it might feel like you’re in a David and Goliath-style matchup.

And if you want to know why Gladwell is so intent on evoking tears from his listeners, check out this week’s episode of The Big Listen.
