I just heard Patrick George on Malcolm Gladwell’s new free podcast Revisionist History. If you’re not a subscriber, you should be. The episode re-examines the whole Toyota runaway accelerator incident, and featured a snipit from a (probably old) interview with Jalopnik editor Patrick George explaining how ABC rigged a car to recreate the results, and then ran the story as if they were in a stock car.

Anyway, it was neat. I’m a huge Malcolm Gladwell fan, and have been following Jalopnik for years so it was cool to see two of my passions combine.
