How much proof do you need in order to act on something? If you have circumstantial evidence that a certain behavior may harm your health, would you stop the behavior even before you have conclusive evidence? Malcolm Gladwell uses the examples of black lung disease and football head injuries to examine this question in more depth. In this audio episode, the popular author turned podcaster once again proves his knack for converting big questions into compelling narratives. And you don’t need to care for American football to appreciate the episode’s broader message.
