A Collection of My Favorite Sam Harris Conversations from “Waking Up Sam Harris Podcast”

Sam Harris

Sam Harris

if you are familiar with Sam Harris then you know he’s a controversial intellectual, but I think that if you make the slightest effort to listen to him honestly you’ll be able to understand that his highly considered, nuanced and thoughtful views are not as scary as some people would like to make out.

When I listen to some of these podcasts I get brain orgasms and that’s one of the reasons I want to share them with you. If you're not already a fan I’d recommend you take a look at his work and listen to his podcast; his guests are truly fascinating, prolific and extremely relevant individuals. 

I’ve been familiar with the people below for many years now and I find the style of dialogue on Sam Harris’s show adds value to my understanding of these surprisingly insightful intellectuals.

Do yourself a favor, Google these people and become familiar with their thought and work. For me, learning from people like this is the definition of a good time.
