Worth your time

Smart, interesting, in depth. Thoughtful commentary on issues we need to examine.

An eye opener, a true and necessary reality check

For me personally, Sam Harris’s posdcast is a perpetual intellectual, metaphysical, introspective resource and for me it transformed into my own “University of Life” where I dive in almost daily with great curiosity and excitement. The conversation here is focused on pressing current and future problems which make me contemplate perpetually of my own human condition, my place in my community, in the world and in the Universe. Sam changed my life with this podcast and with the Wake Up meditation App.
My recommendation is to add it to your favourite podcasts list without hesitation and return to it regularly for raw doses of reality.

Great Intellect

I have been listening to Sam Harris for a while and I genuinely appreciate the area of concerns. Simply because there are many imperative points that require attention and yet we do not hear a lot of coverage regarding topics such as AI, Psychology etc. His guests are people with a plethora of knowledge and worth listening to; especially Paul Bloom! Therefore, a must recommendation!
