One of the best podcasts available

Sam Harris continues a streak of clear, rational thought—which is a breath of fresh air in the maelstrom of biases parading as facts and truths.

It is a long form podcast that feels like you’re placed between two intelligent, thought-provoking people deep in a fantastic conversation. No over-bearing production, no editing, no long intros, no ads.

Highly, highly recommend; I listen every week without fail. Keep up the wonderful work, Sam!

(P.S. Also, if you can, support the podcast financially via his website! You get access to additional material!)

With the guests’ name was on the title

Great podcast. One suggestion; sometimes I wanna learn more about the guests and having their name in the title would be very helpful in allowing us to circle back later and look them up.
