Voice of reason in today's unreasonable times

Excellent podcast with outstanding guests and an impeccable host. The podcast is deserving of an honest listen, devoid of any preconceptions or ideological motivations by the listener. Sam Harris is a brilliant thinker and writer, who occasionally gets maligned and misrepresented by people who tend to suffer from various ideological pathologies or other intellectual / cognitive deficencies.
