How will he ever top interviewing his wife?

I have listened to this podcast for close to a decade now, and have since read (or am in the process of reading) all of his and many of his guest's books. In an age where many people profess an ideology based on newspaper opinion pieces and social media posts of like-minded people, I find Harris and his guest's level of meaningful intellectual engagement to be both a refreshing change from a fearful, too-often morally and ethically moribund contemporary reality.
Having said all that, I must confess that his interview with (his spouse and intellectual equal) Annaka Harris was one of the most engaging podcasts I have ever listened to, full stop. It is clear that they Harris household is one of extreme intellectual stimulation, yet with a level of humanity and compassion that compells me to listen to it again and again. Thank you both for providing such a meanigful, humaine and thought-provoking interview.

The best exploration of earnest and intelligent discourse

The best thing about Sam Harris' podcast, is his courage and curiousity to engage in conversations with people who might dislike and disagree with him. It feels hopeful to witness how to debate with respect, earnest and intelligence.
