Join neuroscientist, philosopher, and best-selling author Sam Harris as he explores important and controversial questions about the human mind, society, and current events.

Sam Harris is the author of five New York Times bestsellers. His books include The End of Faith, Letter to a Christian Nation, The Moral Landscape, Free Will, Lying, Waking Up, and Islam and the Future of Tolerance (with Maajid Nawaz).

So Many Paths Meet Here

Sam is an eloquent and articulate speaker. I am continually moved by the skill he uses to express complex though-matrices in select words in economical conversation with other great minds. A lifelong mysticist, I arrived here following the path of science to discover a fascinating confluence of nueroscience, meditation and consciousness. I had reached a point of frustration with the spiriutal path. I thought I had heard everything. But through this podcast I have discovered entirely new sources and channels of inquiry. I highly recommend it.

My Most Looked Forward to Podcast

Of all the podcasts in my library, this is the only one that’s a must listen every time. Sam is a brilliant conversationalist and debater. I appreciate the high level of intellectual discussions that take place on the show and I often become interested in the work of the guests on the show. By far my favorite podcast.

Give him a try...

... If you don’t like what he has to say, you can always push “stop.” Cheers!
