From an immigrant

I am a naturalized citizen from E Europe. I lean right and I am a Trump supporter yet I ll still rate Sams work with 5 stars for effort. Obviously, we disagree over many, many issues yet I appreciate Sam. To dismiss someone that still has a high level of sanity in today’s landscape would be unfair. Oh ....hope your heads don’t explode over the Trump admission.

Should be called “Going to sleep”

Something about Sam Harris’ voice just puts me to sleep every time I listen to this podcast. I wish I could stay awake for the conversation because the subject matter is really interesting but his voice is soft and monotone. No real feedback, I don’t think Sam Harris should ever change his voice, but if you need something that puts you to sleep...
