One has to struggle to find a podcast as continually interesting, worthwhile, and wide-ranging as this one. Keep up the good work. It speaks for itself.

A diverse and endlessly interesting series of conversations. It feels like being a fly on the wall for all the most interesting discussions that have ever taken place. Life enriching.

Rarely do I send commentary as I often assume while your staff may read the comments most never come to your awareness. Hopefully you will actually be able see this comment.

All I could do is laugh at the interview with Caitlin Flanagan. She doesn't understand history, feminism, or feminist history, and she comes across as stupid and uninformed.Sam Harris' s championing of her is also nothing by laughable.

When this guy says nuance it means maintain status quo ~ the dude is super racist no matter how softly he tries to soft step ~ you cannot explain away the system by subscribing to it..

Sam asks smart questions of some of the brightest most influential thinkers of our time and doesn’t shy away from topics that others would be fearful to cover, especially in an age where free thought and expression is stifled by the politically correct authoritarian types so prevalent...Read full review »

I love to hear Sam’s take on politics, science, and everything in between, and he usually has really interesting and insightful guests as well. Funny to read negative reviews from people on both sides of the political spectrum...I think that means you’re doing something right.

Love the podcast! Especially the debates with Jordan Peterson. Basically watching an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object.

Sam curates the most interesting guest list in podcastville. His conversations are interesting and varied, and he allows his guests to present their best self and is always kind and fair.

I like Sam’s books. I subscribed to Waking Up as well. But hearing him on this podcast gives me the impression that he often needs to always feel smarter than his guests. His vernacular is overly scientific, and often mismatched, and comes across as pseudointellect....

... Sam, for the last 1/2 hour of the podcast, where clearly you disagreed with Pearl, measure how much time you spoke vs your guest? You were not listening or engaging, you were just waiting to talk. And as much as your arguments sometimes make sense, the listeners are there to hear from Pearl....Read full review »

I like listening to your podcast... but I have to say you most definitely have Trump Derangement Syndrome.
AHol7997 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/07/19
In a world of eternal chaos, Sam Harris makes his arguments in such a calm and methodical way, even if you are completely against his team, you have to listen to it! Even though I have a few disagreements with his view on certain topics, I find hard not to agree with him on most of the subject...Read full review »

Today’s podcast is if you’re listening to Einstein,Nietzsche conversation. Very lucky trying to grasp all. Nice how Sam lays it down and remains very witty humor..to listen to the whole podcast is necessary to enjoy fully.!!
Ronnief69 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/19
Sam, thank you for continually causing me to rethink my view on a topic, sharing thoughtful commentary, and bringing crazy smart people to my attention. You are the most well spoken person I listen to. Truly one of my favorite podcasts!
idifnenw via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/19
Sam’s way of being himself and sharing his opinions while exploring grand ideas with other intellectuals is delicious brain food. As far as podcast hosts go, Sam does a better job than any other I’ve yet come across of making clear to his audience when he is speculating on an idea and when he is...Read full review »

Buddarasta via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/05/19
Thought provoking open questions by Sam. Allows the interviewee to discuss all their thoughts without interruption.
iGreg97 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/05/19
Sam lies down with pigs and complains he's dirty when he gets up. Most of his podcasts are complaints that some neo-nazi he debated is now saying less than nice things about him. Who could give a flip if a guy who debates with neo-nazis has bad things said about him? HE INVITED IT! Sam used...Read full review »

Sam always has a way to stimulate my intellectual curiosities and an impressive ability to present his views in compelling way. I agree with many of his philosophies and thoroughly enjoy the guests he brings on the show.
MikeB01010 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/04/19
Keep coming back to this podcast to catch up on previous episodes. Just listened to #151 with Nick Bostrom. Fascinating discussion on existential risk and AI. Sam Harris never fails to have excellent guests on the show, and it is always rewarding to listen to.
Paul B8972 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/04/19
I love Sam Harris. He is a great writer, interviewer, and person. His books have changed my ways of thinking. One could live a complete life listening only to this and the Joe Rogan podcast. They both don’t set time limits in their interviews and beautiful things result. Sam Harris is like...Read full review »
MrChris_ via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/03/19
Always insightful and thought provoking. The variety of guests is fantastic. Sam Harris is a true thought leader and deep thinker of our time. Time well spent no matter the topic or guest. And his Waking Up meditation app I hear is also one of if not the best available as well. Thank you for what...Read full review »

Captivating discussion spanning 3 hours of dialogue - amazing to get such a continuous stream of reflection and thought. Two great minds bounce ideas and concepts back and forth testing the very edges of our understanding on consciousness, identity, intelligence and more.
youcantryreachingme via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 08/01/19
One of the most thought provoking podcasts.
manton187 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/31/19
Whether you agree or disagree with his view on any given position, you have to agree that what he is doing is of utmost importance in these times. Sam, Joe, Dave, and Ben doing these long form interviews allow topics to be fully unpacked and looked at from all different angles. I've quit...Read full review »

Sam Harris is certainly one of the most intelligent people on Earth today. Combine this with excellent guests from various scientific fields, and you have the best podcast there is.

The most honest & open podcast at hand

I love your app, really I use it all the time but please build a night mode, this white background is way too bright at night :(
DanJayy via Apple Podcasts · Vietnam · 07/27/19
I'm a woman (minority) and I LOVE Sam's conversations and his meditation app. Just listened to Ricky Gervais... amazing. I support the podcast monthly & the supporters content is even better (town hall w/ Eric Weinstein).

Iv been searching for this my whole life, amazing!!!!’
mwalts via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/25/19
Seriously considering visiting his patreon after leaving this review. Having an open forum for intelligent discussion that is outside corporate influence is so important!!
Sabatino91 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/19
The opportunity to listen to intelligent, articulate and interesting people is rare, but Sam Harris manages it with every podcast. The Ricky Gervais episode is particularly good.
Levente123 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/25/19
Harris has a knack for getting interesting guests, and for being willing to make or support arguments without regard to political correctness. The problem is how much of the show has become Harris talking about how liberals don’t value free speech and how mean they are to him on Twitter. Whether...Read full review »

Thoughtful and entertaining discussion on important subjects, can’t lose with this podcast.
Jeff Tha Fat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/24/19
Sam is relatively unrivaled in his ability to combine bold, sometimes boundary-pushing dialogue with consistent nuance and thoughtfulness; add that to his impressively articulate speaking manner, and I see no reason to not become a regular listener. One of the most valuable resources I’ve come...Read full review »

Very succinct, insightful thoughts on a variety of subjects.

recently found this podcast. Intense! Great to hear well constructed opinions on topics I've barely touched on but can instinctively agree with once heard. Im learning every time I listen

Always a good choice for those long runs.

Sam Harris always remains so calm and collected. He raises pertinent points. Intellectually stimulating listening.

He just makes sense! Thank you!

For rational thinkers and those who need to learn how to be - covering diverse topics including science, politics, religion, etc.

Thought provoking and incredibly addictive!!
podcastinohio via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/17/19
I turn on this podcast when I feel self deprecating and want to hear white privileged sis-gendered men excuse their behaviour and clarify their greatness. One shiny gold star sticker for Sam.
Rayziemay via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/17/19
This is my #1 podcast, the one that I enjoy the most and listen to first. Consistently thought-provoking, interesting with a range of eclectic guests. I often learn something new from Sam and his guests. It's informed and helped me refine my thinking on a range of issues.
True birdie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/16/19
These podcasts expand your knowledge on so many topics that you could spend your intellectual life chasing the spin-offs by reading the books by the speakers and looking up their YouTube and ted talks.
