I was a huge fan of Harris ever since Free Will and the waking up pod. However he has recently become so consumed with cancel culture and not understanding anti-racism that it’s challenging to listen to. He seems to only bring on people that agree with him now. I’m still grateful for some of the...Read full review »

It’s a good podcast with interesting interviews, but I feel it lack deep discussions because most of the guests are in alignment with Sam and it becomes more like an echo chamber, which is fine when one acknowledges it and then look somewhere else for a different opinion. You won’t listen this...Read full review »

A very considered and insightful podcast which takes time to consider issues of the day. A very welcome and necessary antidote to the dearth of ranting podcasts currently available.

Disagree with every word that comes out if your mouth but for some reason I am addicted thanks this podcast you are a very clever and smart human being Sam. I just hope and pray you wake up and realize there is a god . Take care!

Sam is one of the few voices of reason . It’s sad how both sides want to resort to name calling when they are presented with facts. Everything is not black and white people. Wake up!!!!!!! We are humans. We are Americans. Act like it.

It’s like this genius neuroscientist all of sudden became my old crazy racist uncle. I have loved Sam since “Letter to a Christian Nation”, but I can’t listen to these out of touch social blatherings

TheDonutr via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 09/13/20
Goes to show that meditation isn’t a panacea. We all have out blind spots and Sam is no different. That he actually brings out the 13/50 stat so beloved by white supremacists is truly unfortunate. And because he’s into jiujitsu that makes him an expert in the dynamics of violence AND police...Read full review »

Sam is an intelligent voice of reason in a world of too much insanity
Minna's daughter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/12/20
Sam Harris was an important voice, but he willfully reduced himself to alarmist rants about the very bad orange man. I’m waiting for any of Sam’s extremist takes on Trump to manifest in reality. No podcast paywall for the poor is admirable.

So hard to play full episodes on Apple podcast. Web version stupid when screen is locked. Nightmare.
GreenEye2020 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/20
This podcast has become a self-reverberating monologue of Sam’s “Greatest Hits”. I hear very little debate and whole lot of gaslighting and fear mongering. His “logic” is beginning to sound like stubbornness and hysteria.
jhobbbs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/20
Used to love the podcast but the constant trump derangement syndrome was too much for me to continue
Willlllis via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/08/20
I’ve cancelled my subscription/donation because of Sam’s recent compulsive need to draw moral equivalence between left and right (equivalence at best; he gives far more voice to criticizing the left, I suppose assuming criticism of the right is obvious). Perhaps if Sam wakes up to the actual...Read full review »

This podcast is an amazing way for anyone in the rest of the world to understand the USA. It is a window into the fear that drives American culture, politics and foreign policy. The back-catalogue of fascinating discussions ranging from contemporary issues to metaphysical ideas is truly...Read full review »
Nico Yoga via Apple Podcasts · Sweden · 09/07/20
I have never witnessed an individual so good at masking his gigantic ego with such a calm pseudo-intellectual way. He does not like it when anyone disagrees with him and he’ll go to great lengths to prove he is right. Huge ego. It’s gross.
Brenda333333 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/20
Sam, I’m a liberal that has been left behind by the left. The news I used to trust to tell things the way they actually are has become no better than Fox News for the left. Please keep talking sanity to those fools. Because the way it’s going, we are looking down the barrel of another four years...Read full review »
the Mad Hermit via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/20
I subscribed to the full version of the podcast but Sam should really make up his mind about what the podcast is ... right now I would say it’s a monologue that is covered up as an interview. Considering how great some of the guests are it’s a shame Sam can’t shut up and listen to them rather...Read full review »
schmiddi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/20
Intelligent, thoughtful,insightful, witty. Recent episode on the idiocy of racism misreporting was brilliant. I just wish he'd not keep slating off Trump. Sam, like so many other intelligent people, seem unable to understand his motivation or humour.Read full review »
LotusBlueTwo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/05/20
After listening to several episodes, I’ve noticed Sam seems to speak way more than his guests. He will ramble on in a monologue making several of his own points, and then when finished, will only give his guests the time to address 1-2 (of his 3-5) points before changing the topic. What is the...Read full review »
E5trella333 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/20
Sam, in my humble opinion, is an example of how truly great humans can be. He thinks about a problem deeply and from all sides. He talks about things that aren’t popular, which makes him brave and a hero. His podcast is one of the best parts of my week.
tpiper via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/05/20
I disagree with Sam a lot, but he’s not pandering for clicks.

I have been listening to Sam starting from 2015; he is brilliant BUT unfortunately he has a RACE issue as reflected in his views of IQ and police brutality. That is sad.
Gomej via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 09/05/20
There are times when Sam’s viewpoint causes a knee jerk repulsion. What’s prevailed through those moments is Sam displaying what debate can be, a tool to refine one’s inner truth and seek a collective understanding. Debate absent of ego holds a liberating potential.
Mr.Oakenshield via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/20
...and skip the politics. Your bias against any so-called left pov, your beating up on straw men with guests who share your views, your blaming the victim mentality is gross and frankly boring.

The show used to be interesting. Unsubscribed after the airplane rant about Trump. It’s humorous to hear you rant about incompetence while supporting Biden. The guy who sadly struggles to speak.

Life is confusing. Speaking as a young widow with child white african working on the frontlines during the epidemic with a child with autism. Well life is for sure better with Sam in it. Keep up this contribution to humans Sam!
dievraagisbelangrik via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/29/20
The first episode I listened to was amazing; a discussion on genetics - I thought I would love this podcast. Every other conversation is so incredibly uninteresting. I listened to him argue with some lady about an article she wrote and how it ruined his life, a creepy NY Times guy talking about...Read full review »

Fear not! Sam is not a sesquipedalian! Listen and Sam will free you from the shackles of hypocognition with is mellifluous parlance.
DanoSchmano via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/24/20
I get so invested in his conversations with his guests then it will end out of nowhere. The person expects me to go use another platform to go listen to the rest of the podcast. He’s interesting, but I would not switch platforms to listen.
Ronaldo...317 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/21/20
I’m a fan as he’s integrated deep thoughts into day-to-day issues - very grateful for this. He tends to be left, and very left in terms of religion, on the political spectrum; but really is the most reasonable person from the group I’ve listened to. I’m happy to have found him. These talks have...Read full review »

An “accomplished” person, almost too methodical in approach, and more so in tone (c’mon man, being super-cerebral doesn’t rob you of intonation). Even more distracting is his propensity for dropping random curse words that add nothing to the discourse ...ok, I’ll give him some slack here - after...Read full review »

While I am neither an atheist nor an agnostic (full disclosure: I am an even worse theist), I rely on Sam Harris for his brilliant mind and his reasonable approach to most topics.
