A great venue for Sam. Thank you for being a voice for sense & sanity in a mad world. He answers questions for many seeking answers, that make sense- uncommon sense. An excellent educator & a great mind. Peace of mind. 👍💜

I used to like Harris. He was always pretty autistic when it came to his concepts of what is good and what is bad. He seemed to think that suffering was to be totally avoided, even though suffering builds strength, perception, character, and morals. But I overlooked that because there was so much...Read full review »

It’s not only the quality of the podcasts that stand out to me. So far all of the episodes have been informative, and provided valuable relevant information that can be implemented immediately into your life. Most podcasts in the genre, are using the business model of requesting a paid...Read full review »

I’ve been listening to Sam Harris for a few years now and it’s been lovely to understand his views on various topics and see how they connect logically. He’s just an interesting person to listen to! He’s well spoken and has a nice voice but his views are on the radical side in terms of free will...Read full review »

Have signed up to the full episodes and definitely not disappointed. Quite the opposite. Very insightful and important topics. One of the best podcasts to open your mind. Keep it up Sam and thank you.

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...Read full review »

Sam Harris is one of the last sane voices left standing in the West. He is wholly principled, blisteringly intelligent and surprisingly funny. How he somehow manages to remain dispassionate, eloquent, coherent and compassionate is simply an anomaly. A compelling man. The fact he gives his work...Read full review »

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...Read full review »

Been supporting Sam Harris since the End of Faith, back in 2005. It’s sad to see he put up this paywall, but I will continue to support him by buying his books, as they trickle out. His audience, and influence, is now drastically diminished by his self imposed decree. This was a great...Read full review »

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

Sam’s mellow voice makes for the perfect white noise as you are winding down for bed.

Great Podcast! Couldn’t recommend it enough. Love the Nuance!
Opinion97 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/20
For what it’s worth, I enjoy the meditation episodes. It’s interesting and often compliments the Phil mind stuff nicely... maybe do an episode with Robert Wright? I find his writing on this stuff to be clear and level headed.
bjohns383 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/20
Unfortunately, the same person who espouses that the only way to change the world is through rational conversation has decided to put up a paywall to these conversations. Otherwise would recommend the podcast. Rated low for the intellectual dishonesty or contradiction of the overarching...Read full review »
sad since new update via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/20
This used to be a daily simple listen to me. But Sam over the years has been so obsessed with monetizing that hes taken away content. Meanwhile others do 4 hour plus podcasts among other things without the need to monetize. Your greed is as stinky as the stink of a collection basket.
Wurby via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/20
Love the podcast. Sam’s calm, serene and mindful approach is lovely to listen to. His guests are intriguing and thought provoking. Sam is not afraid to ask the difficult questions and values logic, morality and rational above emotion, bias and political correctness. He is a sane voice of reason...Read full review »

Not interested in every guest/episode so it’s hard to justify a sub for 20% of the content that interests me. Donations/ads are the better way to go...there’s too many options vying for our times these days.
onlyfattybrisket via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/14/20
To me, he is one of the best thinkers. His ideas have changed my way of thinking and in many aspects, my life. He is worth a listen. 10/10.
rb1231331233 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/20
Every time I listen to an episode from this podcast I feel challenged and intrigued, and it makes me stop and think about my life, my beliefs, my view of spirituality and of the world. This has led me to subscribe to the premium access, and will probably lead me to continue to listen for as long...Read full review »

Positioned firmly at the top of my podcast ladder. Sam is well spoken and thoughtful. Topics are varied and discussions interesting. I Encourage all humans to listen to and support this podcast and Sam Harris’s important work.

“Among the Deplorables” is a podcast I am listening to now. I don’t think I’ve ever listened to a person whose chat is more filled with vacuous statements totally unsupported by evidence whatsoever. I’m offended by a writer who constantly interjects “you know “ and “right?”, as if anyone who’s...Read full review »
Jgrock96 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/05/20
Sam, I already pay for your meditation app and buy your books. I love your podcast but won’t pay for it as well. I’ll miss your conversations and hope you change your mind on the ads. Best of luck!

Typical fatherless pro feminist philosophy.. If you’re a guy listen to some Patrice O’Neal instead..
EladG via Apple Podcasts · Israel · 01/05/20
Just subbed in time to only listen to the first hour. Took a minute to figure out I’d have to get his podcast some other way to finish. Not gonna happen.
hahanfbfii via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/20
But the host sounds depressed. Reach out if you need to man there’s hotlines if you need help.
z1g702 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/04/20
It didn't take long for the theme music to grow on me. This podcast is fantastic. Sam engages his guests well. Most recently listened to #179 with Judson Brewer. The conversation was intriguing and the back and forth with Jud and Sam was enjoyable and informative.Read full review »

Was really pumped to start subscribing for the new year, then got abruptly discouraged by the paywall cut-off in the middle of the interview. Too many quality free-with-advert pods out there to fiddle with this one.
Believeinpeople via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/03/20
“Spacetime has to go” is a very funny statement because it refers absolutely and only to the very interface you are discussing. Spacetime is simply a way of trying to understand how bodies interact, thus it is obviously relative at every point. we are only interacting with a small part of a...Read full review »

Great content, really nice and thoughtful as always with Sam. However, this is just a preview. It’s not a proper podcast. These are just previews.
Kodjie via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/02/20
I discovered this show a year ago and it has changed my life. I’ve gotten into many new people and ideas because of it, read many new books, etc. But unfortunately I can’t justify paying for a podcast. I have my own podcast and I guarantee it is a lot more work and more of a complicated...Read full review »

I’m disappointed to see we now have to pay to listen to an entire podcast. Sorry, it’s just not worth.
Rosebud2578 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/02/20
Sam wants everyone to hear the podcasts, but he also wants to put the podcast behind a paywall. I must have missed that chapter in the moral landscape.
Jeff the tander via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/01/20
As much as he speaks some good hard truths, he leaves out important questions and overall really tried to push his agenda really hard: even with his interviewees he tries to get them to agree with his point of view, and not just accept theirs.

You have some really awesome interviews. Please stop with bringing politics in when not applicable to the subject being discussed, it detracts from the subject.
EchoBoo12 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/30/19
I have been following Sam's content for quite a while, and am very grateful for the knowledge he bestowed on me, the meditation practice I developed, and the critical thinking that I employ in my every day, thanks to this podcast.Read full review »

I’ve tried to swallow the new intro music, and each release of a new episode when it blares forth, I run to my iPad to turn it off. Usually it’s just easier to jump over to another podcaster. It would be nice if you reconsidered your recent change and find something less manic and more towards...Read full review »

I know you probably won’t see it this way, Sam, but cutting these conversations short in editing to push subscriptions really makes this feel like half a podcast. It may be that a broken podcast is better than nothing at all, but the way these are cut now just makes them more frustrating than...Read full review »

Sam Harris a great interviewer, thoughtfully probing some of the greatest thinkers and authors of our time. There would be a a huge gap in public awareness if this didn’t exist.

Love the show though! But I beg you to rethink those particularly irritating opening cords 🙏

Sam’s podcast has been leaving an increasingly unpleasant commercial aftertaste since the name change. After a bit of a hiatus on my side I came back to a conversation on a very interesting topic only to have it end abruptly 30 minutes in with a subscribe or get lost message. While I can...Read full review »

Philosophy meets neuroscience, and other extraordinarily keen insights. When I do not agree with Sam, he challenges me to think my positions through carefully in a way that I understand them better, whether or not they change. He's doing great things through this podcast and his Waking Up...Read full review »

The new paywall has fundamentally changed this podcast. The free content is incomplete, and thus very unsatisfying (I guess this is intended to get the listeners to pay up). I am giving up on this podcast. This is still a quality podcast, but there are many other good ones, and I can't...Read full review »

One of the best podcasts on all things that affect us.

Sam’s podcast opens my mind to ideas that enrich my life and make me a better person. I should have subscribed long ago but now I am proud to be supporting his great work.

Makes no sense keeping a free feed with only half episode. If you want to transition to subscribe only, by all means do it and get rid of this “free” feed.

Lea1002 via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 12/19/19
I respect the effort to deviate from an ad model, but is this podcast not the loss leader to recruit for all of the other content users can spend their money on (Harris books, Harris App, Harris live talks)? Harris once described himself as someone who fundamentally “thinks in public.” The long...Read full review »
