Making Sense with Sam Harris

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). The End of Faith won the 2005 PEN Award for Nonfiction. His writing and public lectures cover a wide range of topics—neuroscience, moral philosophy, religion, meditation practice, human violence, rationality—but generally focus on how a growing understanding of ourselves and the world is changing our sense of how we should live. Harris's work has been published in more than 20 languages and has been discussed in The New York Times, Time, Scientific American, Nature, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, and many other journals. He has written for The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Economist, The Times (London), The Boston Globe, The Atlantic, The Annals of Neurology, and elsewhere. Sam Harris received a degree in philosophy from Stanford University and a Ph.D. in neuroscience from UCLA.

The Alison Donaghey Show

If you don’t question what you believe in, then what is the point of believing in it? The biggest challenge in the world today is that we surround ourselves with people who think just like us and it’s dangerous because we then think we are more right than we actually are and dismiss other people and their points of view. We have forgotten how to have conversations with people who disagree with us. This has to stop. This show is designed to get you thinking about a different perspective. Be it prison reform, gender identification, time management, BDSM, parenting… the idea is to have you suspend your belief and perhaps consider the opposite.

ConCiencia Podcast

Un Podcast de religión para aquellos que desagradan de la religión! Producido por www.ConCienciaMedia.com y Andres Marin Solis. Hay 3 cosas que tienes que saber antes de escuchar un show de ConCiencia. 1- Este podcast no es de predicaciones... (para predicaciones vaya a la iglesia) Este podcast es de conversaciones. Nosotros creemos que conversar es indispensable para aprender y formar opiniones educadas. Si, ConCiencia trata de comentar, criticar y desafiar el estado actual del cristianismo y su relación con la sociedad actual, con una pizca de humor aveces. Y por eso sabemos que talvez va a causar controversia y posiblemente ofenderá a uno que otro religioso. Pero no se preocupen!!! Que no les vamos a vender una religión ni les vamos a estar rogando que se hagan cristianos ni hay comisión de por medio. Se los prometo! 2- Si crees en Dios, posiblemente este programa te vaya a ofender en algun momento... si NO crees en Dios, posiblemente este programa te vaya a ofender en algún momento, y si crees en extraterrestres... los creadores del programa tienen las expectativas tan bajas que no te van a juzgar. (Esperamos que nos extiendan la misma cortesía) 3- Los creadores del podcast no tienen ningún entrenamiento profesional y nunca van a presumir de saber mas o de ser mejores que nadie, pero les gusta informarse y leer hasta mas no poder, y por eso es que pueden debatir a muerte un tema entre ellos por horas y al final 2 cosas suceden que son muy interesantes: lo primero es que posiblemente ninguno va a cambiar de opinión, y lo segundo es que ellos van a seguir siendo amigos y se van a seguir respetando (como personas digo... Por que veces son mal hablados y se maltratan con palabras entre ellos). Ojalá el mundo real fuera así. (De respetuoso, no de mal hablado, aunque... No se si sabían pero un estudio llego a la conclusión que las personas mal habladas son usualmente mas inteligentes y tienen la capacidad de... Ahh, no importa) Con esto en mente... Esperamos que disfrute el programa, y si quiere, le invitamos a que sea parte del show y del movimiento. Les agradece: Andres Marin Solis Frank Joya Anthony Sepulveda Visítanos en nuestra pagina www.ConCienciaMedia.com y lee nuestro blog... y siguenos en facebook: www.Facebook.com/ConCienciaMedia.

The History of Witchcraft

The belief in magic and witchcraft has existed in every recorded human culture; this podcast looks at how people explained the inexplicable, turned random acts of nature into conscious acts of mortal or supernatural beings, and how desperate communities took revenge against the suspected perpetrators. While this might sound like a particularly morbid subject, I aim to present it in an entertaining, but informative, way. Of course, there are cases of genuine tragedy in this history of witchcraft, but with a gap of several hundred years, it's ok for us to find humour in the image of, for example, an Anglo-Saxon witch attempting to ward off the Norman invasion of England by exposing her buttocks. That didn't work very well, if you're wondering...

The Pope's Long Con

In 2016, Danny Ray Johnson was elected to state office. The fast talking biker-preacher known as "The Pope" paints himself as a 9/11 hero. He says he raised the dead! But our seven month investigation uncovered a much different picture: Attempted arson. Another mysterious fire. Alleged bootlegging and molestation in the church. For years, Johnson broke laws. Now he helps make them. What happens when the institutions we rely on look the other way? How does a liar slip through the cracks into a position of power? This six-part series attempts to find out.
