Good episode? Give it some love!
Last Friday, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sam Harris!

We had an excellent, robust discussion on a variety of topics. We didn’t necessarily agree on everything, but even in disagreement Sam is an absolute pleasure to speak with. I admire his integrity, intellectual honesty and willingness to engage in difficult conversations.

Below are some links to references we made in the conversation:
