I never heard of Sam Harris, but I save the link and definitely will be listening in the future. It is very civil and informative dialog. Thanks for sharing.


Thanks for sharing this link. I like Sam Harris, and I especially like how he tries to keep things respectful with people with whom he disagrees. I don't think I've ever seen him take a cheap shot at a rival, and he talks a lot about never wanting to misrepresent his opponents' views. I don't know of Eric Weinstein, but I'm familiar with Ben Shapiro and I've found him difficult to listen to because he's very slick and sounds impressive by times but very rarely deals with the subject matter honestly. It seems very much like he's practiced in rhetoric but doesn't care whether his argument is valid just so long as he makes his ideology look good.

Wow, what an excellent review, and I find Ben very hard to listen to as well.
