EP. 5 — Sam Harris

Sam Harris is not afraid to be vocal about his views on religion. He’s a neuroscientist who believes all of our moral questions can be answered through reason and science, not faith. And that’s exactly why David wanted to talk to him. In their conversation, David and Sam talk about how Sam discovered the true meaning of love through MDMA, how the two differ when it comes to interpreting religious metaphor, and how Sam sees the “tolerant left” as a danger.
