Do you have two hours and 18 minutes? Probably not, but in case you do, here’s the first episode of the new, crowd-funded “Rubin Report”, which is clearly meant to be a progressive show that’s opposed to Regressive Leftism. Its motto, at least for the season, is “Make American sane again.”
Dave Rubin got Sam Harris as his first guest, and here’s their conversation. There’s a 5-minute introduction, so if you want to skip the encomiums for patrons, and request for new donations (you can donate here), start at 5:00 (note the bottles of wine and spirits strewn all over the set). I’ve only listened to snippets, so I won’t comment, except to say that these are two articulate people, and it’s a good listen. There’s also a bit about free will in the second half.
About an hour in, Harris explains why we must talk about the religious aspect of terrorism. It’s a very good argument, and a firm rebuttal of those who claim that we should by all means ignore or even deny that connection. There’s a bit of discussion of Hillary Clinton, and then a segue to the free will discussion starts at 1:18:22. If you’re not familiar with Sam’s take on free will, or his differences with compatibilists like Dan Dennett, this bit will be useful.
