My interview in Areo magazine

Malhar Mali of Areo Magazine interviewed me last weekend, and the transcript of the interview is now posted; you can find it here. Regulars won’t learn anything new, I think, but maybe newbies will. Thanks to Malhar for both interviewing me and transcribing our Skype talk.

Milo appears on Maher

Last night the controversial Milo Yiannopoulos appeared on Bill Maher’s show, which is like putting a match on gasoline (Maher would be the gasoline). I received that information from several readers, and here are some quotes from their emails (I’ll not give their names): Interesting Bill Maher show with Milo. Really reinforces the idea that […]

France 24 interviews Salman Rushdie

Salman Rushdie has a “new” book (see below), although it’s actually a year old. And review have been mixed (see this versus this, for example). I haven’t read it, so readers who have should weigh in below.  This interview with France 24’s Marc Perelman is nominally about the book, but really deals with a number […]

Sam Harris on Dave Rubin’s new show

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 […]

My podcast with Hemant Mehta

Hemant Mehta, the “Friendly Atheist“, waylaid me during the American Humanist Association meetings (he lives in “Chicagoland”) and asked me to do a podcast with him. I readily agreed, as he’s a nice guy, and the podcast, in which I was co-interviewed by Hemant and Jessica Bluemke, was just posted. You can find it by […]

A new Dawkins interview

Hot off the press, with almost no YouTube views, we have a six-minute interview that Richard gave yesterday to the BBC’s “Sunday Morning Live” (the interviewer isn’t named). This is his first real appearance, beyond his videotaped Reason Rally speech, on a televised interview. Considering his stroke, he seems to be doing very well despite, […]

My interview with John Larson

John Larson is a student at Portland State who’s just started a radio podcast called “Upstream.” The first guest was Asra Nomani (see below), and I was the second—interviewed just yesterday. You can hear the hour by clicking below. As always, I can’t bear to hear myself, but I know we discussed free will, the […]

Sam Harris drains the intellectual cesspool of Salon

Over the years, Salon has proven itself an organ of the Regressive Left, vilifying atheists at every turn, constantly flaunting the canard of Islamophobia, and coddling religion. With the exception of Jeff Tayler’s “strident” antitheistic Sunday Secular Sermons (see his most recent piece on the soppy, faith-osculating David Brooks), it’s a pretty vile place for those who adhere to Enlightenment […]

My interview on the Phil Ferguson show

This is an hourlong podcast interview with Phil Ferguson, which I did yesterday (on top of my two-hour yakfest on the Milt Rosenberg show). It deals with both WEIT and FvF, and matters evolutionary. As always, I can’t bear to listen to it, but you can–by clicking on the screenshot below. It starts at 18:40, and […]
