    Wealthy White Men Talking Shop

    Wealthy liberals talking about how government should rule our lives as opposed to letting individuals make rational decisions on our own. Essentially, these very articulate white men seem to honestly believe that they are better arbiters of how you should spend your money than you are. Not atypical of our times. They promise that if you give them the fruits of your labor, THEY will spend it wisely. The rich have been telling that same lie for centuries.

    Slipping

    Sam is an interesting modern intellectual, but lately his choice of guests had been sub par. Academics bore me when they like the sound of their own ideas. Guests to often are single variable thinkers, and then seem to think the genpop are idiots for not acting the way they think they should. Sam=good guests=bad

    Title is just spot on

    True to its name, I do find that almost every episode is deeply interesting and approaches a familiar (or cool new) subject in a unique way. And with the ultimate goal of just making sense, figuring out what’s true. Whether you want it to be true or not. I would also plug his Waking Up app if you’re at all interested in meditation or his recent episode where he talked all about it made you curious. Meditation in general has made my life so much better over the past 5 years I’ve been practicing it. It’s a lifelong pursuit. The best time to start was when you were 5 years old. The second best time is now

    Disingenuous arguments

    Sam has lots of ideas, but none of them are rooted in anyone else’s reality: he just has these ideas that he thinks are really important and says OK a lot. It’s really not okay.

    Incredibly educational and informative

    Sam is amongst the smartest people I have the priviledge of following and learning from and I relish every opportunity I get to listen a conversation between one of him and his many great guests, on a whole myriad of topics.

    Need this

    In a world where AI hands me content that supports my views, perpetuating single minded tunnel vision, where people attack each other for believing something different from themselves, where social media censors the voices of anyone with a view different than the main stream narrative of the day, I appreciate this podcast for providing me another viewpoint. I don’t always agree with what Sam says but I do like to hear his thoughts. I like that he isn’t afraid to share his views, that he tries to provide data and rationale for his viewpoint, and he does so calmly. After 13 months of a politicized global pandemic where it feels like all sides are nearly hysterical in their polarization, it helps me to hear a calm viewpoint that inspires me to reflect on my own thoughts.

    Often great, but..

    When Sam is on neuroscience or philosophy, he is wonderful. Politics is a whole ‘nother deal...

    Former huge fan, but I quit

    I originally thought Sam was a highly intelligent person, and maybe he is smart in some ways, but over the years I realized this guy just has bad takes on almost everything. He warps everything into these little “thought experiments” that have no bearing on actual reality. He’s xenophobic and fears change. He’s stuck in this ridiculous anti-SJW mindset from 2013, and this leaves him blind to the real injustices which are almost undeniable in society. His involvement with this dorky IDW group was majorly embarrassing. If you want to learn about meditation, he’s okay, but honestly there’s plenty of other resources for mindfulness meditation nowadays.

    Always Worth A Listen

    Regardless of where one decides to stand on any issue, rest assured, the ideas here have been carefully thought on. This host and his guests seem to be genuinely giving it there best go at all times. Plenty of moments where I have considered vastly differing viewpoints and have at the least incorporated those into my ideas and opinions moving forward. Incredibly grateful for the efforts put into this show. Try it, you’ll come back for more!

You get loads of interviews with experts, and I’ve learned so much from tuning in over the years. Keep up the good work!

    Clear thinking, new vocabulary

    Been following him for a decade. Sam things deeply about impactful topics and shares it in his calming voice. His vocabulary varies and is skillfully employed compared to many other shows I listen to.

    Calls From Ricky!

    I enjoy so much the goofy and simultaneously intellectual banter in these calls. And, I think the joke about the sound a monster makes is, actually, quite hilarious. Thank you!!

    Calls from Ricky

    Really enjoying the “Calls From Ricky” shows. I like the contrast between Ricky the clown and Sam’s straight man, but it still manages to be thought provoking, which is Sam’s superpower.
