Russell Brand and Sam Harris in Conversation on Topics Such as Faith, Islam and Meditation

  • V interesting recent debate taken from Brand’s “Under the Skin” podcast.
  • Issues debated include the nature of religious faith, militant Islam, consciousness and secularism. Brand is coming from the spiritual viewpoint, whereas Harris is an avowed atheist.
  • They do get bogged down slightly in minor philosophical points (especially in the first half), but after that there is a real honest and frank exchanging of views.
  • Being an academic, Harris is, I feel, the intellectual superior to Brand’s autodidact learning. Still, he does have a lot of interesting things to say.
  • Will be interesting to see what the Reddit community have to say on this video!
