Description

In this episode of the Making Sense podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Daniel Kahneman at the Beacon Theatre in NYC. They discuss the replication crisis in science, System 1 and System 2, where intuitions reliably fail, expert intuitions, the power of framing, moral illusions, anticipated regret, the asymmetry between threats and opportunities, the utility of worrying, removing obstacles to wanted behaviors, the remembering self vs the experiencing self, improving the quality of gossip, and other topics.

With each episode I discover people and their work I have not have come across before, namely in this episode. Or where ground has previously been covered I find Sam's ideas being consolidated and reaffirmed for myself or his ideas are challenged which develops the discussion further. Wether I agree or disagree with Sam or his guests, this podcast has opened and continues to open my mind, changing the way I think about the world around me. Please never stop providing this invaluable content.

I used to anxiously await Waking Up podcasts. Does anyone else feel for the last maybe 6 months, podcasts have been getting more lethargic? I feel they lack energy, purpose, idk really =(

Augusto Tenorio how many subjects can he talk about before having to re-upload/rehash some earlier ones like the 'why Jihadis hate us & fight us'

Thanks for uploading this, I personally don't care about whether the sound quality on these live events is sub-prime, I would love if you uploaded more of these. The content for me is more important than the sound quality and I think I might not be alone. People that are upset about sound quality don't need to listen

Wow, some duds in the audience questions. When asking a question, probably best to put it in as simple terms as possible

Matt Gillespie there is great difficulty in framing complex ideas concisely. that being said, e=mc^2 is arguably the most consice, complex idea ever expressed. in short, I agree with you.
