In this episode of the Waking Up podcast, Sam Harris speaks with Chris Voss about his experience as a hostage negotiator for the FBI. They discuss different types of hostage crises, along with many of the lessons that apply to negotiating in normal life.
This thread is for listeners’ comments.
Definitely one of the better podcasts. Nice to take a break from the “culture war” and do something outside the box. Entertaining and a few real gems there. Didn’t agree with Voss when he first said that the use of anger wasn’t really of use during negotiation… until he said remember all the times someone got angry with you… and he’s right. You don’t want to be around those kind of people.
