The soothing sounds of cooler heads prevailing.  They covered a lot.  Including the fact that intelligent people are spreading misinformation.  Already aware they’ll be accused of doing the same.  Sam Harris was able to disagree with his friend Bret Weinstein in this conversation with Eric Topol.  What does he have that Bill Maher and Joe Rogan don’t?
