Two recent appearances by Sam Harris on NPR. Also, one small segment devoted to discussing letters in response to one of these interviews.
Author Challenges Faith of a “Christian Nation” (Day to Day, Sept 29, 2006)
Religion and Public Policy (Talk of the Nation, Oct 2, 2006)
Letters: Sam Harris’ Attack on Faith (Oct 2, 2006)
Could someone help me out? The first time I ever heard of Sam was through a speech/ Q&A session he did for End of Faith which aired on Book TV. I have not been able to find this anywhere. The entire video must be atleast 45 minutes long. Does someone know what I’m talking about or where I could find this video?
the book tv lecture is not available from cspan anymore unfortunately. i had it archived on my tivo for the longest time since i knew i wouldn’t be able to view it again.
I think you are referring to Sam’s appearance at the University Synagogue/Irvine United Congregational Church on C-Span/Book TV on Feb 6, 2005. The audio track for this lecture was made available on the original Sam Harris website, but apparently was not transferred to this new site. Fortunately I have this lecture, I am more than willing to send the audio files to you if you want to post your email address. Otherwise you might try searching the internet under “Sam Harris, University Synagogue”.
Hope this helps,
Another audio link I came across:
Beyond the Ghetto follows the lives, arts, politics, and community events of gays and lesbians who are both within the traditional North American lesbigay villages and those who are living beyond: from the Vancouver Canada burbs to overseas. We are Beyond the Ghetto, talking from the rainbow’s edge, with your host, Stephen Emery.
Alternatively, you can search within iTunes podcasts for “Beyond the Ghetto”, the latest episode is the interview w/ Sam Harris.
Unfortunately they’ve inserted audio of punk-rock music at different points in the interview. I don’t know what these guys were thinking—but they really fucked this up big time.
This past Friday, Oct 6, 2006, Point of Inquiry had yet another podcast featuring a lengthy interview w/ Sam Harris.
Check out all 3 POI podcasts featuring Sam. They are all excellent.
Sam Harris - Letter to a Christian Nation (October 6, 2006)
Sam Harris - The Mortal Dangers of Religion (April 14, 2006)
Sam Harris - The End of Faith (April 7, 2006)

Hey, thanks for finding and including my interview with Sam on your list. Allow me to upgrade the link to a downloadable mp3 instead of one that streams from our website.
Please visit us at http://www.RationalResponders.com. I think we may possibly represent a means to enact Sams vision more than anyone out there today. We’ve got tons of activist related projects coming down the pike. In the past we’ve mocked Fox news by holding a War on Waster and Christmas, and will return with those events again, we could use your help!
That last post was me, I didn’t know I wasn’t logged in.
Please see the new topic “DOWNLOAD SAM HARRIS AUDIO” for my complete catalog of Sam Harris audio items, all of which can be directly downloaded from the Wiki-Upload site included there.
