Understanding the But-For Principle of Election Fraud
"Generally in discussing the subject of order fraud. Courts adopt a principle that is called the butt for principle. And the butt four principles simply says, but for this fraud, would the election outcome have been different. That becomes a critical question. So for example, if the fraud is minor and wouldn't have made a difference, even if it could be proved, courts are likely to say, well, it's moot. It doesn't really matter. Even if this were true, it would not have changed the outcome of the election. But this is not what we're dealing with in 2000 meals because the claim is advanced in the movie with a lot of supporting evidence that we are talking about and enormous magnitude of a fraud. So the question is, when that's the case, when you can meet the butt force standard. Canon election result be overturned? Well, as it turns out, the answer to that question is obviously yes. In 2018, an election was overturned. In North Carolina. Now, interestingly in that case, which by the way is mentioned in the movie, the fraud was on behalf of a Republican candidate. It was done by a democratic operative, the fraud was actually organized by a guy named McRae Dallas, a guy recently died, the late mcgray Dallas. And this is a guy who worked for kind of a black left wing group called the bladen improvement association, and he learned all his tactics of ballot trafficking and being guys and are doing all kinds of shenanigans. He learned it from the Democrats, but then he had a fight with them, he broke with them, they refused to hire him, something like that, so he took his services to a Republican candidate Mark Harris. And that then resulted in Harris winning the election narrowly, but when there was an investigation that were admissions that came out of that and the election result was overturned. Overturned by the way, not by a court, but by the elections board. And then there was a new election, Harris decided not to run again. Another guy named Dan bishop ran on the Republican ticket. He won the election, and so that's what happened. But the reason I mention all this is because it simply doesn't follow that we are stuck with a kind of fade accomplish a done deal that somehow because it's happened, nothing can be done. It's not
Fresh update on "harris " discussed on Patriots Beat
"All right, let's talk to your favorite position Alex. We'll talk running backs, all right? And the fact that the Patriots right now for roster locks, we talked about this last week. Damien Harris, assuming he's healthy and can play James White Pierre strong. Those four guys are definitely making the team. We talked to ty Montgomery today. I think that he's got a really good chance of making the team as well. I think they have a role in mind for him. And that's why he's here. Kevin Harris, at least as an outside chance, maybe they end up red shirting him, but they clearly like something out of him to draft him. It's a deep room. It's a room that certainly has a lot of upside as well. I would say, I think there's three guys in there in the younger guys and Harris from Andre and Pierre strong and that have some real talent and real upside for this offense. Is it going, are they going to use these backs? Are they going to use all of them to the point where we're going to see another year of run first offense? I know you all were first on the bandwagon last year with that 2001 type of offense of being a more bully ball style team. Now they have this running back depth. Do you see that continuing? So I don't know about James White. I don't. And I still think they're short of back or two, depending on what happens with JJ Taylor. I really really believe that. Strong is interesting to me because even if he doesn't contribute as a pass catcher, can he be that Dion Lewis change of pace where it's not a bully ball running style, right? It's tossing the ball, get him the outside one on one with a corner and outside linebacker and see if he can go through him or go around him, something like that. I also think, you know, there's a chance that David Harris reminders even said we're both good past catchers in college and neither has been used really much in that role in the NFL. A little bit more so last year. I'm interested to see if those guys catch the ball. In my mind, they have three complete running backs right now. It's less a separation of skill sets than it was in the past. At least when you talk about those top three and then I think James White's a true pass catcher. I think Kevin Harris JJ Taylor true early down backs, although different running styles, right?.
The Whitmer Kidnapping Defendant Who Was Trapped by the FBI
"The indefatigable Julie Kelly has tracked down one of the Whitmer kidnapping defendants. This is the guy who got off. He was exonerated because the jury realized that he had been entrapped by the FBI and Julie has an exclusive interview with this guy. His name is Brandon casar down. But and he's gone through a horrible two year ordeal. Involving losing his job involving incarceration. Of course, the familiar FBI raid, the kind of massive demonstration of power almost a shock and awe type of campaign. So Julie gives a little bit of background. She says that this fellow Brandon cassata was charged along with other defendants, 5 defendants, Adam Fox, Thai garden, Caleb Franks Barry Croft, and a guy named Daniel Harris. These are the people who were charged. Now, what the interview reveals is the sort of naivete of these guys and how they were targets of the FBI from the beginning. And by the beginning, I mean, before the plot was even hatched. That's what's so telling about it. So here's talking now to Julie. And he says, you know, I was kind of locked down under a COVID court. I was stuck in my apartment with most of my family out of state. I was just trying to find people to network with. So this is the COVID frustration and the anger, by the way, at the left and imposing these lockdowns, interestingly, that was a factor here in what got these guys to demonize Whitmer and think, oh yeah, it'd be kind of cool if we so these are big talkers, these are guys who buy and large have difficult lives with not a whole lot going on and they're looking for other like minded people who give them a sense of camaraderie. So what happens is this fellow brand in Casa goes online and in June, a leader of a group called the Wolverine Watchmen, a self styled kind of militia group, basically tells casar that they are inviting him to firearms training in Michigan. Firearm streams. This guy's like, yeah, in lockdown, I wanna get out of the house. Little does he know that this being organized by not a guy named quote big Dan. And guess who big Dan is? An FBI informant. He is in a sense cooking up the plot.

Weekend Mass Shootings Dominate News Coverage
"Killer in laguna Woods, you may not know about. Yesterday afternoon, a 60 year old Asian man, that's the only description I have from the Los Angeles Times, stood up in a luncheon honoring a former pastor at a Taiwanese Christian church in laguna Woods, which is not far from my old home in Orange County. They were welcoming back for a luncheon, Jerry Chen, excuse me, I want to get that Jerry Chandler's the fellow gave the quote the former pastor's name is here somewhere I can't find it, but Tom Kramer, who is the head of the presbytery of Los ranchos. Again, I used to be a member of this Presbyterian. Kramer did not know if the pastor was harmed in the shooting, a pastor clobbered the gunman as he tried to reload with a chair and a bunch of the so called older victims. They were all in their 60s. Those not shot tackle them in hog tied in, but it's a 60 year old Asian man is the killer there. In Harris county, Texas, the more traditional weekend shooting, two young men shooting at each other, wounding three and killing two at a Harris county flea market. At 1 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. So guns are everywhere, The Wall Street Journal, however, wrote about the particular evil of the buffalo shooting. There is a culture of white supremacy in the United States and people need to understand not large, but it definitely evil and it's dangerous because it attracts the unbalance like this 18 year old this was pure evil said Erie county sheriff Garcia in an app summary of the mass murder at a cyber market in Buffalo writes The Wall Street Journal. That appears to be racially motivated. The alleged shooter 18 year old Peyton gendron, the last time you'll hear his name on my show, is another young man possessed by inexplicable hatred.

Fresh update on "harris " discussed on Real Estate Coaching Radio
"And now your hosts, Tim and Julie Harris. We are back. I want to start out by thanking you as I have for the past few shows for all of you who have taken the time and gave us 5 star reviews over on Spotify and iTunes. We certainly appreciate your continued support. It does necessarily warm our hearts when we read the reviews. And I love the reviews in particular where you guys will say what you learned, how it applied to your business and personal life and how you immediately took the information into action because that really is what the heart and soul of this podcast is. It's and I want to educate you motivate you, but ultimately, none of those things education and motivation aren't worth anything unless you're going to take those things and put them into action. And that's what we truly love. And so if you have not yet given us a 5 star review over on iTunes or Spotify, whichever really podcast listening widget you pay attention to, but iTunes really is the mothership of all of them. So please do give us a 5 star review on iTunes. We would certainly appreciate it. It does go a long way to helping us stay in alignment with what our mission is, which is being a service to all of you guys. Now, speaking along those lines, oh, by the way, we are going to this is part three today. 14 shifting market rules. But Julie received an email from one of our great coaching clients and Harris certified coaches. John Weber and Boise Idaho. Yes, and Jonah is also part of our EXP family. I actually saw her post this video as well on her Facebook page and her media. And I wanted to thank John for being so transparent in getting a really important message out there. This was and I could tell she really took this personally. This was an incident where she had a past client. So this is especially for all of you. What most of you, a past client who called and said, you know, I don't know if you remember me or not, but I'm curious about the value of my home. Now, here's the kicker. This particular gentleman had done not one but two transactions with her in the past, she considered him to be a top VIP past client, and yet his message to her, which really resonated with her was, I don't know if you remember me or not. And he was requesting from her a CMA. Now, what's wrong with this picture? What's wrong with this picture is John what her message was, how many of your past clients right now are wondering, that same question, what is my house worth? And are they remembering to call you? Are they wondering whether you remember them or not?.

Brave Republicans Confront DOJ About Whitmer 'Entrapment'
"A handful of Intrepid Republicans, and it's, it shouldn't be a handful. It should be the Republicans in a unified political phalanx. But no, it takes the brave ones to go out front. And here I'm talking about, I'm gonna name them. It's led by Marjorie Taylor Greene, but you've got Scott Perry, Dan bishop, Andrew Clyde, Andy Biggs, bob good, Mary Miller, Paul gosar, Andy Harris, Louie gohmert, Thomas massie Matt Gaetz, well, what are they doing? In the aftermath of the exoneration of two key defendants in the Whitmer kidnapping trial, the pressing attorney general Garland for some specific answers. Now, trying to get answers out of Garland is not an easy business. This is like going to the consigliere of Don Corleone and saying, hey, listen, we're we want to find out more about the mafia. You're actually talking to the mafia. But nevertheless, this needs to be done. And so this is a stinging letter and a demand. Of Merrick Garland copied a Christopher wray, and the questions themselves are telling, let me just read a couple of them. Who within the DoJ and the FBI knew about or was involved in the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer, tell us. Remember, this is a letter being sent by the legislators to the executive branch, which is accountable to the legislative branch. Number two, to what extent would the DoJ and the FBI motivated by the 2020 presidential election to paint political opponents as domestic terrorists specifically Vis-à-vis the plot to kidnap governor Whitmer and the events of the U.S. capitol on January 6th, 2021. In other words, this is not just at the FBI staging orchestrating infiltrating and moving along a plot. This is the FBI timing those events to coincide with an election. So the issue here being raised is the election interference, very important issue because these revelations came to light in early October of 2020.

"Your approach, by the way, because you were a sort of undercover, you were keep California weird or perfectly weird or something like that. And we have some clips here that we can show. Actually, you know what? That's what we'll do. We'll start with that. This will give people a good primer for what you were doing. Cut 90 is some of your handiwork, Joe bob. Let's go ahead and play cut 90. Well, tell me, what's his deal? Should we like, what's his deal? If you don't like it, you're literally talking them out. Wow. You know he just tweeted that Kamala Harris vice presidency was affirmative action. At this point. The guy that gave us this, and he seemed like, I feel like nobody wants to work with Russia. Like, right? Like that's amazing. So tell us what you were doing. What we just saw. So Charlie who set up doing his thing, which was hilarious and I wish I could have seen more of it because I think there was some substantial Duncan on leftist thought there going on at the table, but we were incognito, kind of going around milling around with my black beanie on my sunglasses, my black shirt kind of just confused and aloof of everything happening at the protest. I think there are people protesting, but I don't think there was definitely some Nazi name calling going on, yes. Well, so I was just asking questions. Like I wasn't going out there to like stump people on their dumb ideas. I was just asking questions and letting people talk themselves. And a lot of the footage that I think we're going to see eventually. They're cutting it up and making it look all nice and pretty. Is people talking themselves into circles. We had one girl, by the way, who was adamantly chasing us down afterwards saying, you need to delete my footage. I have the right to have you delete all of my footage. You don't have the right to film me. And you know, we didn't get into the stole her essence or something. Yeah, the legality of like, hey, you knew that you were being filmed, so no, we don't have to do whatever you

Dale Wilcox: Getting to Know the Immigration Reform Law Institute
"All right, hey everybody. Great show today. One of the biggest problems we've got going on right now and it's the least reported problem that we have right now is the problem we're having on the border. Our southern border. Well, I guess it depends on if it's a problem depending on your perspective because on Dallas, not a it's not a problem to the Biden administration. In fact, the Biden administration, if you judge by vice president Harris, has no idea where the southern border is, much less wanting to fix it. As ranking member of the House judiciary committee and being on that committee for a long time, our primary focus in our committee was immigration law and I can tell you that what's going on on the border right now is a travesty. What is happening is the national security risk and we are in we've got to fix this. And the mainstream media will not talk about this. We're going to have a chance to talk today about our immigration problem and I'm excited to have Dale Wilcox from here from immigration reform law institute. Got a good friend of both of ours, Tom hollands, who's been on this show many times in Tom and I go back a long ways, let's just say, as you well know, folks here listen to podcast Tom's a little bit passionate about this issue. So he works with this group and Dale and his group have been out show fighting in the front lines this bringing lawsuits against the Biden administration winning these lawsuits. And I just want to put it today this we get are able to use your listening to this podcast. I want you to put a perspective on just how bad our southern border has become and a little less than 14 months. He's getting ready to get
Biden Administration Revisits Failed Obama Middle East Policies
"Now, congressman, I got a new column up over at The Washington Post on the fact that we have a new axis. Russia, Khamenei and Iran and she and China. And being critical of Putin is being like critical of Mussolini in 1938. What about tojo and Hitler? And we've got these other two adversaries. You've recommended steps to help Taiwan. What about helping Israel and the other states in the Arab partnership with Israel threatened by Iran? Well, this is critical to you because what have we seen in the last few days? And something that is really unprecedented or at least in my lifetime I've never seen there was basically a Saturday Night Live sketch that came out of Saudi Arabia criticizing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. And I think that gives you a window into just how far the relationship between the United States and our traditional Arab allies in the Middle East has trade. And that is a function of the fact that the Biden administration has pursued a resurrection of the Obama Iran deal. And of course, by doing that, they are messing up all of the progress we made in the Trump administration with the Abraham accords.
Multiple Injured in NYC Subway Shooting
"It seems that a would be terrorist, and I use that word intentionally, not because we know anything about this individual, but when you try to inflict mass crime, mass murder upon a population for, let's say, any sort of other irrational reason, it's nothing short of terrorism. And the police are soon going to give an update on the subway shooting in Brooklyn. Here's what we know. What we do know is that an individual wearing a vest came onto the subway and started shooting indiscriminately and had some sort of devices that were detonated. We think these are just smoke devices or devices that would emit some sort of a smoke screen or some sort of a distraction. We don't know any more than that. But let's go to cut 43. Harris faulkner reporting play cut 43. Brooklyn subway station is a major crime scene this hour. Earlier this morning, we know multiple people were shot doesn't seem running through some kind of smoke. And what we've learned in just the last few minutes is really critical information. We don't exactly know how it will tie in, but we do know that now a huge portion of Brooklyn has been put on alert. Our phone started to go off momentarily. At least 16 people were injured, including 8 who were shot when a suspect set off a smoke grenade and unleashed a fire, a gunfire of on a Brooklyn subway. I've been right near the subway station, know exactly where it is. The gunman possibly disguises an MTA construction worker wearing a gas mask launched his bloody assault around 8 30 on a Manhattan bound N train on the 36th street station in sunset park, where authorities later discovered several undetonated devices.

"Year both covid-19 and current events have prompted us to re-examine everything from how we gather together while social dancing to how we might best represent and support diversity. These concerns are just as pertinent to businesses as they are to culture and society today. I'd like to welcome virtually dead Tori Rainer and Amanda Dwyer attorneys who practice corporate law at Harris Beach to discuss key updates and business law during this Unforgettable year. Welcome Tori and Amanda will start by talking about how many business meetings including this one have migrated online due to covid-19. What does New York state law have to say about shareholder meetings in this state of emergency. Well short answer is that New York has provided corporations with the ability at least on a temporary basis to hold shareholder meetings virtually rather than in person. So by way of background the, New Jersey Business Corporation law or b c l which governs all corporations formed in New York state historically has required that all meetings of shareholders be held in person depending on the corporation bylaws. The board would have the ability to set the location for the meeting but the statute specifically refers to a location. So the physical in-person meeting has been required now in recent years many states such a Delaware began to change their corporate statute to permit corporations to hold virtual only annual meetings where the meaning to be held entirely virtually whether by conference call or video call app or online platform or you know, some sort of similar technology or to permit what are called hybrid meeting and they're the meeting must have some kind of physical presence but shareholders could participate virtual life. So as long as there is some physical meeting held somewhere shareholders can dial in or do video call or some other sort of virtual participation dead. Now New York hasn't gone to Virtual only route until now in October 2019. Did BCL was amended to permit hybrid meetings. So again, the meeting would have to some physical presence but I could participate virtually then of course covid-19 and all non-essential Gatherings of individuals were discouraged or prohibited. So even that limited physical presence became problematic for companies that were having to hold.

We always women factor authentication conditional access, which means we can spot rules for for instance Geo Location. Does she use her? Can only on Acadian from New York State. You don't expect them to be traveling at the star, so anyhow, From unknown geographic locations our block. So there are many security controls were able to put in place to help retire regulated data and information and containerize it in the cloud as opposed to where we find on premises. Most organizations is and really don't have a great handle. On where regulating data exists on their platforms, so this way to get it into onto a platform index containers that we can isolate protect for that more readily since an opportunity. Yeah and for smaller companies I think that the remote pieces going to be more of a problem. You know the risk they have with their remote workers is. You know they're gonNA low data that they're working with on their laptop, which may or may not be encrypted. They're going to be doing a number of things so. If, you're sort of taking an ad hoc approach. It's GonNa be problematic, but if you're doing the sorts of things that Mike just. then. You're going to see this as an advantage and you may actually find a reduction in cost by moving your data systems to the cloud, because they don't have to have the same resources internally managing it, you could theoretically improve some of the capabilities that that information by your workforce. And reduce total expenditures by allowing people to job, share or work from home, or have you know so you know to? Mike Point. There's opportunity in here. Do it right and I think that the the the last bit to this really is this making organizations really reconsider particularly around contingency planning? What do they have in place to deal with situations of catastrophic weather, incidents or pandemics or other types of things that maybe heretofore? They've never really considered because it wasn't applicable. I all, it's not going to happen to me so in thinking about the rise ransomware, you know if you have a sound plan and program in place, you may be A. Better, position to navigate a ransomware situation, or a pandemic or something, because you have a sound and defined plan, you'll know how to respond and react according to what you've defined the depart of your risk profile for your business and how you deal with that I think that's that will be from from my perspective. They potential very positive outcome from this covid nineteen pandemic gets people think differently about their business, and how to maintain it over the course of time. Probably, agree with that perception Mike. We've been talking to clients about thirty sixty ninety day plans and the first thirty days every organization was scrambling to. Keep the workforce productive their businesses solvent. We ask that in the next sixty days they look at what has worked and what hasn't worked in charge. Think about long term strategies for how they can in that file. Ninety days one hundred twenty days reimagined re architect organization to develop higher resiliency business continuity plans disaster recovery plans resiliency redone in all of the capabilities that they need to address potentially a second wave of covid. Hopefully you know, prepare for the worst hope for the best kind of mentality. As well as Things that would just generally help them in the long term in terms of from. From any future..

I'm joined by Joan Sullivan Harris speech partner and leader of our government compliance investigations. Practice Group. Joan. Thank you for joining us again today. How is the pandemic affecting the lobbying community in New York? Thank you for having me on again. I just want to say that. The lobbying community consists of many businesses both large and small healthcare systems not for profits. All of whom are grappling with the covert nineteen outbreak. Just like the rest of us as we all know. No one is immune from the business interruption and that includes the regulator which is Joint Commission on public ethics. So they're not now operating remotely As well They've done a few things In reaction to the crisis one of which they've extended some of the time to submit lobbying filings so they were filings for the january-february period that were due on March fifteenth. And they've now extended that deadline until March thirty first. So if you are a filer I would suggest checking with the JAYCO website to make sure Whether there are any further extensions the other thing I've noticed in reaction to the current crisis is I've gotten some questions about gift giving by registered lobbyists. So there's definitely been an increase in the spirit of giving Many of these companies are very generous. And they WANNA help in any way. They can to the relief efforts by giving to their state or county agencies that support our community however onto the lobbying act..

"Apologies to those of you in line is the way karma works apparently. Karma date. Various forms of meditation exist and just curious are they all created equal? Or do you have specific advice on? Well, they're not that there are different forms, which have different purposes. So there. To use the Buddhist framework here there are there are concentration practices where the goal is to focus one pointedly on on some object could be the breath, it could be a candle flame, or you know. Inner visual ization and the goal. There is really to focus so one pointedly that you notice nothing else. So thought thoughts really are the antecedents of that practice? If you're thinking, you're not focusing, and you're you're you're failing in that moment. And that kind of concentration becomes a tool that can be used for practice like mindfulness. But that isn't it's not the same as a practice mindfulness mindfulness as much more about you need some concentration, but it's much more simply noticing what is arising without having any expectation that any thing should or shouldn't arise and that begins to change the character of your experience, and you begin to have various insights, but I concentration practice is much more narrowly focused thing, which is a useful skill. But it's just. It is the thing that becomes in the end of the day. It can seem like an artifice is more like a drug experience because when concentration really works. It has become a novice with very pleasant states of mind, and you kind of have this sort of heroin addict like attachment to the pleasantness of meditation. But then it's it's transitory when you're no longer concentrated. You're no longer getting that high and so the so the other type of practice is called insight BRAC, which mindfulness is the technique and there it's not about prolong any specific state. It's about about actually seen what is common to all states of consciousness, and therefore no longer clinging to one of the things that's common their impermanent, and you're no longer cling into the highs or pushing away the loaves I'm gonna soom maybe wrong, but I'm gonna -ssume that under girding. Your question is kind of sense of what kind of meditation should. I be doing. And I guess what I would say to you is at the beginning. There can be a real sense of like wanting to try everything which I think is cool. I think you should try a bunch of things and see what speaks you what tradition. What's slave meditation speaks you the most? But then I would stick with one thing because if you're jumping around too much for too long really can't get a clear clean signal of what what's working, and I would do it for a little while a couple of years and see what the benefits are get grounded one tradition before you go flitting around too much soaring to bring this to a close. But thank you all for coming. It's really honored. That was a lot of fun big thanks to Sam for doing that. And big thanks to the folks at the screwball cultural center in Los Angeles for hosting us that they're truly beautiful facility. Okay.

"Yes. Do I see some of the hypocrisy of the, you know? Of the folks that you're referencing. Sure. But I still think I still think it's it's a it's a better thing for the world that we're seeing meditation seep into areas that are way way way way outside the Buddhist ghetto. Yeah. My question is about well have either of you ever incorporated? Sensory deprivation tanks into your practice. And if not what are your thoughts on that. As far as depriving your senses and most of the practices to be aware of sounds and sights. It's been a very long time since I've done it. I my friend. Joe Rogan is a big believer. Actually, you didn't. Okay. Texting? And that was in LA because going to go on his podcast, and he said come why don't you come a couple hours, really get my sensory deprivation tank. And I said, I don't wanna do that. And he called me chicken. And so I did it. How was it? My. My question would have been how often do you change the water? If you're using Joe's water. It's salt water. So. Suppose cleaner. I don't know. It's like the Dead Sea. I did find it pretty powerful. Yeah. But I don't know I need. How long were you in? I was in there. I think he only made me do it for an hour. So let's still something. Yes. Nothing. I did I did find that. You know, what I need to do more before I can develop a real opinion about it. But I can I can I could get a glimpse of the value would just got the signal down to our last questions..

"Just just give me those leftover drugs. Exactly. I, you know, they're they're really interesting. Studies going on right now at Johns Hopkins of using Silla silent on long term meditators. And and I have friends who are experienced meditation. Teachers who lead retreats that mix Iowa ska with meditation. And so I'm quite convinced that there's a lot of their there. But I'm not as a public figure going to strongly recommend it nor have I done it personally because it might entail. Either more panic attacks or divorce or both. Briefly. I have not done I go, but I know many people who have it's very in vogue now and people are claiming to get a lot of benefit from it. And I certainly don't doubt that I think that the most significant benefit I got from doing psychedelics back in the day. It's been it's been many years since I've done any anything like that more than a decade since I've done any psychedelic. But what what I got from them, which I couldn't have gotten. I don't think I could have gotten otherwise, I I was certainly not tempting to get it. Otherwise is the conviction that it was possible to have a radically different experience than I was tending to have. And it sounds like you already have that conviction because you're already going to sit ten day retreats. That's not to say psychedelics couldn't be useful for you. And there are certainly people who would argue that they're they're further benefits than just being convincingly advertised to that there are other states of consciousness that you'd rather inhabit than the one. You're into. But the reality is that whatever psychedelic you take no matter how good the trip it will wear off. Right is impermanent by its very nature doesn't give you. It's not quite the same thing. As building a skill that, you always have recourse to and there's the other part, which is that it is the experience you have on any of these drugs is somewhat haphazard, no matter how assiduously you control your your sentence. At in me, you can you can have the exact same set and the exact same set in and have two very different experiences. One being absolutely sublime in one being heroin -ly awful. And it's in the end. I mean, the reason why I stopped taking psychedelics more or less totally is for me. There was it's felt like a kind of psychological Russian roulette. I mean, it was just like I had. No, I had no way of expect. Eating what I was going to get. Because again, I I couldn't control. The variables that seem to matter. Dan earlier you'd mentioned like the bad marketing or the flowery message that meditation had in the past and like in my perspective, though, there seems to be something more peer in honest about the peace. Love the hippie approach to it the wearing the world's long hair like Sam did not to be cynical. But it just seems to be somewhat dishonest or like when you hear these CEOs make these ridiculous salaries Milton about like, oh, yes they met at team. They have guided meditations and stuff like that. So I mean is there sort of like a legitimate practitioner versus an illegitimate practitioner, and like, how can we nudge, you know, the people in power towards more, you know, giving up their possessions type direction, meditation, so. Look, you know, it's been a big challenge for the traditional Buddhist community. I. I consider myself a Buddhist. So it's a big challenge for the traditional Buddhist community to have. Their beloved practice spread out to the masses. I always joke that. We would suspend so many years assiduously sending you know, good wishes out to the world. May you be happy may be safe? But turns out there was an asterisk all along. Which is if you do it like me, and look we could take issue with the way some high profile meditators choosing to leave their lead their lives. But I'm still of the view that the end of the day more mindfulness is better than less mindfulness. So I'm not gonna trash talk in less Uday who say take up the practice of not gonna get into the business of trash talking her nitpicking every public meditated unless I I think. think they're doing demonstrable harm in the world..

"It seems like a lot of the ailments that plagued humanity are this same types of ailments that arrest loose mind experiences. We fluctuate from war to peace to polluting the environment to trying to clean up the environment than polluting it again to. It's just chaos, and we don't quite know where we're going as species, I'm just wondering if you guys think that's a helpful metaphor to to you where we're at. And do you think there's some kind of collective meditative state that we could we could reach some kind of way that we could structure society or some of our institutions that take some. That take mindfulness and meditation and those and what that can bring you the level of awareness that can bring you into account if that makes any sense, it doesn't take long spending time in the meditation world before you hear claims about how meditation we'll fix everything. It will surprise you to hear that. I don't believe that. I think however that if we see a broad societal embrace of the practice. There will be salutory changes. If we had the same. Proportion of the population practicing, mindfulness that currently engages in physical exercise. I think we've probably see real impact on things like. Road rage. Bullying type of comments you see and social media. The quality of our politics. I don't think it would make everything barking unicorns. But I do think you would start to change things. Maybe ten percent at a time. There harris. So so I I do actually think I'm not a utopian by nature. But I do think that broad embrace of mindfulness could make a difference. How much I don't. It's interesting to realize that we have virtually no norm around mental training like mental training is still a totally esoteric concern. And yet physical training is is just an absolute norm where it's impossible to doubt, the utility of whether you exercise a lot or not there's nobody who's living in doubt as to whether or not there's something to be done to be physically better off most of the time. And it seems should it seems obvious even just thinking of it in physical terms, the brain as an organ, which changes depending on how you use it. And we're training ourselves all day long based on how we use our attention to fixate on various things, whether it's social media or so much of it now is is driven by the phone. We got in our pockets and. You can get better at doing anything you care about you can get better at having conversations with people you can get better at in your relationships, you've your marriage can get better. The thing you're doing by default is rarely the best possible version of that thing. And when you this becomes so obvious in athletics because you're learning to play a new sport that you don't know how to play and you're not in that in shape for that sports say, and so everything you do is wrong. Right. But most of what we are doing with our live go through school, and you get to a point where they say, okay. There's no more school for you in this on this topic. So you're done now get a job. And there's no notion of mental training the on that you're just basically who you are trying to figure out how to live a meaningful life after that and the traditions out of which practices like meditation. Come a very different picture of what? Life. What's possible in terms of the comfortable here in your own skin as a as a human being navigating social space with other human beings. I think if if we just acknowledged that emotional and moral development continues throughout life, and even in predictable ways, if you if you apply attention in certain ways, or you think or you just forget about meditation. Just reframing situations conceptually can do enormous work in terms of how you feel. It's like road rage. Is the perfect example. That's a it's a it's a cliche that we've all become right with we've all experienced the saying, we're just magically you're in a car and somebody does something in front of you or just driving too slow and a part of your personality, emerges that simply does not emerge in other circumstances when you're not surrounded by glass and metal you never never comes out of you. In an elevator with other people right unless you're total sociopath. But you're seeing the safety and relative privacy of your car all of a sudden your day Hussein and mindfulness is useful there, but it just reframing the person who just cut you off maybe on on on route to some medical emergency..

"Experience of now you're in the presence of some kind of emergency. But how long do you want to suffer the results of that hormonal hijacking of your awareness, and what we tend to do is we keep these these emotions alive in our thoughts for much. Much longer than their useful. And it's just one of these truths. You can notice about the nature of of the mind, and you really can only notice it by learning to meditate if you don't get lost in thought about the reason you have to be angry or fearful or anxious or whatever it is. You actually can't maintain that emotion for more than a few seconds at a time. It's impossible to stay angry. No matter what it is. I mean, no matter how grave the injustice that merits anger. It's simply impossible to stay angry for an hour much less day, so becoming aware of the mechanics gives you a choice in the end, you can just you you can decide. Well, how long do I wanna be energized in this way? But this stream of thought, and I think most of us given that ability will want to get off the Ribe far earlier than we do. But I'm not I wouldn't say that negative emotion is is never. Appropriate or never useful. I think it's been classically negative emotions like anger or fear. I think occasionally that we need we need that energy is just it's just you know, what you do with. It is is something you you want to be able to wisely. Choose. Yeah. I the more I practice in my for myself. I the more increase the the more convinced I become of the disability of things like anger. I agree with Sam that there is a galvanizing quality to it in the face of pretty much everything we talk about on the news. But. I don't find that. That is the most constructive emotion out of which to act. Sam talks about this. I don't you probably don't even remember saying this. But I quote you on this all the time that that. We we experienced anger, and then we re up at through compulsive neurotic thinking, but if you can cut down on that on what samples the half life of anger, the amount of damage you can do in an hour of anger versus two minutes when that reduction is just incalculable, and I've just found that for me cutting down that has been a huge game changer. It's not to say that I never experienced anger. I spent I spent time in anger today. But and so, and I don't think it's the type of thing we should engage in much of self-laceration over because we're experiencing it. But I do think it in my own experience. Having now investigated at length. I don't see much use for it beyond what Sam described the in terms of like taking action in extreme situation. Thank you. Ignace thanks for being here. Big fan of both the questions taking things on a little bit of a different direction. But it's not a perfect analogy. But if you were to look at the human race is somewhat of a hive mind, so we're collective consciousness..

"Hey, guys. I I wanna thank you for getting me to meditate Sammy sparked my interest many years ago, and then you're up finally got me to establish a practice and eventually go on retreat. I know you guys are big fans of I m s and spirit rock as recommendations. But for someone like myself, I found those prohibitively expensive. So I turned to the going Cova pasta those ten day retreats, and because they're free, and you can donate a which I do to your podcast. It's just like that in that regard. So I was wondering if you had any opinions on the going courage Frey as it contracts to the other retreats, I know there's walking meditation and you only do forty five minutes. Max, I looked at the schedules a little bit wondering just if you had any opinions on their methodology, and perhaps any alternative recommendations that something might be more affordable. Well, what I would say, but I m s spirit rock to retreat centers that you read. Referenced one is called the insight meditation society based in central Massachusetts Joseph Goldstein lives. Spear rock is. North of Marin, I think they're they're kinda sister organizations that I believe they have scholarships. So we do so that I think is worth investigating because I need to keenly aware of the expense. And so they'll actually charge people with means more and as a way to subsidize others to go. I think it's really kind of beautiful. So I would look into that. But every you know, everything I've heard about going retreats is that they're great. So I think you're in good hands. Good luck. Hello. Thank you for being here. I have a question for both of you given that you're both seasons. Meditators curious. If your thoughts have shifted regarding the value of emotions, specifically negative ones. Well, they might have shifted. But I think shifting back. Briefly imagined that expressing anger may actually be a good thing in certain contexts. What do you think of reciprocally? But no, I think there is I think negative emotion is certainly appropriate and useful in certain contexts. I think it's also useful to get over very very quickly. I think so I think it meant anger can be energizing outrage. Moral outrage can be energizing fear can be energized. Invent fear is totally appropriate. You know, if you're in a situation of potential physical violence say or a lion gets out of the cage at the zoo is totally appropriate to have the full adrenaline is d-.

"We want that long while QNA's. So it might be the moment to transition to that. It's a brave young gentleman. I'm niko. Thanks for coming in chatting about meditation. I guess my question is when you've gone on these long retreats, and I guess Purtill you Sam who's been away for ten years going on these retreats on and off. What point did you decide this time to come back given that meditation mindfulness is such a critical part mental health, and if you were in those moments of mindfulness being super happy, mentally when when you say, hey, you know, what's actually tend to end this and come back. Well, I was writing and originally I thought it was going to be writing fiction, and if you're writing fiction, nobody cares that you dropped out of school and didn't make much of your academic career. But the moment you transition to nonfiction all of a sudden, it becomes highly relevant. How you know anything? So I decided I just had it. I couldn't keep just sitting retreats and being entirely self-taught to write what I wanted to write. And it was very useful to go back to school to do it because I was not had that point all of the liabilities of being self taught in every area that was relatively at that point apart from detention, and now I just have some of the liabilities of being self taught. First of all, thank you guys very much for doing what you're doing. I think like what you're doing in the public sphere. And your individual ways is immensely helpful. For people like me and probably people here. My question having to do with meditation is how often you Bledsoe in your practice, and how do you deal with that? If at all. Wanna take sure with the caveat that I'm not a meditation teacher? I'm just a guy writes about meditation sometimes, and that Sam knows a lot more about this than I do with that caveat. I think plateauing or the perception of plateauing quite common and probably not that useful to get too hung up on. Our mutual friend and my meditation teacher, I was introduced to by SAM's got him Joseph Goldstein. He's been on sans podcast at least twice which I recommend to everybody. Because those are rate interviews just seen often talks about this habit. We have playing what he calls the practice assessment tapes where we're just obsessing about the state of our practice right now. And have we plateaued or has our concentration level, actually, maybe diminished is this whole thing wasted time. I- helpless case, blah, blah, blah. This is just. To put it in Buddhist terms. The classical hindrance called doubt, not doubt in the positive sense doubt in my line of work as journalists is quite positive with this doubt majority, which is this quagmire this quicksand of. Useless self questioning. And so I would just put that flag out there for you to to be aware that a certain amount of practice assessment is healthy and might be worth talking to a teacher. But in my experience, this can turn into rheumatism spot spirals that are entirely unconstructive. And to know that the way Abraxas goes over time is, you know, some sometimes based on whatever factors exaggerates factors your life. Your ability to concentrate, isn't that good or maybe actually you feel like you're not able to apply to lessons of meditation off the cushion and the rest of your life. There are many factors that go into that. But my experience over time, it's sort of wavy line. But it does kind of go in the right direction. Thank you. Thanks Ariston Harris for sharing this with us. Dan, I wake up to you on my you're my weekend home..

"Did you get your own? I can drag back. That's so the question is what is the aspect that you thing you emphasize different aspect here? Which is the thing that you were saying before could can be seen on the on the subway, which I agree with, but it's a different thing. Or no thing at all. So this is really the truth door versus the useful door utility door. There was no guarantee that scene the character of your mind more clearly, which is the same more accurately more. Truthfully would be useful. We could live in a universe where it would destabilize you somewhere. Right. It could be an may. In fact, be bad for some people. And I think they're probably people who certainly people who shouldn't do intensive retreats. I think that's can exacerbate certain psychological conditions. I think there's trauma. Yeah. There's a enemy. Demean that is that it is something you should talk to a professional before. So then there is a very small literature on people who feel like they have been harmed by doing intensive practice because they just thrown in the deep end of the pool and didn't swim. Well, but that those are certainly minority cases. But if you get a group of two hundred people together, there's very likely going to be one person for whom it was a bad idea to do an intensive retreat. I guess is conceivable that's true of daily practice. But I think it's very unlikely that sitting in the middle of your life for twenty minutes and paying attention as we just did would be bad for anyone. But if I guess the disclaimer is valid if you find that it seems like it's not doing anything. Good for you. Then or doing something bad for you. Then you should consult a psychotherapist who knows about these things and many now do mindfulness is has invaded the psychotherapy. Puta community, and it's understood by many many of them, but they're just is a fact that scene. Certain features of consciousness more clearly seems to be very helpful psychologically, in many ways doesn't help everything. I mean, you can still at whatever level of stability. You are in the practice use. You're still going to spend most of your time lost in thought. And then you are hostage to whatever. The character of your thoughts are so if you if you're on your thinking, well, then you're probably still in most of the time. But it's PA is possible to punctuate that with a very clear scene of some surprising facts about consciousness and one is that consciousness it self just the sheer fact of knowing anything whether it's visual perception or an internal appearance like a thought that condition of knowing in and of itself doesn't feel like a self. It doesn't feel like I doesn't feel like the subject that most people think is riding around in their heads. Having the thoughts and the experiences and appropriating everything from this position of being a a subject inside the head and is possible to recognize that and that is freeing in a fairly radical way all of the high falutin language, you get from the contemporary traditions. For the most part is anchored to that kind of insight that the ego is an illusion or the self is an illusion or the duality subject object perception is an illusion and it can be a very ordinary realization. It doesn't have to come with all the pyrotechnics of kind of psychedelic experience. If you don't have to feel like you're on acid in order to have that that insight, but what that does is. It does does radically interrupt this identification with thought and with and with all of the the things that follow from being identified with which all the mediocre emotions that play us so much of the time one way to to get this is with Sam was sang before when he was guiding us in meditation. I had us just listened to the sounds in the room..

"Where you're just if it's if it's depressing thought, you're depressed, if it's a happy thought, you're happy. If it's a fearful thought, you're afraid, and you're just being played and just subsumed in each moment by these images and these sentences that. In many cases, are totally superfluous. And this this is an experience that I often have I walk out on stage like this. And I notice a tend to drink a lot of water at events like this. I notice there's water, and they'll be a voice in my head as I'm not schizophrenic. So it's actually my voice, it's not somebody else's voice. But I'll think oh there's water there. But who am I telling right? I I can see the water. There's there's there's no one else. These to be informed about. So most of our is not to say that we don't need thoughts for anything. But so much of our conversation with ourselves is deeply superfluous. I agree and from personal experience. You know, there's a there's a great writer. I don't know if you think he's right. But I think great Stephen bachelor who writes books about food ISM from the perspective of an atheist, although it's a little bit redundant because there's no God and Buddhism anyway. But. He has said, and I'm probably not going to quote, this exactly. But that if you look long enough into your own mind, you'll see a murderer and a rapist, you will see the capacity we all have for all sorts of things beautiful things ugly things. And that's okay. Actually that is part of the process. The scene of the craziness. How serious it is how shameful. It is. How scary it is. This is what we're doing. This is the business. This is at least part of this is the aspect that. I at first at least emphasize because I think it is so useful to see this stuff. So that it doesn't own you. It's good to to break the habit, which you emphasize in probably both books, but having just read your your current one. You do it a lot there, which is this judgement that comes naturally someone who's trying to learn to meditate, which is the moment you notice your lost. And thought you've been distracted for five minutes or whatever. While you're thought you were meditated you've been thinking about lunch, or or replaying some conversation your head and the moment, you notice that it's very common to have an additional moment of judgment about that leg. I was supposed to be meditating. Why am I going to do this? And yet you skillfully reframe that as that's a moment of. I mean, that's that's one. It's actually working hashtag winning Charlie. Sheen says. And I really do. I mean, an incredibly important thing to know. And I think it is what allows people to many people to do this. Because so many of us believe the story. We're telling ourselves about how we could never meditate because you don't understand my mind here, this whole time my mind is so busy that I could never do this. I call it the fallacy of uniqueness because we think that we have this kind of sewage pronounce so we generous. Know lunacy that only we have at that is that this is the human condition we evolved on the savannahs for threat detection and for finding sources of buzzer. And for a racing mind. And this is this is the if we weren't all like this wouldn't need meditation. Now, currently this is like ten years ago when when did we I made I believe? I believe the Jesus t-shirt thing was like two thousand six and I think the when did you set your first retreat? I didn't two thousand ten I think. Yeah. So I think that you to nine so you so now this is a it's actually part of your job now. Now, you have designed your life. So that you are you have to meditate. I mean, this is this is this is a great family business. Great gig yet. Yeah. Yeah. Just want to put a pin in the fact that you have aided my question..

"It owns you. And so that moment where the conversation the my inner conversation that chatter had come wave way volume came way down that was really interesting and led to thirty six hours of some of the curious happiness I've ever experienced. And then it went away as things too. But I came away from that retreat with in. This is a loaded phrase word rather in your present Sam, but I came away from that retreat with a lot of faith in the practice confidence that this is not like, you know, the mental version of hacky sack that just something that hippies due to pass the time that this is real right, right? You know, that's that's a fine. News of faith. I'm not allergic to the word. It's confidence that you are not uniquely cursed that this this sort of inter landscape. It has been well mapped by other people. And and described you if you if you perform this experiment on yourself, you will have similar results it it seems to take. So before you went on retreat. You you been meditating? Did you retrospectively feel that you really had never been meditating before you did the retreat or did you because I had that experience where once I did a ten day retreat. I realized that for the previous year I had just been sitting cross legged and thinking is. And I think I had never had never broken through to anything other than you know, boy feels good to sit here with beads on. I want those pictures. Look, I actually think that that's a again, I'm going to I'm going to revert back to realize counter program into the message that yes one minute days. Yes. So I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna get back on the program because I actually think that there are like any skill any any field of endeavor, there are levels to it. And if you sit and try to meditate and notice the become distracted and start again, and again, and again that is meditation it's meditation and your deriving a lot of benefit from that. Because every time you see, oh, crazy or the craziness has less power over you. And that can happen for anybody at anytime anywhere. And so I don't I will not back away from that. I will however concede that for sure that you. Once you put yourself in a container where everything about it is designed to support your meditation practice, you have no other responsibility being fed. Housed. Instructed that you can reach levels that are for for me, at least unavailable on the subway. So I've come full circle on this where I feel like the thing that is most important to glimpse in the practice that many people only tend to find on after intensive retreat is the thing that you can see on the subway. There actually is no connection to retreat disappears. Ultimately, and it need only last a moment to be extremely valuable. Let's talk about the crazy side. Into that for because there the thing about meditation one of the many things meditations so interesting to me is that you can you can emphasize different aspects. So I tend to emphasize the aspect of seeing how crazy you are. Because because I hear from people all the time say I can't meditate because my minds too busy. And so I I've made it my business to tell those people know, you are meditating. The fact that you're noticing that your mind is busy is success. What you're calling a failure is success. And here's why it's a success because every time you see distracted. You are you notice something about your mind, which is that you're crazy? And then the crate then went anger or distraction, or whatever ambushes you later in the day. You have a better you have better odds of not being owned by you emphasize, a different aspect, which I think is. I think is this is the thing you were about to say that you can see on the subway. Which I agree with you. But it's hard for people to grass, right? The talk you write about this brilliantly in waking up which I've read like maybe four times. But I think it's hard for people to understand what it is that you are emphasizing. So maybe make a run at that. I know your questions, but now I realize I'm outgunned here. I'm sitting next to a professional journalist. This was bound to happen. How many minutes did I laugh? Well, let's let's talk about the crazy for a second. Because the crazy sounds like an exaggeration..

"There are many levels to the bed marketing, but in just to dress the level in which you're speaking is that just comes with all this cultural baggage that for people like me is deeply off pudding. And as I have written about the fact that my parents were hippies and maybe go to a yoga class when I was little and the teacher didn't like my tough skin pants, and maybe do sunset, you -tations in my tidy whitey's and created a life long to anything like that. And so I really hated that stuff and meditation just never even came on my radar screen till I started seeing science and that there is. And we have to be careful we talk about this because it's still in its early stages and some of the scientists, frankly, just not of a high quality. But I think I think we can safely say is that it strongly suggests that meditation can confer a long list of tantalizing health benefits. And that to me was really what started to change my mind and meeting people like you plus interesting because it seems to me that there two doorways into this at least two and they're not they're not the same. And so the first that you've just described is the the usefulness of the practice, and so then that extends now, as we know at least some medical claims that seem fairly well-founded, but there's another door, which is the door. I took which is really the still what I emphasize in my thinking about this, which is just the door of what is true about the mind from the first person side. So what is it actually like to be you? If you. Pay attention and win. What you find? If you're if you're new to this practice, and even for the longest time is that it's very hard to pay attention just get into the place where you can notice anything is quite a feat and takes takes training, but you can spend you can you can go through that door and not necessarily care that much about the benefits. And I often think that I would still be interested in meditation. Even if it were not good for you. You know, even if it were a little battery their people who get into sports, which are clearly not all that healthy. But they still love the sport. And this is a kind of intellectual sport in a way, which I think you you can become fascinated by even if you're not sold that it's that it reliably reduces stress or anything else that seems to do. I agree. My intuition as a storyteller also Rak Titian, and now as what sort of semi physicians used the word evangelist for the practices that it's I think more widely attractive to talk about the benefits the bigger door. But you many people quickly get to what you're talking about. Which is getting inexperience of what our minds, and therefore our lives are actually about and that comes of. For many of us practitioners becomes extremely interesting. I also think as it pertains to the science that look I think as an endeavor it's very good field of interest. But for me as a as an evangelist, the scientists useful as a way to get people interested in might not otherwise be interested. But it's doesn't have much of a bearing on your actual practice like as I like to say that you might start meditating because you see the brain scans. But you don't keep meditating as you think your prefrontal cortex would look different different in it. And then FM right now, you can't meditating because you're to yourself and others. And that is the metric that matters. It occurs to me. Now actually do lead you to that being? Yeah. They can still being fined. Rather regular not you. Our wives are both. Here's if we want to flesh out this part discussion. Get a Mike to them curse me. We might want to just sit for two or three minutes. Just so that everyone knows what we're talking about. So many people in this room have at least had some experience with meditation. But if not let's just do it for two minutes. So we are on the same page. So you might close your eyes. You don't have to close your eyes, but many people like to do it that way and sit a little more erect just comfortably. And.

"But this one is much more topical about meditation and lots of related issues. So I really enjoyed taping. This and hanging out with salmon on AKU and my wife backstage beforehand, and I hope you enjoy this conversation. The first time we met was the American atheist convention, which I was covering a journalist, and you were there as a card carrying is. And. Although that you've got up at that event actually gave a speech that you later described as the first time that you began with a standing ovation ended with booze because you you said today is first of all I don't think we should be using the word atheist, and then you went on to say that that there are forms of spirituality that they had closed their mind to I didn't hear the speech. I just met you outside front of all these t shirts like that said like Jesus save us from your followers and. And. I was not wearing one of the. That was I met you. And we hit it off. It was short encounter in. Then I saw you backstage at this debate. And we really started talking. I just got into meditation, and the fact that you were into it, which I did not know because I hadn't heard this beach was hugely validating because you struck me as the prototypical skeptic, and so that that really when you told me you should go on a retreat and Ana. Also, quite skeptical said, hey, you're gonna retreat I took it serious. And plus I was writing a book, and I write about so. Although I Rana because I got into meditation so much earlier. I was I was nineteen when I started, and I had no I had no real scientific training to speak at that point. And I certainly had no persona as an atheist wasn't ATS. But I didn't think myself as Nathan. I didn't go into it. With your level of skepticism may all the things that you're allergic to talk about the Julie oil and the bad music. None of that was an impediment to me. So you are what's what's what did you do music? And I went to India and I walked around in pajamas for a long time. But it was I had you're trying for for one of those pieces. You did you were trying to pry photos of me with long hair out of my reluctant fingers willing to give it to me, but on Akot being and the only reason why there's not hippie photos of me out on the net is because my wife wisely saved me at the eleventh hour, so I was a teenager, and I got into it. So, but you one of the things that's so useful about your books is that you prove that there is a doorway into this concern and this practice that is narrow enough and and brightly lit. It enough. So as to not admit any, and that's and you don't have to take on any cultural trappings and be fascinated with with eastern religion or anything to find this useful. I think it's just an incredibly important thing. To know. I often say that meditation has been the victim of the worst marketing campaign for anything ever. And because it's been presented to us in this very flowery, way and. Actually there..

"This is a live conversation between me and Sam Harris. Sam has had I say this a lot about our guests, but happens to be true in this case, especially Sam had a massive impact on on on my life in my meditation practice Sam if you don't know him, he's he's got a long resumes. Neuroscientist he is an author of some bestselling books, including the end of faith. He's a very prominent atheist. Atheism was at the core of the aforementioned and defaced. He's a podcast or he's got a podcast called waking up. That is just now switching the name. He's actually changing the name of the podcast for reason. I'll explain it a second to making sense one of the most popular podcasts on the planet. So was waking up now it's changing to making sense. He called it waking up because that was actually a name the name of another book. He wrote that meditation was at the center of that book, waking up as amazing book. I recommended highly and unreservedly to everybody, but he then went on to found a meditation app called waking up so he decided to change the name of his podcast to making sense. And he also now has this new app called waking up, which I'm a horrible friend. I haven't checked out yet. But I can guarantee you is excellent. Just because everything Sam does in my opinion, happens to be excellent more about how I got to know Samsa. I met him. Oh, I mean, probably well over a decade ago when I was covering the religion beat at ABC news. And as part of that, I did a big story, but atheists and met Sam at a big conference of atheists and just really hit it off with him. I wouldn't call myself personally in Theus, I would say use the term respectful agnostic, and Sam is much more as much more personally provocative style than I personally would adopt. But I just found him to be very interesting and intriguing. And over time just got to know him personally. And and we've become friends and friends with his wife, Ana Kaz. Well, who's been on this podcast before and will again be in the future because she is in our own, right? Fascinating human being so overtime, salmon, I became friends, and I got to learn that he was interested. And I talk about this in in my first book ten percent, happier. When I found out that Sam who's the ultimate skeptic had a long history of meditation. Dating back to his college years and had done weeks and weeks and weeks and months of silent meditation retreat, I was at a sort of a tender moment in my meditation career was I was trying to figure out how seriously I was gonna take this thing. And and I saw salmon, and I think it was the second or third time. I ran into him. And he happened mention to me that that he had as long as meditation, and I thought, okay, if this guy's into it, I can get into it. And he really encouraged me to do my first. Meditation retreat and introduced me to his friend Joseph Goldstein whose subsequently become my meditation teacher, and so just over the years talking to Sam about meditation practice, and how it shows up in his life and getting his advice on all sorts of things has been incredibly meaningful to me. So when the kind folks at the skirt ball cultural center in Los Angeles invited us to do a conversation in front of a live audience. I left at the paternity because anytime we can spend I can spend Sam is time well spent so this coversation we talk about what meditation is, and what it isn't. We talk about the experience of being on a meditation retreat, something I know a lot of you are curious about and we take a lot of questions from the audience, and for that reason, I am not going to do voice mails this week because we're effectively doing it within the body of the episode anyway will resume our voicemails next week. But there's you'll get to hear people ask very interesting questions. And luckily for you won't just be me answering them you'll you'll be hearing Sam Harris's well for those of you want to hear more about SAM's personal history. He's been on the podcast before you can go back and find that..
