I mean much to that not liking it because you know giving up medicine zych causes and said i can imagine a couple of other questions i have about this grew up in the uk. I grew up in. The united states is in indian american part of me. What is it like to be the child of indian immigrants in the uk. And how does that. Contrast you think to the experience that i had i look. What do you think is different about it. I don't know. I have a few friends who are engine. Harris grew up on some cousins. She that grew up in the states. I think that the things that we struggle with appropriately very similar. So i i don't i don't think it's that different but you tell me if you think there is something. Stop interested to know. I mean i think that for me. When i you know i wonder what is the whole experience of going to school When you're like granite. i've seen the in between her. And i'm like okay if that's the high school experience of of young british boys. Only that sounds about like my high school experience. Just a complete nerd with no ability to get a girl and having nothing on my mind but girls. And so i think about that and i wonder you know when my parents were with me. I was sort of the experiment. Because i was the first kid. And so when you know. Popular kids started coming out and people are buying nice clothes. They thought i was a complete freak of nature when my sister came about to that phase in her life. Like oh. we've been all through all this before we've seen all this so they knew how to handle it. And i wonder you being the i did. Your parents have a similar experience. Like i like my sister. Got away with things that i would never have gotten away with when i was school hundred percent so i feel like i was constantly fighting for my rights basic like and they were to just to be like my friends. I the only head in a group of friends at school. it wasn't allowed to sleepover. And i think that's more of a gull thing than avoiding so john if you up and i certainly wasn't allowed to dress in the way that a teenage girl in london wants to dress and so that all came out on centers. Eighteen those definitely lotion rebellion in terms of the. I could actually do the things i wanted to before. I wanted to do them but i couldn't. I imagined that the gender thing actually does make a difference. But i think the in your place in the hierarchy of the siblings also makes a difference because the first one i think people who've moved hold onto their culture more strongly so now i was brought up vegetarian for the first five years of my life and then a fish but my brother..
Enjoying Life Through Our Inevitable Mortality With Journalist Suleika Jaouad
"We are as the buddhist master pama trojan has said. We are all programmed for denial. There's something about the human condition that doesn't quite let us take in our mortality. I- often compare it to like trying to get one of my cats to look in the mirror. You just do it. You know or trying to put two magnets together. They won't quite touch. And i don't you know i don't quite know why it is and there are lots of practices in buddhism and the catholic tradition memento mori. Were you carry around like a stone in your pocket and touch it to remind yourself you're going to die and so one can get better at this but it requires a lot of work. Have you now that you are out of that situation. We should talk about how that situation resolved your health your health trails but do you find yourself forgetting once in a while that Before death it's all life. Yeah i forget. All the time i have moments like this morning where i knew we were gonna have this conversation and having a bad hair day and i rushed took a shower and then i felt totally ridiculous because a couple years ago i had no hair and so to be worried about a bad hair day. Especially on a podcast. Is you know a level of absurdity. That i'm fully aware of but i also think that there's there's good reason for why we we can't have that heightened awareness of our mortality if we were all live every day as if it were last we'd go bankrupt and probably make terrible decisions in the world but likely implode and so. I've come to delight in those moments of forgetfulness Because they feel like a real marker of of progress in and healing from me the flip side of that is that you know when i wake up in the morning all often remind myself of when i was at my sickest and might energy was so limited that i could do about three things every day. I could answer an email. I could watch a movie. I could see a friend. But i really had only enough energy to do three things three simple things and now when i go into my day i use as a kind of song exercise for myself of if i could only do three things today. What are the things that would feel most important most rewarding most
Fresh update on "harris" discussed on The High Stakes Fantasy Football Hour
"We have a quarterback. He's not gonna start like we needed to take high upside shots at quarterback and pretty much. I mean well. I if james doesn't came as accomplishes that but if it doesn't work out jamie stuck speak one extreme quarterback you know watching them. I mean one league even punted toy round. Eighteen and when wilson who. I'm a big although losing. My tiger may chester for big disaster for him. Losing mci becton though. That's that's actually. i think. Drop melissa wilson now because That's i don't wanna see how that sorta six weeks. Yeah yeah next. Four to six weeks. They're going to be rough. But yeah i think you know. Obviously you know i. It accomplishes what we were trying to do their record. We were essentially pointing quarterback until trae lance gets there and yeah i mean look we know what is right. He's slinger he throws the people he throws. The ball is gonna throw a lot of picks. He's not particularly accurate or not particularly i. I wouldn't say good. I mean he's not great what he's good for fantasy purposes. I mean he's going to throw interceptions he throws way out of them. So i mean it's it's certainly it's certainly not going to be A hill you know. I don't know i i think I yeah i think genius for the situation accomplices. Exactly what we're trying to do here and yes this year. I think you know. There's a huge overcompensation going on as far as adp or what happened last year in that all the running. You know mid round running quarterbacks over performed and so now everybody's taking them away too high. And i'm just i mean i'm not taking around five like i mean. Yeah we have a couple because you have no exposure. But that's these are these prices. Were getting really out of hand for quarterback so when the mortgage zig and we punch a lot this year yep Let's talk about new england here Garett damian harris got a lot of hype as the drafting season went on obviously at one hundred yards rushing couple of catches in in the first game of the season. What is it still possible. I guess i know possible. I guess a better way to phrase. This question is when is james white gonna be start worthy in high stakes leagues. Is it just going to be in. The big by weeks is going to be for teams. Hit hard by injury. What's the upside for. James white in twenty twenty one for high stakes players. Yeah i mean.

"In the nfc lease. What do you make of this game for. Dallas this is going to be tough now. That charters unfortunate all the sudden. They've got injury issues by laga there right. Tackle just got put into reserve within the last hour. Chris harris one of their starting corners. he's not gonna play this week with my. They think is a minor shoulder injury that would be one of one of the defensive tackles jones's out so that all of sudden they've got injury issues but rob when you look at dallas. Okay they get jack marin back this week from the covert list. That's great but but when you look at their defense to marcus. Lawrence is out probably about two months broken foot. The other defensive and rainy gregory still not off the covert list. Their defense is bad. They're very weak at d. Tackle their linebackers have not play quite the level of their expecting their corners. Got absolutely housed against brady. I give a punchers chance. Dacca's been terrific. I mean he is. He was awesome last week. It was awesome before he got hurt last year. They'll be able to score on the chargers but the question is can they stop justin. Herbert i have a hard time believing that and i. I don't see them winning. I know for this. It'll be a high scoring game. I'd be very surprised if the cowboys would win. Now i'll be fascinated. See what kind of crowd. They haven't so fi is going to be a dallas cowboy so talking the chargers they feel really good about their season tickets basically they had a very good run in the spring Talking to them privately about it. But you're right it typically cowboy fans eagle fans and all those fans They travel now. Here's the thing if the cowboys lose right this week. They play next monday night at home against philly. Philly might be a little bit better than we expected they dominated and embarrassed atlanta and their home opener their phillies really well coached the roster isn't great but the really well coach when you when you get guys to play better than they probably are doing a great coaching job. Last thing aaron rodgers of course the bad debut last week now. I've heard all types of theories. It's one game of course or two. Is he really all in. And and i've even heard a reporter to say that there is some concern within the organization that you know he he's just acting like he's all in and and committed and things like that. What do you think happened. And where do you think his mentality is at as far as this season believe it. I mean the the lack of preseason Remember he for the first time ever there in the off season. i think that's probably part of it. But it wasn't just like he didn't play well. The offensive line was horrendous. Their defense is awful. And i talk to them. They were really upset. About instill joe barry. The new defensive coordinator. They feel is going to be more aggressive. They just were terrible. I mean what. I never saw this coming And i think the winds defense is a little bit better than most people thought and if this was an ideal it was we know about How the game was reassigned. It was supposed to be in new orleans. It was jacksonville. I i just think they were author game. They will absolutely destroy the lines on monday night. That the these these These prime time games have been great so far. But i i would be shocked if that if the lines come within ten points on monday night that will be. I'm with you. I think and i think chris we saw a stat when they lose or something the next game that air after bag. Yeah like like he did. The lines gave a forty one points in the first three quarters to the forty niners so it could be ugly. Doubt adam grey stuff is all about the weekend and we'll talk to you soon. Thank you fox.

Four trillion george over the last year and mud a year and a half five point four trillion law. That money is still going out the door.

Is that what you're talking about what you're saying about five having a having both of those put together and i said from day one. These are two complete different categories. The one we have in front of us right now. It's already passed in a bipartisan way. With nineteen republicans. George is the hardcore infrastructure. The roads bridges internet water sewer all the things that have been neglected for the last thirty years. The president went out and campaigned on this. He went out and sold this thing. We all got behind him. We had a bipartisan deal. And i think it's the greatest thing we could do. That's the one that has the urgent and emergency that we have. Let's get that done it setting over in the house right now.

Paul Kengor Suggests We Reached Immunity Between Vaccinated and Naturally Immune People
"He writes the following So, according to the CDC itself. An estimated 120 million Americans have been infected with Covid. Then there are another 200 million plus have been vaccinated. Many of those infected were pressured into getting vaccinated anyway. Still add up those numbers, and there's surely close to 300 million Americans with natural immunity, artificial immunity. Out of 330 million In many of the 330 million are Children, babies. So the natural immunity question is crucial. And yet the feds aren't even discussing it. Well, this is my point. As well. When you throw around the unvaccinated Joe Biden is assuming that people out there will be as stupid as he is and say, Hey, yeah, he's 80 million. Unvaccinated. Say, Wait a minute. Whatever. I've got immunity and but you're not vaccinated. Don't like that. I am vaccinated. But that has nothing to do with anything. I wonder if Salon what was that puts his name Zachary something rather Mr Producer. Pitzer rally. Pizzarelli, pepperoni. What was his name? Anyways, a little. He's a mental midget. Zachary over there. It's salon, speaking of left wing cook sites. I wonder if Zachary is going to write articles. About this. What it means to be unvaccinated, and that Joe Biden first was opposed to the Trump vaccinations. Now he can't get enough of them. Or Kamala Harris. Same thing. He'd rather write about. The poor souls who've been in talk radio who passed away. This is how sick these bastards are.
Why Should You Trust Joe Biden Over Your Personal Healthcare Provider?
"Anybody else. Joe Biden gave to me a frightening speech. This evening. No, I believe in these vaccines. I'm not in ever of action, but I believe you should consult your own doctor. That the government Television hosts even radio hosts. They're not to be trusted. You trust your own physician. You don't go to the government. When it comes to other medical issues. Politicization of this issue. Biden Harris last summer as I will demonstrate By Fauci and the teachers unions. By CNN, MSNBC and other irresponsible phony news sites. Has undermined the credibility of so many of these institutions. You go to your doctor. You talk to your doctor. 80 million adults have not been vaccinated. They say 70% have been I've asked this question before. The 80 million who have not been vaccinated. How many of them Have the, uh, anti body now. Because they don't need to be vaccinated. Maybe that's their position. I don't know. How many of them can't be vaccinated because some kind of health malady that they already have what percentage of the email? I don't know.

What Are the Newsom Recall Polls Saying?
"Hey everybody. Welcome to this episode of the charlie kirk show with us. Today's a friend of mine and he's rarely ever wrong. In fact we had him coming on our program leading up to the election and he got almost all of his predictions correctly. Richard harris from the people's pundit and also we had you on for the georgia thing and you're the one that early said. Hey we got a problem in georgia and you're right so we're going to talk about california polls and so all right richard. Let's cut through all of the nonsense. Yes the way. It works in california for all of our friends in maine and massachusetts and florida and south carolina. It's a two part question. Yes or no recall gavin newsom and if yes then who let's start with the yes or no. Do you think that the yeses are going outnumber the nose. Yes we pulled it a couple of weeks back and we had no ahead by a little bit charlie. But let me leave this with you. The caveat here is that. I thought my share of the you know is part of poland. I thought my share of the white vote was a little bit high california's usually forty five fifty percent tops and did see other pollsters. That had him in the sixties. If you look at who's voting right now. This is why democrats are nervous. The electorate is very white. And it's and it's much older so if if the electorate and we had them at fifth we whites at fifty five but we still had the age breakdown to be pretty young so that could a two point advantage could easily be swamped demographic difference like that the problem newsom has then i was just saying this before he needs white liberals and asian voters to come out and they are the least likely to want to vote. Weitz were over. Eighty percent certain to vote when we pull them And asia voters were in the fifty s. So it. I mean it really. It goes to show you got a close race can turn into a nailbiter either way
Influential Educators: Abolitionist Prudence Crandall
"Was born on september third. Eighteen three in rhode island booth of her parents. Pardon and esther were farmers. Imprudence was young. Her family relocated to canterbury connecticut. There prudence studied arithmetic. Latin and science topics not normally taught to girls at the time. But prudence is family was quaker. Quakers believe in equal opportunity for education in eighteen. Thirty one. prudence opened her own private school for girls. The canterbury female boarding school. The school served the wealthiest canterbury families and was a source of great pride in the community. It was ranked as one of the best schools in connecticut with the curriculum that rivaled even the most elite all boys schools but prudence is school was not entirely equal. All of her students were white to encourage prudence to take a more aggressive stance. Prudence is black housekeeper. Marsha davis began strategically leaving copies of the abolitionist newspaper. The liberator in places where she knew prudence would find them. The liberator promoted the need for immediate abolition as opposed to a gradual abolition. That was more commonly supported by the new england. Delete sarah harris who came from a prominent black family in the area was the first to actively approach prudence about integrating school. Sara was eager to continue her own education so that she could become a teacher for other black children and in eighteen thirty. Two prudence enrolled sarah in the canterbury boarding school. The decision was met with outrage white. Parents demanded that prudence expel sarah when she refused. They withdrew their daughters from the school realizing that she'd need to find new sources of tuition. Prudence went to speak with william lloyd garrison. The outspoken white abolitionist publisher of the liberator prudence and william discussed the possibility of converting the canterbury school into a school entirely for black girls. William connected prudence with money of the most prominent black families in new england and in eighteen thirty three the school reopened with a new mission to educate quote young ladies and little misses of color. The class consisted of twenty four students and the curriculum remained identical to that of the original. Can't school
Why Is Black America Leery of the COVID Vaccine?
"You have a sense of. Why black america is leery of vaccination us mandates we. We've had we've had the senile man in the white house talk about the tuskegee 'em and Which had nothing to do with it. I think he thinks that's the same as the tuskegee institute is it to do with fear of over the white man or is it more complicated than that when joe biden and comma harris ragged to their donors that they were going to diss of vow. All of the amazing achievements that donald trump did with vaccines and they did so knowing that the group of americans most sympathetic to them. Excuse me were black americans. It is no surprise to me that people hurt those messages. Listen to those messages and believed those messages so went went so when kamala harris actually says that if a vaccine is developed under donald trump's aegis she's not going to take it vats. Listen to and that's what we're paying the price for today harris absolutely. Let me just add by the way. There are friends and relatives of mine. That believed that she still hasn't been vaccinated and believes that that is part of the reason for some of the strange behavior. We witness where she had to go to the walter. Reed reed hotel up. Or walter mondale hospital. When those texans came to town For their super spreader

Iron Maiden Find Eastern Muse
"This is iron maiden the new album is called. Sent jitsu this is the song days of future past and here to talk about what is An absolutely epic album from iron maiden his npr music. Lar- scotch which. I have two full disclosure. I was listening to iron maiden maybe forty years ago and they've been together longer than that you know and if you told me we'd still be talking about new music from them this far along. I probably wouldn't have believed that like you said. Listen to that rift guitars on this. The songs their vision. Everything i think our i. It's just all fully intact seventeenth album in forty six years from one of the greatest heavy metal bands full time. That's not hyperbole. it's a fact. Album is ten tracks over eighty two minutes so it is long and at times help lead but this has been iron maidens mode lately these grand sweeping epochs that tell these larger than life stories are made may arenas but their music lightly has been more tailored to concert halls. Most of these songs are like eight ten minutes long. Each vase sprawl had many movements. I can. I can imagine like quite a stage. Production for whenever iron maiden contura gone. They do use a lotta runway to get these songs going but but it works. So i think it's still pulls you along. I never found myself feeling tired or like the sound was getting tired. And there's also an assist something has been doing a little bit more lately but there's also a little bit nostalgia. My favorite song written here by the basis. Steve harris is called the parchment. But it's a song that gnaws to the egyptian themes of iron mates nineteen eighty four album power slave. So that's like a nice.

Matt Boyle and Trump Discuss Kamala Harris' Absence During the Afghanistan Withdrawal
"I actually asked president trump if he runs again in two thousand twenty four. Which a lot of people think that he will and i. I happen to think that he's very likely to run again. In two thousand and two thousand four. I asked him what he rather face. Joe biden or kamala harris. And you know this is in the middle of this whole afghanistan crisis and we're seeing biden's failures on display for the world and you know. He said he didn't want to predict too far out in the future but he also said he doesn't know if biden is gonna make it that far because he says there's something wrong with him. There's a lot of other stuff in this interview. i also asked president trump. What he thought about. Kamala harris of scanning off to asia In vietnam in the middle of all this usually by the way dr. okay. I get it vice presidents travel around the world. They meet with other government leaders on behalf of the president but in the middle of a crisis like we saw in the last several weeks here in afghanistan normally of accomp- invites president would call off their foreign travel and stand by the president's and help the president right like and i think that that that any republican or democrat. It's not supposed to be a partisan thing vice presidents are supposed to help their boss. There's supposed to have the president and kamala harris. You know jetted. On out of town over to vietnam and singapore where she was for for for for like all week and then she finally shows back up here You know once things are smoothing out a little bit. But i mean still not really i. She still hasn't really appeared in public with joe biden. On this rarely. She hasn't made any public remarks about what's going on afghanistan or anything so i asked president trump. What he thought about Comma harris doing that. He says you know what she seemed to want to get away Who can blame

"That could be debated but what seems obvious from the non dual side. Is that ordinary conscious. Awareness is already free of self right. He's already free. Self is not like you figure out how to annihilate yourself through practice. It's not like the really existing self gets upper routed through the progress of insight. It's not like the tourist who has lost gets found right. There was a false problem here. It was actually a false problem. It's not a real problem that got solved and you can discover that directly right and so non to mindfulness becomes rather than being the person on the bank. The meditators the local attention in the head noticing objects go by you recognize that you're actually the river your identical to it. You are not aware of consciousness and its contents you're aware as consciousness and its contents right. You're not watching experience. you are identical to the. There's no place to stand where you are not identical to the sphere of experience. You know you're not on the edge of it looking into it right. You are it. And that's a difference. There's a shift. There's a subtle shift there that is clarifying of an illusion that you you know. You took for granted as being true that he made didn't know was an illusion and it really is decisively clarifying. It's not like it's we can debate about whether or not one or the other is true. It's a shift in the again. One read gropes for analogies here but all analogies have their flaws but a clear analogy for me in terms of this kind of binary and terms the shift is. Maybe we talked about this on on prior podcast. I remember i use this analogy a lot but it is very much like in the days before covid when one would go into a restaurant you know going into a restaurant and getting halfway through your meal and suddenly realizing that the entire wall on one side of the restaurant was a mirror rather than a restaurant that was twice the size. The you know and in fact it is right. What you thought was a room that was double. The size was in fact just a floor to ceiling mirror. That was unrecognized as a mirror right so something happens there but what happens is not a change in your visual per sept- right. It's not like the light changes or that is just all the visual. Data's the same but there is a shift and it's decisive like you. just you know you. You don't go back to imagining that those. There's more people over there right. You see that those people are the same people as the people over here. And that's just a piece of glass and there's no depth to it rather just light on a wall and it's not a perfect analogy in the mirror kind of complicated things a little bit but it captures. The clarity of the difference and the kind of decisiveness of it had the unforgettable. The of it right you. Don't go back to thinking that the the mirror might be the world and the simplicity insofar as you could overlook it right insofar as you could be confused in any moment the simplicity of recognizing again. So it's like it's not like you really recognized in that great moment on retreat. Six months ago and now you can sort of dimly understand it right now is not like that at all like each moment of being mindful of it again is clear like you can touch the glass. You can't lose this thing right but the clarity of it can be interrupted like you. Can you can forget about it. You can go to sleep. You can be bewitched by your meal or whatever you can be distracted where you can beat us. There's no question that. I spend much of my life distracted by thought right so that is true and that that that has consequences right right like my much of my life. Much of my practice is to be less of more of the time rhyming. This is still part of the project. But every moment of mindfulness really delivers the goods. Right a really punches. Through to something that seems uncontaminated by concepts. It's not a remedial effort to calm down to get some balance to relax to stress and it used to be right and it used to be even after i'd spent a year on retreat right and he accumulative a year retreat but you know three months retreats in two months retreat in one month retreats even after. I had practiced pasta for a full year over the course of a few years. I was still the kind of person who couldn't say what i'm saying. Now right so it took an additional pointing to this. And i mean that's what i'm trying to get across when i talk about. Mindfulness this available to people and it's available sooner than they expect and the difference matters and yet for most of us most of life is still a matter of trying to be mindful as we can moment to moment in every circumstance and i see no reason to believe that project is hopeless. Right i mean. I i think there there may be. You know some of the great meditation masters. I have spent time with. I have no doubt that they were more stable in this recognition. Than i am and i have no doubt that practice is part of that.

"Nothing there's the teaching seemed to be kind of confusing on this point while yes the seemed to be something that would be the nature of mind under certain descriptions it was also true in the straight tear vodka presentation of a politician under somebody like side to for instance this burmese meditation master who many of us joseph and sharon in particular spent a lotta time practicing with it seemed to be the very logic of the practice was actually there isn't much were to notice about the nature of consciousness in this moment that is redeeming or transformative other than to notice the evidence of your on enlightenment ramey should just notice a ninja do gun not to but the not you're noticing the selflessness you're noticing is not any kind of fundamental freedom from self you know radically cutting through the illusion of the self it's more selflessness by virtue of impermanent it's a not by virtue of niche so you're noticing everything arise and pass away and you're drawing the implication that there can't be a stable self in this clockwork because where would it be right. It's like kind of inference right now. Non dual mindfulness or absorption practice or the enzyme convinced that the insight into advised to in the indian. Tradition is the same thing although it is a different methodology. And you know in some ways it's a their pitfalls danny teaching really again. There's a needle in a needle that has to be threaded here in an adviser you can get the sense that really there is no methodology of beyond just talking about this stuff endlessly with a guru. And he you get the point to your don't and if you get the point never a reason to practice and if you don't get the point your practice is always hopeless right so it's like it's too steep path as often taught and so it seems to me. The has really is really about the best compromise there between these two messages. The one message being. Yes you really are unenlightened and you got a lot of work to do to dig yourself out of this hole. And mindfulness is the rope. You could climb here to get out. You can do it at one moment at a time. Who knows how long it's gonna take you big project. Almost nobody gets out of this whole good luck right so the message is while that you don't there's no point in worrying about any of that it takes as long as it takes. You do absorb the impression that really the project is to kind of spectate on the evidence of your on enlightenment.

"Hey guys sam. Harris who by the way has no relation to me. although i wouldn't mind it. Sam has had a formative impact on my contempt of development. He was one of the first quote unquote normal people. At least that's how i it back when i was still a rather judgmental skeptic. He was one of the first normal people. I met who was really into meditation which gave me a lot of courage and inspiration to pursue the practice myself. Sam later helped me get into my first meditation retreat with his old friend. Joseph goldstein which was a massively important event in my life and the beginning of a deep an important relationship for me with joseph for those of you who are not familiar with sam. He is a neuroscientist philosopher. Author podcast and app founder. He first came to my attention in the mid august when he wrote a bestselling book called the faith which was a jeremiad against organized religion. I was surprised to learn that notwithstanding his hostility to religion he had spent cumulatively several years on meditation retreats often in the company of joseph sam later road another bestselling book which touched on his meditation career and contemporary of subjects. In general it was called waking up waking up is also the name of his meditation app but while he has one foot firmly placed in the world he's also very much in the arena mixing it up on twitter and on his extremely popular podcast called making sense with his controversial views on hot button issues. From trump to race to islam. Sam believes that the future of civilization depends on our ability to have rational conversations on thorny issues and he has a new book called making sense conversations on consciousness morality and the future of humanity in which some of his podcast conversations are revised and extended. So i wanted to have him on here to talk about the book and to explore with him. How somebody who is so fiercely. Engaged in the public square uses meditation to guide and sustain him. I'll say before we dive in here that i suspect many of you may disagree with him on key issues. I know personally. I wrestle with some of his ideas quite a bit but no matter where you stand. I think you'll find his answers to all of the questions. I pose to him fascinating so here. We go with sam harris. Hey dan hi cousin sam so what's happening here. I'm well i. I got a million things could talk about but What what what are we talking about today. Well you know what i'm just you know. I follow your podcast very closely. And i follow your utterances on twitter very closely and i had a question for you. I've asked you in private. That i wanted to ask you in public. Which was given that. You have such a long history with meditation and given that you engage so ferociously in public events. How does one inform the other. Yeah that's interesting. Well hope there are few answers to that or a few levels to that. I mean one is on one level. Some of what. I do in public certainly on. Twitter has seemed like a painful distraction at times from my my core interest in my core values and then meditation or your insight into the nature of the mechanics of my own mental. Suffering is an antidote to that problem. Right so i you know i recover from things. I shouldn't have said and shouldn't have done as anyone does by recognizing the real basis for mental ease in wellbeing. And i'm just you know it's an absolute lifeline for me to have that training and have that awareness. Oh mission critical. But the line isn't where many people certainly many buddhists many meditators many dharma people think it is. It's not that missile. For instance you know you. And i both have meditation apps so we have many people who are aware that we're identified with this whole pursuit of living in examined life amplifying compassion and wisdom. Both are on other people's and advocating for that whole project and then our politics takes a turn toward authoritarian capture in my view. And you know i In this last week. I've been very active on twitter. Just hammering away on trump and the misinformation we've seen polluting our public conversation and there are many people who see that and think. Hey looks like you could use your own meditation out. What the hell are you doing. You know why who. Who are you going to teach the meditative. You're so caught by politics. That's the wrong place to draw the line right. I actually think that emotions. Like outrage and anger and fear are salience signals. That are worth paying attention to and i'm not spending all my time or even much of my time angry and afraid when i am signalling on twitter. Something just happened. That is outrageous that we really need to pay attention to right. So it's it's like analogous to get into the car and putting on your seatbelt and you do that because you don't wanna die right. You don't wanna be needlessly injured. You're aware of all of the bad things that follow when you'd spend your life driving cars without a seatbelt. They've been well advertised to us. And it is an awareness of all of that that causes you to buckle your seatbelt. But you don't actually have to be feeling afraid every time you get in a car to buckle your seatbelt. The norm is not enforced by a feeling of terror to of death and of dine in car accident so people get a false sense of how just the nature of my mind is. It's not that. I never get bent out of shape around the things i'm reacting to but there's compassion and there's idiot compassion right. I mean this is a phrase that you may have heard in various dorm circles. it really is. there's a an idiotic norm of quiescence and non engagement and.

"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.

Forty. percent of Americans believed Biden to be suffering from dementia and sixty percent don't believe he'll survive a full forced term as president. Let that sink in. We have a man that almost half of America believes has dementia. Being, supported by the Democrat Party. If this is an elder abuse than than what is. We've talked about this often I mean I'm just shocked that his that is leading. Do this let alone his inner circle of the Democrat Party what does that say about them? Joe Biden. Can't even answer questions though I mean he he gets mean he starts screaming obscenities. He begins shaking as fast when he doesn't understand the answer. Then, you got a camera is a camera Kamala because that's a big controversy these days. which she asks a question that she can't answer. She just grins like a Cheshire Cheshire. Cat and just starts whooping and giggling. When you ask them both the question together is. Like it's like a rheinland overdose. It's like crazed. What are we watching. Here's something else. It's crazy and it's not going to be talked about. Because they won't even allow for for for Kamala Harris to answer questions to be asked questions by the media after the big announcement yesterday they just hustled them off the stage GONNA put Kamala Harrison same basement with Biden. I didn't think not going to let her be her. Can they allow it? Kamala Harris strongly believes that Joe Biden is a serial abuser of women. But will do everything in her power to elevate the the hair sniffing Predator to groper in chief. Joe Biden can't even remember Harris, his name without looking down at his cheat sheet. And a lot of people now starting to think that of course. Barack Obama who could not persuade by the not to run that he's he's orchestrating this from the background. By the so lost in the past. That it many times he doesn't have any idea where he is. And we're starting to learn more about Kamala Harris Sketchy. Pass. But but the media doesn't care. And I think that's what's most frightening of all the media does not care. They have already cited up with Camp Biden. They're already sending memos back and forth. This is the same thing we saw what Hillary Clinton. Only, tried to kind of keep it a secret until wikileaks y'all just broke it. You'll bus it all up, bussing it out. Now, there's no they're not trying to keep a secret there. They are in alignment they are in collusion there they are in cahoots. And their goal is to get. Joe Biden across the finish line now wing. That, he won't finish his first term. What are we watching? Will you look at the background and when you look at the hypocrisy? You have Joe. Biden accusing trump president trump of being a racist bringing up Charlottesville I gotta get the trump camp credit because they knew this was coming. They were ready for a series commercial doubt that are absolutely brilliant pushing back against the false narrative in the meantime. The. Trump camp is also taking the offensive of using Joe. Biden's words and actions over the last forty years in Washington DC to demonstrate that if anybody is a racist in this in this race, it is Joe Biden. And doing the same thing for Kamala Harris using her words and her actions. The media. Especially, with the television media, we don't have news will we have is propaganda and far too many people are still wired in an hooked on a that propaganda. And they decided that they're not to have any inkling of the truth being towed. About the trump pence camp they're going to lie when necessary even if they can't get away with it, they're going to put it out there because they know how those lives shape public opinion. You still have people running around saying that president trump said all they were good people on both sides. That has long been debunked. and. It's all too easy to even look at videos of that press conference, but the media is powerful. Under biding Obama Black Americans were left poorer than than. than. The last three years the last eight years have been a complete turnaround. Economic growth historic economic growth in the black community in just three years and yet. You have Joe Biden. Kamala Harris talking about the devastating impact that the trump administration has had on black, America? On the Black Economy Whatever that is. What is clear going forward is that for Democrats fraud is the name of the game. If you can't. Pretend to be for the people actively working against them. Then you can't rightly be a Democrat at all right now. This is scary stuff. And we're going to half. To. Find a way to fight back against it and win in November. There's a controversy out there.

"Under the old rule de far an organization, could self certify to being compliant with the law so they? You basically say I'm doing good I'm good I'm so give me the contract. I'M A guy. And and that would be adequate under the CNN though now you have to have external certification by A. Person Authorized give that type of certification, and they'll come in and do an audit and make sure that the controls are in place so. You know I think there are a lot of companies involved in the defense, industrial base and I. Don't think they're that. Many people doing the assessment, so you definitely want to start getting the controls in place and start thinking about how you're going to get certified so that you're ready to bid on contracts when they come.

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.

"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.

"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..

"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..

"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..

"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..
