In 2004, Sam Harris published his award-winning first book, “The End of Faith”—a scathing attack on religion and superstition that helped launch the so-called “New Atheist” movement along with later books by Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Daniel Dennett. It was the first of a string of bestsellers for Sam, which include Islam and the Future of Tolerance, his dialogue with Muslim reformer Maajid Nawaz. Today, Sam hosts Waking Up, one of the most popular podcasts in the world. He has also been a committed, unwavering supporter of freethinkers from the Muslim world through the years. We talked to him about Islam, Islamic reform, Muslims, the Regressive Left, the rise of Trump, the ex-Muslim movement, and more. Check it out.
