Nothing new from Sam if you are familiar with him, but the openness from his host is unprecedented. He sneaks in a little defensiveness about there being good and bad expressions of religion, but he doesn’t press it. He ends by giving Sam a chance to say one thing he’d want religious people to hear, then responds with something he wants atheists to hear.

Parts of this half hour could be responses to many of the threads we’ve had over the last few years. Meditation, “self”, ISIS, the future of religion, ...

I listened to it, more interesting than I thought it would be.  Imagine I don’t have a snarky thing to say about it   :)
