I am collecting all of Sam Harris' media appearances, especially audio files of his various debates, interviews, and talk radio segments. I have come across quite a bit of material that is not listed on his website. I want to assemble a master list of everything that is out there for those Sam Harris fans who just can't get enough!
Here is a list of appearances for which audio files are available on the internet. I discovered most of these by Google. Some require subscriptions, however, I'd be willing to share some of these w/ anyone interested.

To download the full podcasts w/ Sam Harris, you will need to get a Premium membership for the site. You can purchase a 1-day membership for only $1.95. A small price considering how amazing these interviews are.
Here is the link to the site:
Hope this helps.
Again, please post any additional audio that I have not listed here.
Sam spoke at the New York Ethical Society and it was shown on C-Span 2, I think November 2005. I’ve seen the recorded program several times. it was great. i think you can probably get more info from the Ethical Society. sometimes referred to in NY as the Society for ethical cutlure.
I know the Ethical Society in St. Louis has a website so I’m sure the one in NY does also
