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.

MEDIA APPEARANCES (in addition to samharris.org listings)—

Al Franken Show (Air America Podcasts, Aug 31, 2006)

Rational Response Squad (Interview #30 w/ Sam Harris)

I have all of the above files.  However, there are a few out there I’ve heard about but was not able to get my hands on.  Here is a list of what I’ve heard about, but have not been able to download myself.

OTHER APPEARANCES –

Dennis Prager Show (Sam Harris 1st appearance sometime earlier in 2004)
Laura Ingraham Radio (sometime in 2004)
Live at the New York Public Library (Sam Harris in conversation w/ Oliver McTiernan, Sept 25, 2006 – I’ve contacted the NYPL, they say they will post audio for this debate on their website within the next 3 weeks.)

Let’s get a comprehensive list going!  Please post any additional appearances I’ve left out here.  Include as much information as possible, including dates and if possible, direct links to the audio files. 

Sincerely,
Mark

The Al Franken Show can be found on the Air America Radio Network site.

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

Thanks for posting that list.

The Al Franken show seems to be available only by subscription. I’ll pass.

$1.95 1-day pass (one time charge)
$6.95 per month
$29.95 billed every 6 months
$49.95 per year

Could you annotate the list of Sam Harris recordings with whether they are free or what the cost is?

The Rational Response Squad site was totally new to me.  Never came across this interview in all of my searching.

Thanks so much for that post—awesome stuff!!

I look forward to any new audio material anyone out there has come across.  Please post w/ as much relevant info as possible.  If you have the URL, please post direct link to the audio file.

Sincerely,
Mark
