I don't often listen to podcasts, but I did listen to an episode of Sam Harris where he interviewed Megan Phelps, who was a prominent member of the Westboro Baptist Church and fled, along with her sister Grace.  Megan is a fascinating person with a compelling story, and it was a terrific interview.

I've listened to a bit of Joe Rogan.  He's also an interesting person. He has some interesting ideas about life and consciousness and the universe, but he seems to often veer into conspiratard territory, which is a big turn-off for me.

Agree completely about Rogan.  It really depends on the guest.  He's not the smartest guy, although he tries really hard!   He's entertaining and interesting. 

Al of Sam Harris' stuff is as good as the Phelps interview.   His stuff on A.I. is particularly interesting.  He has some great guests.
