In their first episode, Joe & Josh read America's least controversial writer, Sam Harris, on how science can help us answer moral questions. And they're more than a little skeptical. Along the way, they talk about the meaning of life, moral relativism, and the origins of good and evil. As first episodes go, this one is perhaps the greatest in the history of podcasting. (Prove that statement is wrong. Scientifically.) Get ready for earnest ruminations on the death camps and the atom bomb, a shout-out to Emile Cioran, and many declarations of your hosts' own total lack of intellectual confidence.
Before you listen, be sure to check out the Season One introduction, Episode Zero, and of course read the essay itself: https://www.samharris.org/blog/item/thinking-about-go
