Today’s episode of The Qualys is from podcast #34 – Sam Harris, Ph.D.: The transformative power of mindfulness.

The Qualys is a subscriber-exclusive podcast, released Tuesday through Friday, and published exclusively on our private, subscriber-only podcast feed. Qualys is short-hand for “qualifying round,” which are typically the fastest laps driven in a race car—done before the race to determine starting position on the grid for race day. The Qualys are short (i.e., “fast”), typically less than ten minutes, and highlight the best questions, topics, and tactics discussed on The Drive.

  1. Re: Qualy w Sam Harris. The recommendations at the very end were mumbled and cut short as to be unintelligible. No reference to written sources given. Maybe somewhere on the site?
    I stumbled on to a video by a neuroscientist, Rick Hanson that had a profound effect on me: simply to hang onto positive experience for a few moments longer.
    Some more comprehensive videos of his also linked there.
    If you have to cram your most important hypothesis into 16 mins. it filters out a lot of the extraneous (BS).
    I have read all of Sam Harris’ books but your interview with him flamed me out after 30 min. I love your site and am a member. Experience will make finding the acorns easier. Thanks, Jim Flint
