Top 10 Conversations – according to the algorithms anyway…

If you’re a recent subscriber to the Sentientism podcast or Sentientism YouTube then you might have missed out on some inspirational conversations about “what’s real?”, “who matters?” and “how can we make a better world?”. I thought I’d highlight some of the most popular episodes so far to tempt you to explore our back catalogue (189 episodes so far! – you might have to update your podcast app settings to download them) and meet some more of our amazing guests. If your favourites aren’t on the list you can blame the algorithms and send your chosen episodes to more of your friends to spread the word :). In no particular order (and yes there are more than 10 – gathered from many different platform top tens)!:

Katie Mack
“How do you find meaning

in a universe that’s doomed?”
Frans de Waal
“You cannot go wrong
with compassion”
Marc Bekoff
“Every individual matters”
Peter Watts
“We are entropic eddies complex enough to have woken up”
Yasmine Mohammed
“There is no us and them”
Christopher Sebastian
“We don’t have to wait until the 24th century for a Star Trek future”
Michael Huemer
“If you have experienced suffering you’re aware of its badness”
Massimo Pigiucci
Should Stoics be Vegan?
Diana Fleischman
“We can’t understand humans without recognising that we’re animals”
Melanie Joy
“How to End Injustice Everywhere”
AC Grayling
“I agree wholeheartedly with Sentientism”
Yamini Narayanan
“Mother Cow, Mother India”
AJ Jacobs
“I love the idea of Sentientism!”
Adrian Tchaikovsky
“I’ve always identified with the other”
Peter Singer
“Animal Liberation Now!”
Ingrid Newkirk
“Let’s make a world with less suffering today!”
Peter Tatchell
“Humanism will evolve into Sentientism”
Corey Lee Wrenn
“Vegan stuff is going to be hot!”
Mark Solms
“Ought flows from sentience”
Carole Raphaelle Davis
“Sentientism feels like home!”
Christof Koch
“Consciousness is not a computation… it’s a state of being”
John Sanbonmatsu
“We’ve made a civilisational error”
David Pearce
“Compassion alone is not enough – we need to systematise benevolence”
Lisa Kemmerer
“Compassion is a boundless capacity”
I can’t emphasise enough how many wonderful conversations and people are missing from this list! Rest assured I have a rich pipeline of future guests too – suggestions and introductions are always welcome.

Given we’re trying to persuade ~8 billion humans (and the powerful AIs) to edge towards a Sentientist worldview our Sentientism channels are still pretty tiny (14k subscribers and 167k views on YouTube and around 1.2k subscribers and 56k listens on the podcast). So every view, listen, like, review, rating, subscription and friend-share is much appreciated. Our communities are growing all the time and we’re steadily nudging the world towards “evidence, reason and compassion for all sentient beings”.

Thank you for all your support – whatever form it may take,

Jamie.
