Harris's work has been translated into over 20 languages.
Harris has debated with many prominent figures on the topics of God or religion, including William Lane Craig, Jordan Peterson, Rick Warren, Andrew Sullivan, Reza Aslan, David Wolpe, Deepak Chopra, and Jean Houston. Since September 2013, Harris has hosted the ''Making Sense'' podcast (originally titled ''Waking Up''), which has a large listenership. In September 2018 Harris released a meditation app, Waking Up with Sam Harris. Provided by Wikipedia
