This is a list of podcast episodes across a range of mental health topics that are hopefully useful and interesting for people to listen to. 

I’ve tried to include every EA podcast episode related to mental health that I could find, as well as any made by people who seem adjacent to EA. The post was inspired by this shortform and the idea that well-produced podcast episodes can provide an accessible form of mental health support.

 

Quick note: I have not listened to most of these podcasts and so cannot personally vouch for their quality or relevance. It is also worth making clear that podcasts and other forms of content are not an adequate replacement for getting help should you need it. 

This list is intended to be complimentary to other forms of support, not a replacement. As a starting point, the EA Mental Health Navigator has a list of EA-specific resources and recommended providers and there are lots of great, general options as well

 

How this list works

Podcast episodes have been split into ten categories. These are loosely based on the most common conditions listed in the 2018 EA Mental Health Survey, with a few extra added that I believe could be particularly relevant to the EA community. A few episodes have been that were considered particularly valuable have been included under multiple topics.

Based on this shortform discussion, an emphasis has been placed on finding podcasts produced by members of the EA community [E], Rationality community [R], and people adjacent to these communities [A]. 

The other podcasts included in the directory are an attempt to find the best general [G] podcast episodes on each topic. I trawled through a whole bunch of ‘best podcast for X’ articles to do this, as well as picking through the top search results on Spotify. I have roughly filtered these podcasts to generally only include those that had very high ratings (>4.5/5), had a large number of reviews (>100), and that seemed good quality when I briefly scanned their description/ episode titles. I also used this website to focus on the episodes that seemed most popular for a given podcast.

Each episode listing in this directory should include the following: Episode Link & Title, Podcast Title, Source Label ([E] = EA; [R] Rationalist; [A]: Adjacent; [G] General), Date, Episode Length, Episode Description, Podcast Description.

Links are mostly to Spotify podcasts with some to Apple, purely based on what was easiest for me to find. I make no claims as to where you should listen to podcasts, only a suggestion to listen to those listed below!

Not a big deal, but Howie's 80k podcast also talks about ADHD, fwiw.

So great of you to put together a compilation! Any chance you would be willing to indicate which you have listened to yourself and found to be good? I'm happy to vouch for the 80k one and the Ezra Klein on anxiety.
