“Initially I suspected that this podcast would be a little dry but it’s actually just fascinating discussions with brilliant people, and I’ve found the topics genuinely fun to hear about – the future of humanity, the threats we face as a species, psychology, politics … So good. Find an episode that you like the sound of and give it a go!”

“I listened to #25 on a flight and it was the best 2.5 hours of my ear’s life. Hugely informative and highly stimulating.”

“The 80,000 Hours Podcast delves into meaningful topics with a commitment to rational inquiry. It’s no exaggeration to say this podcast can change the manner in which you live your life.”
