Great podcast

This podcast is great. If you care about truly important issues in the world, such as the risks of new technologies like artificial intelligence and biotechnology, or what the probability of us being alone in the universe is, you won't be disappointed. It regularly includes high-profile guests, offering an unusually in-depth conversation full of fascinating new things to learn. Highly recommended.

Will broaden your understanding of the world and your options

The 80,000 Hours podcast is one of my top five favourite podcasts. If you want to change the world for the better and you're at a stage in your life when you're choosing a career, there's tons of useful information and helpful advice that you'll get from this podcast. Even if you aren't planning to change careers, the topics in this podcast are always interesting and important, and you'll gain a lot from it.

I've loved hearing about issues on this podcast that I don't often hear about elsewhere (e.g. guest Leah Utyasheva's proposal of cutting deaths by restricting access to pesticides in low-income countries). Even when I'm familiar with a guest and his or her work, I've been impressed by the approach that Robert Wiblin and other interviewers take—they ask smart questions that other interviewers don't ask.

I also want to acknowledge the amazing companion posts on the 80,000 Hours blog that go up with each episode. There are as many resources as you could possibly want that the 80,000 Hours team make available to listeners: you'll get transcripts and a cornucopia of links.

I love this podcast and hope you will, too!
