16 episodes

Mind of State is a weekly podcast at the intersection of politics and psychology. Each episode features lively commentary on current events, policymakers, and the body politic, and how we have arrived at this moment, as observed through both a political and psychological lens. We explore how "mind" impacts "state" — and vice versa. Tune in, as co-hosts Betty Teng, a NYC psychoanalyst and trauma therapist, and Michael Epstein, an award-winning filmmaker, engage in nuanced conversation with experts from the worlds of politics and psychology as well as others from related fields who have studied the complex dynamics between individual/group psychology and political processes. Mind of State is produced out of Hangar Studios in NYC, by Michael Epstein, Jonathan Kopp, Thomas Singer and Betty Teng. New episodes released Tuesdays. [Mind of State concluded Season One after Episode 15 and will return for Season Two after a brief hiatus.]

Thought provoking

I really like the intersectionality here. The combination of psychology, politics, and philosophy is fresh and interesting.

What a superb podcast. As the child of a psychoanalyst and a psychotherapist, I was particularly fascinated by this confleunce of politics and psychology. Well done!
