  Strongly EA-related podcasts
  Podcasts featuring EA-related episodes

Podcasts are a great way to learn about EA. Here’s a list of the EA-related podcasts I’ve come across over the last few years of my podcast obsession.

I’ve split them up into two categories:

  1. Strongly EA-related podcasts: Podcasts run by EA organisations or otherwise explicitly EA-related.
  2. Podcasts featuring EA-related episodes: Podcasts which are usually not EA-related but have some episodes which are about an EA idea or interviewing an EA-aligned guest.

Please add to the comments any podcasts that I have missed. I am always excited to find out about more interesting podcasts!

Thanks for compiling this.

I've created a ListenNotes list with all the "Strongly EA-related podcasts" and a few others here. It displays the most recent episode from each of those podcasts and lets you import them all easily to your favorite podcast app.

Luke Muehlhauser's Conversations from the Pale Blue Dot had an episode interviewing Toby Ord back in January 2011. This is from before the term "effective altruism" was being used to describe the movement. I think it may be the first podcast episode to really discuss what would eventually be called EA, with the second oldest podcast episode being Massimo Pigliucci's interview with Holden Karnofsky on Rationally Speaking in July 2011.

(There was plenty of discussion online about these issues in years prior to this, but as far as I can tell, discussion didn't appear in podcast form until 2011.)

It would be real great if these were hyperlinks...

Would take some time, but might be useful for people gathering EA resources?

Done. Thanks for the nudge to put a little more time into it.

Yes, agree that it would have been natural to include hyperlinks in this otherwise very helpful post.

Pablo's list does include links.
