The 80,000 Hours Podcast is a long-form interview series with people who are working on what the creators consider to be the world’s most pressing problems. Interviews on the show are unusually long, and getting longer, with the current record holder being an interview with David Chalmers on the nature and ethics of consciousness, which is 4 hours and 42 minutes in length.
This questions asks: How long would it take a listener to listen to every episode of the 80,000 Hours Podcast released in 2020, at normal speed?
Question resolves as the total length in hours of all podcast episodes listed on the 80,000 Hours website, where the date listed is anywhere from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020.
This question is part of the Academy Series, a set of questions designed to be an introduction to forecasting for those who are relatively new and are looking for a new intellectual pursuit this summer.
