ABOUT

Mind of State is a weekly podcast that lives 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 distinguished 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 and recorded out of Hangar Studios in NYC, by Michael Epstein, Betty Teng, Jonathan Kopp and Thomas Singer.

New episodes released Tuesdays.
