Continuing the 80,000 Hours Podcast's coverage of mental health issues, I'm interviewing Randy Nesse who wrote a popular book on evolutionary psychology 'Good Reasons for Bad Feelings: Insights from the Frontier of Evolutionary Psychiatry'.

The book tries to use evolution to explain how our brains can be so vulnerable to serious mental health problems — from anxiety to depression to mania to schizophrenia — and I know has been read by many readers of this forum.

You can find more of his work on his website and he recently gave a talk on 'The Future of Evolutionary Medicine' which is a general passion of his.

What should I ask him?
