In the episode, Vedder and Silver discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic and the current political landscape are affecting their mental health. Vedder also discusses the “dark” lyrics of her father and fellow grunge icons Kurt Cobain and Layne Staley.

“I am honored to be joined by a guiding light in my life, Eddie Vedder of [Pearl Jam],” Silver writes. “We discuss societal and political impacts on mental health, Eddie’s own experiences, and the importance of activism and empathy.”
