At some point in season 2, the main character stalks his co-workers as his paranoia gets the better of his common sense. In season 3, there is an episode where the main character is being followed. It's also worth noting that being watched and, to an extension, being able to do nothing about it are in statements, as well as the plot.

Sort of ? minor, in season 5 (trying to keep it spoiler free)

someone tormented by ants becomes a part of the ants that also torment other people, and when given the chance to go back to being tormented by them, refuses. but also he isnt completely on board with becoming something that torments other people. it was one or the other

There is an entity that causes fear by killing and then imitating a person. The entity is capable of perfectly convincing everyone they are that person, but purposefully lets at least one or two see through the ruse so that they are tormented by how their memories do not match what seems to be reality. The entity also affects photographs, contributing to the fear of insanity and wrongness

Two major characters' backstories involve having antagonistic relationships with emotionally abusive parents. Some statement givers mention having bad relations with their parents but in most cases it is an offhand comment, and not overtly detailed.

It is relayed second-hand that a character's motivation was the death of her childhood cat approx. 50 years ago, however Writer Jonny Sims has said that this is neither canon nor non-canon, as he doesn't know if the character was joking or not. He has also said that no harm will come to any pets the audience meets, such as Major Tom (MAG 16) or The Admiral.

There's no one directly saying that but there is a moment when one of main characters says "Maybe I just thought joining up with you would be a good way to get killed" so it's kinda implied ?

In MAG 116 and MAG 118, while not exactly anxiety attacks, two main characters have breakdowns over information being forced into their heads by one of the antagonists.

MAG 90: Body Builder has discussions of extreme body dysmorphia, unhealthy self-image, and alludes very heavily to eating disorders, though the subject itself is not directly discussed.

So the answer is technically no but the main character (Jon) is someone a lot of people find to be autistic coded so be careful.

- in statements, many occurrences of suicide or things that look like it, sometimes very violently, sometimes mundane, sometimes through supernatural means. Characters are often supernaturally manipulated into putting themselves in danger, or driven to suicide after trauma. At least one case of death by hanging (MAG008), 2 self-immolations (MAG037 and MAG055), a few jumpings (MAG046, MAG075), some self-stabbings.
S4 adds: 124 (a supernatural being jumps out of a high place (probably surviving it) and a man's murder is covered up in-universe as being a suicide), 125 (a supernaturally-frenzied man impales himself on own weapon); neither involve mental illness or suicide ideation.


- (S3 SPOILER) A main character more or less deliberately sacrifices themself while in a bad place psychologically, and being explicitly referred to as having a death wish. (Episode: MAG119)

In a way, yes. SPOILERS: in MAG196, Annabelle Cane says to Martin, "you have no idea who's listening, do you?". At the end of MAG200, Basira talks into the recorder and says "If anyone's listening, goodbye. I'm sorry and... good luck."

I forget what episode it is, but when a minor character is being born, her mother is burned on a ceremonial fire while giving birth. It is not lingered on, and there are no sound effects of the actual event. It is told through a former cult member telling their story

A character describes himself briefly as "not the smallest guy in the world". This is not self deprecating and only serves to better set the scene for fitting through a small space. It is not touched on again and he is not insulted for this fact.

Characters occasionally hesitate on what is the appropriate pronoun to use for monsters (she" or "him" vs "it"). At least one monster calls itself an "it" and is sometimes still referred to as "him", but it doesn't appear to be a big deal.

A character-of-the-episode mentions (vaguely) having some difficulties when she was outed as being trans, but with no mention of misgendering. She is consistently referred to with the correct gender before and after we learn that she is trans. (Episode: MAG100)

In addition to being an audio medium, the exact fates of most statement givers are unknown, so it's impossible to say who the first death even was

A minor character in episode 92 is implied to discriminate against a Jewish minor character, who proceeds to exact revenge. I'm Jewish and it's one of my favorite episodes so far.

in the sense that no one is safe"; the survival/death rate so far is pretty equal between LGBT and non-LGBT characters.

In season 1, the main character dismisses characters who have issues with addiction or mental illnesses and berates them for it. This stops after the first season and it's learned he deals with some level of addiction + mental illness as well. In MAG 122: Zombie, while not directly stated to be about mental illness, the statement giver's attitude towards those he perceives as processing emotions incorrectly reads as such.

It is a podcast, no visuals. There is a small moment where one character is caught walking around in his underwear when he thinks he is alone, but he is not very distressed and it is played for laughs.

There's a car accident in episode 70, "Book of the Dead," as a possible nasty death for a statement giver. It's a quick mention, but does linger on how the speaker would die (canon-typical violence) and might be triggering for some. Section is 10:22 to 11:00 for anyone who needs to skip.

This is a horror audio drama; depending on how intense your reaction to this is, it may not be a good show for you. That said, it is all audio, so no visual gore.

There are multiple characters using guns through the series, so there are the sounds of gunfire and people being shot in, I think, all seasons.
