In this episode, I speak with Will Kiely, the co-organizer of the Effective Altruism meetup in Austin. We discuss what effective altruism is, how it differs from the way people normally donate time or volunteer, and what the Austin group does. If you want to learn how you can spend your time and money to more effectively help people the world over, this episode is for you.

“The community is really focused on using science and reason and evidence to figure out which ways of helping people and improving the world actually make the most difference.”
