Effective Altruism is a social movement dedicated to finding ways you can best help others, whether through your charitable donations, career choices, or volunteer projects. EA Radio features talks about these topics that can help you help others better while doing something you're excited about. Lately, we've been focusing a lot on new opportunities in pandemic prevention, charity entrepreneurship, and AI safety. But we also have talks on other important topics like animal welfare, global health, nuclear security, and cause prioritization research. Most of the content is from EA Global videos, packaged for easy listening on the go. If you have feedback or would like to suggest an episode, please e-mail us at contact@earad.io
