Brian and Mike back at it for an intense discussion about altruism and how people think about donating money and charity. In the first part of the conversation, Brian and Mike initially discuss their favorite product of the week then spend time on Amazon’s new announcement about the new Echo with a camera. Brian takes a bullish stand on how new Echo will impact the fashion industry which he writes more in detail here. We took a deep dive into the effective altruism – which seeks to answer the simple question: “how can we use our resources to help others the most?”
