In our very first episode, Host Dylan Moscovitch and High Impact Athletes Founder Marcus Daniell discuss the organization's backstory, Marcus' work to connect athletes with effective, evidence-based charities, and just how important it is to harness the power of the collective athlete voice to educate the world about the outsized benefits of giving effectively. Marcus expands on how he found inspiration in Peter Singer and the ideas of effective altruism, his pledge and the meaning it added to his career, and his long-term vision for how athletes can create positive change in the world.
Join us on our journey as we explore the ways that athletes and leaders are doing the maximum good possible and helping to build a future that is... Larger Than Ourselves!
