The Harvard Effective Altruism student podcast, The Turing Test, keeps on rolling!


How to introduce Spencer Greenberg? He’s a man who wears many hats– entrepreneur, doctorate in applied math from New York University, researcher, startup founder, and he’s extremely productive in his spare time, too! He founded Spark Wave, a startup foundry which creates novel software products designed to solve problems in the world. A few of the issues they’ve tackled are scalable care for depression, and technology for improving social science. He also founded ClearerThinking.org, which offers free tools and training programs, that have been used by over 150,000 people, designed to help improve decision-making and reduce biases in people’s thinking.

I think the best way to get to know Spencer is by talking to him, so I hope you enjoy getting to know him as much as we did!

Spencer's work (both his blog and his various apps, quizzes, etc.) is some of the most consistently high-quality material I've experienced from anyone producing intellectual content. I've been impressed for years at the way he juggles so many balls, and will be listening to this podcast soon. Thanks for sharing it!
