Brian Tomasik

Assemble and tremble. Brian Tomasik talks suffering with us.

Brian Tomasik is a researcher at and co-founder of the Foundational Research Institute, a charity that examines the best ways to reduce suffering. We get into the nitty-gritty about what suffering is, whose suffering concerns us most, and how we can decrease or prevent suffering in the world and in the future. Many cans of worms are opened in this episode, though no worms harmed. Or eaten. Yet.
