Michael Faye was a grad student when he saw charitable organizations sending sheep to those in need and asked — why can't we give people money directly and let them decide how to spend it? The result of that question was GiveDirectly, a non-profit that's put cash in the hands of about a million people and raised over $700 million. In this episode, recorded in-person, Michael discusses the challenges of giving people money and what he's discovered along the way.
