pretty sure you are talking about the interview with Dr. Nick Beckstead. https://80000hours.org/podcast/episodes/nick-beckstead-giving-billions/#transcript
Just search the page (command key + F) for the number “2000” to find that part of the conversation.
Thank you. This is definitely at least part of what I was remembering! Was there a separate one then involving arguments for EA remaining apolitcal? (I know there’s may be small mentions of that on several episodes.)
