Why Does Great Work Matter? With Dr. Amanda Crowell – Encore | UYGW28
Play • 15 min

We are excited to bring you this encore presentation of our first episode which remains one of our most popular ones. We hope you enjoy! 

In this, the inaugural episode, we start at the very beginning: What is Great Work, and Why does it matter? And, of course, we start where all good podcasts should: with death. 

Join me as we discuss:

  • Why knowing from a young age that we will die sparks our desire for Great Work
  • How Great Work feels
  • Why the screaming face emoji is so important
  • Who am I, and why does Great Work matter to me?
  • What Great Work is, and what it isn't.
