With Friends Like These

Is the path to hell really paved with Good Intentions?  

In “With Friends Like These: Good Intentions”, host Ana Marie Cox will introduce people and organizations who set out to make positive change, as well as the ones who ended up doing more harm than good. What’s the brain science behind warm fuzzy feelings? How does altruism change the way we feel about the world? And could trying too hard somehow get us killed? (Spoiler alert: yes.)

From social enterprise to social media, our intention is to find the good - and figure out how it goes bad.
