I just uploaded a video about how the average person can start becoming an effective altruist. I don't go particularly deep into it (e.g. recommending 80000 hours or getting a career so you can make more to donate), and I think it can serve as a good (if not somewhat profane and snarky) start for people who are interested in getting into effective altruism.
Please let me know what you think after you've had a chance to watch. Thanks!
