In this episode, we are joined by Alison Gill, the Vice President for Legal and Policy with American Atheists. We talk with Alison about her recent work charting the challenges and priorities of nonreligious people in the US today. We find out why she has said that “2021 was the worst state legislative session for civil rights in more than a decade.” We also ask whether a “true atheist” can support the death penalty or believe in God.

In the bonus content, available exclusively for supporters on Patreon, we get Alison’s thoughts on the current state of the atheist movement, the divisions between “woke” and “anti-woke” atheists, and how things have changed since she first got involved in American Atheists.
