In this episode, we are joined by Sam McGuire, the National Field Director of American Atheists. She imparts wisdom on how atheists can organize as well as offers resources and opportunities for groups and individuals. We learn a lot about organizing as we talk about her experience with the Southern Maryland Chapter of the Washington Area Secular Humanists, her role in the controversy over a sex education lesson, and how her work at Reason Rally 2016 led to her current role.

In the bonus content, available exclusively to supporters on Patreon, Sam tells us about the time someone threw holy water on her, and we also get her take on whether reports of the atheist movement’s death are greatly exaggerated.
