In this episode, we talk with Dr. Wil Jeudy, who was named Activist of the Year for 2022 by American Atheists. We talk with Wil about his experience as a secular activist in Texas, starting with a long journey to becoming an atheist and the desire for community. We learn about how Wil has moved from finding like-minded people in Houston to becoming a state organizer and political activist.
In the bonus section, available exclusively to Patreon supporters, we dig a little deeper into the risks and challenges of being an atheist in Texas, as well as Wil’s experience as an urgent care doctor during Covid.
