In this episode, we talk with Sarah Levin, the founder of Secular Strategies, a political consulting firm that works with policymakers, lawmakers, and non-profit organizations to be effective champions of secularism in the United States. We discuss her political work – from the grassroots to lobbying to serving on the Democratic National Committee’s Interfaith Council. We also talk about why secular people seem to lean left, the possibility of an atheist president, and whether Republicans might ever pay attention to secular voters. We also learn whether a “true atheist” can, for example, eat meat or vote Republican.

In our bonus content on Patreon, available exclusively for Patrons, Sarah gives us a crash course in lobbying and tells us some funny stories about meeting politicians.
