Episode 3: Humanists International Takeover

In this episode we hand the reins over to Humanists International. Humanists International board member and Ghanaian humanist and activist Roslyn Mould delivers a thought provoking opening segment. Afghan atheist Josef Moradi, and Ina Mossin from the Norwegian Humanists Association talk candidly about Josef’s asylum journey, and podcast regular Brian Eggo tackles lies on social media. We also hear from Emma Wadsworth-Jones of Humanists International, and James Ibor and Leo Igwe about that latest news in their campaign to free Nigerian Humanist Association President Mubarak from prison following accusations of blasphemy last year. We end the podcast with Edinburgh local group convenor Cathy Crawford taking the Five Fast Question hot seat.
