I interview David Silverman, the new Executive Director for Atheist Alliance International, a coalition of atheist-centric organizations around the world.

The first third of our conversation is about AAI and its mission, but the bulk of the conversation is Silverman's vehement defense against the accusations of sexual misconduct which led his termination, in April 2018, as president of American Atheists. 

(In the days since this interview was recorded, a new and recent allegation against Silverman has surfaced; this time from fellow activist Rebecca Vitsmun, who claims he "creepy touched" her on the back during a party. AAI has suspended him with pay pending further investigation.)
