Bad Faith is two shows in one: it's a panel show about politics and pop culture with a rotating cast of performers and politicians, artists and activists, writers and radicals; and it's a two-way podcast where two people from two very different parts of the left make the case for one less terrible world. 

Briahna Joy Gray (@briebriejoy) is a former attorney, National Press Secretary for the Bernie Sanders campaign, co-host of campaign podcast Hear The Bern, and a journalist who is early enough in her political career that she remains (tragically) sanguine.

Virgil Texas (@virgiltexas) is an internet user and co-host of Chapo Trap House.

It's a twofer this week. Brie traveled to Seattle to speak to activist Andre Stackhouse of Whole Washington about his group's effort to achieve Medicare for All in Washington State. He addressed skepticism about the ability to fund universal healthcare on the state level, concerns that a state-by-state approach drains focus from the national effort, and the strategic barriers to success. But first, I spoke to 2016 Green Party VP candidate and national spokesperson for Black Alliance for Peace Ajamu Baraka about third party politics, the importance of internationalism, BLM's controversial statement in support of the Cuban government, how being drafted into the Vietnam War radicalized him, and more. (No spoilers ;)).
