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.

The Amy Coney Barrett hearings have exposed how badly the left is losing the ideological battle for the courts. Law Professor and expert on conservative legal philosophy Eric Segall exposes the flimsy pretext of the "textualist" judge, journalist and former Bernie Sanders speechwriter David Sirota makes the procedural case for how Democrats could have slowed down the Barrett nomination, and Current Affairs co-founder and editor-in-chief Nathan J. Robinson shares what he learned from a deep dive into ACB's judicial record.

The panel discusses Barrett hearing highlights, court packing strategies, and how to get Democrats to care about the judicial appointments between election cycles.

At the top, Brie and Virgil assess the public response to their debate with Noam Chomsky. A debate which, of course, they won.
