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.

This week, Seattle city council member Kshama Sawant returns to the podcast with an analysis of the ongoing infrastructure battle, and an update on the recall campaign against her. Brie asks her how she plans to best the corporate interests aligned against her, and whether there are any lessons learned from the effort to challenge India Walton's win in Buffalo, and Nina Turner's defeat in Cleveland. The pair then interrogate the strategy around the infrastructure fight, and Kshama offers advice on how to know if a political battle is real or merely pageantry. You can support Kshama's solidarity campaign at, and learn more about Socialist Alternative at
