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 Brie speaks to Catherine Liu, professor of Film and Media Studies at the University of California Irvine & author of Virtue Hoarders: The Case Against the Professional Managerial Class, about whether the left takes it's criticism of PMCs too far. Is PMC bashing a kind of reductive class identity politics? Is it worth it to try to mobilize the petite bourgeoisie in an electoral context, or leave them to vote for Elizabeth Warren? Do we love a class traitor, or nah? Also, Catherine & Briahna debate the case for a left immigration strategy, discuss the revolutionary potential of media (including recent hit film Don't Look Up," and more.
