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.

Briahna speaks with Joe Cirincione, distinguished fellow at the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft in Washington, D.C & former president of The Ploughshares Fund, a public grant-making foundation focused on nuclear nonproliferation and conflict resolution, about the cold hard facts of hot nuclear war. How is the security of "mutually assured destruction" being undermined by the manufacture of "mini" nukes? How does one morally justify the United States sending weapons to Ukraine? What is the litmus test for US intervention, and how is the ongoing brinkmanship between nuclear powers not a version of the classic Star Trek episode A Taste of Armageddon, in which citizens are killed via cold calculations in order to justify political concessions? How many deaths have to occur before inevitable concessions are made?
