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, Briahna speaks to climate scientists and activists Peter Kalmus & Rose Abramoff about what to do when marching is not enough. Both were involved in a direct action event that resulted in their arrests earlier this month, and are encouraging a turn to non violent direct action as a way to push world-saving climate reforms. I asked them whether they feel groups like Sunrise that emerged as super radical have ultimately helped to cover for the Biden administration's failures, whether strategic property damage falls within the "non violent" category of activities, what the latest IPCC report warns, extreme Don't Look Up moments from the mainstream media, and whether there's finally some willingness in the mainstream to criticize Biden. It's a climate episode that will inspire you, not depress you.
