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 spoke to Seattle City Council member Kshama Sawant about the rash of Starbucks coffee locations unionizing around the country, why the Staten Island Amazon unionization effort was successful, the problem with some professional organizers, Chris Smalls' Tucker Carlson appearance, the difference between DSA and Socialist Alternative, how and why Kshama stays accountable to Socialist Alternative (and how the left could keep the squad accountable), whether the Congressional Progressive Caucus's endorsement of Shontel Brown was the final straw for leftists hoping to change the Democratic party from with in, Socialist Alternative's position on Russia/Ukraine, and more. It's a rich, deeply reflective conversation, and you're going to want to listen through to the end.
