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 to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald about the relationship between billionaires and the media. Will Elon Musk buying Twitter benefit the platform, or are free speech advocates overly optimistic about the valence of his prospective influence? How did Glenn safeguard editorial independence as he co-founded The Intercept with eBay billionaire Pierre Omidyar's funding, and what happened when that independence lapsed? What does Glenn make of the recent Vanity Fair piece alleging that Peter Thiel is attempting to fund the "post left," and does one need to be consciously "bought off" to advance the interests of tech billionaires? Are the incentives set by the algorithm enough to lead even the best intentioned person astray? Also, we discuss the recent controversy over Washington Post journalist Taylor Lorenz's viral article about Libs of TikTok. What does Glenn make of arguments that he's the one who doxxed the account owner, not Taylor? And what does he make of accusations that he is unfairly targeting Taylor for criticism?
