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.
week, theNew York Timespublished a 20,000-word deep
diveintoFox Newshost Tucker Carlson and the
political views he espouses to the biggest audience on cable news.
Now, in the wake of a mass shooting event in Buffalo allegedly
inspired by his ideology, Carlson is coming under even greater
scrutiny. Recorded prior to the tragic shooting events, this
episode explores how Tucker has achieved such popularity, how
liberals have failed to respond effectively, and whether the left
is negligent in largely ignoring the Tucker phenomenon. How does
one push back against "replacement theory," the American
Exceptionalism that wrapped up in the guise of "anti CRT" advocacy,
and a narrative that anticipates accusations of racism and uses
them to argue that Tucker Carlson is the real victim? Is it enough
to refocus the conversation on class issues and point out that the
right is doing faux populism? Does avoiding the culture wars mean
throwing minority groups like Trans Americans under the bus? A
thoughtful panel comprised ofMaximillian
