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 hematologist-oncologist and Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the University of California San Francisco Vinay Prasad for a leftist's critique of COVID policy & the CDC. Has the left let the issue of pharmaceutical overreach be coopted by the right at its own peril? Is there any logic in young people without risk factors getting COVID boosters? How have the risk/rewards changed as variants have changed and risk of death has declined. Should colleges still be requiring young men who are at relatively high risk of myocarditis to get vaccinated? They talk about all this and more.
