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.

It's Thanksgiving. We've all been warned not to travel, but the airlines remain open, the Amtrak cafe cars keep serving food to be eaten unmasked, and Republicans are pushing for liability protection with the understanding that business as usual means some of us will die. We spoke to Dr. Steven Thrasher and Dr. Victoria Dooley about how to handle the holiday, and how to shift our political leadership from saying they "believe in science," to acting like it.

Also, Virgil explains why Thanksgiving is his favorite holiday, why turkey isn't a trash bird, and (under duress) what he's grateful for.
