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, author, political theorist, and professor of political science Corey Robin joins Bad Faith to unpack his recent article about how AI is disrupting how writing is taught across the country. The tech has gotten so good that it's nearly undetectable, and the temptation to cheat on at-home essays is making many teachers consider whether all essay writing should happen in class. But the trade-offs are obvious: Should limited class time be taken up by in-class essays? Is the pedological benefit of at-home essays worth losing dynamic, Socratic in-class learning? What are we trying to teach kids with longform writing assignments anyway? Should we lean in to technological help in writing the way we've all become accustomed to spellcheck? Didn't Captain Kirk teach us that rigging technology to help you ace a test isn't actually cheating at all? Is writing obsolete? Listen to this podcast instead of reading something to find out.
