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.

Tired of defeatist, nihilistic conversations about climate change? Same. That's why this week, we invited climate writer Kate Aronoff to talk brass tacks about where the Biden administration falls short, the new bipartisan face of climate denial, and how social movements may have the power to do what captured legislators won't. Kate walks us through the structural impediments to enacting climate regulation that really works, and she explains how our legal and regulatory system has been rigged to make sure we keep paying for the harms from which corporate polluters profit. We can't capitalism our way out of this one. Kate explains why.

Also in this episode: Brie tries to make Virgil sad with maudlin southeast Asian commercials, Andrew Yang comments on Israel, and the gang talks about going to Japan..
