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.

We speak to the one-and-only Dr. Cornel West about the professional consequences of his advocacy Palestine, his tenure battle with Harvard, and what he makes of the gap between the media response to his case versus Nikole Hannah-Jones's tenure battle. How does the silence or complicity of the Black media elite obstruct progress by manufacturing consent for neoliberalism? And how does a flat, racially essentialist understanding who the "good guy" is make progressive advocacy more difficult, from BLM to Gaza? But first, Brie and Virgil discuss what Biden should have accomplished by George Floyd's anniversary using executive orders, the waning sympathy for Palestine, and what the two have in common.
