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.

The personal is political, so this week an all female panel weighs in on what it's like to date as a leftist. Is political alignment a necessity? Where would you draw the line? A Kamala Harris supporter? A Buttigeig stan? Do heteronormative gender dynamics make it more difficult for leftists women to constructively negotiate disagreements with less progressive men? Do leftist ladies who date women have it easier? Are certain professions "off limits" or can a leftist and a hedge fund manager find true love together? What happens when your dating aspirations are out of synch with your political values? We probe these questions and more in this sure-to-be-controversial episode.

Get to know our panelists: Epidemiologist Gabrielle Perry, MPH (@NotGeauxGabby); comedian and co-host of Reply Guys podcast Kate Willett (@katewillett); public defender & legal commentator Olayemi Olurin (@msolurin) & organizer & former 2020 Bernie HBCU organizing manager Delaney Vandergrift (@delaneypv15). They're all worth a follow.
