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.

Professor and iconoclast Norman Finkelstein's long-awaited book is finally out! He and Briahna discuss chapters on Ta-Nehisi Coates & Kimberlé Crenshaw in the wake of news that those authors and others have been omitted from the African American AP curriculum. Does the cancel culture critic have a defense of these figures being canceled despite his substantive agreement with them? Also, what does Norman, a staunch advocate of Palestinian rights, make of Ilhan Omar's ejection from the Foreign Affairs committee? The critic of identity politics weighs in on the choice to defend Ilhan as "a black woman." Finally, Norman gives his takes on the Bernie movement, the future of electoralism, and everyone's favorite topic -- Marianne 2024.
