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.

Earlier this month, the online left had a spirited debate about whether it should embrace "patriotism." Is pride in country inextricable from a noxious nationalism? Or can patriotism be redefined as something less jingoistic but equally appealing to the working classes? Should the Right have the exclusive ability to weaponize the stars and stripes to advance their faux populist agenda? Or should the left learn to love America, too? Is political scientist and cultural critic Micheal Parenti correct when he says there is no true patriotism without a love a justice? Or is that just wishful thinking? This week, Brie invited African American History Professor & prolific author Gerald Horne on to discuss whether the white supremacist roots of American History foreclose the possibility that patriotism can work for the left.
