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.

This week, Brie fulfills a longtime ambition: Chatting with former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis about Star Trek. The two Trekkies discuss utopias, the future of capitalism, Noam Chomsky's viral vaccine mandate take, and what's left for the left. But that's not all. This week is a two-parter, and in the second interview, Brie chats with friend of the show, New York Assembly member Zohran Mamdani, who is now nine days into a hunger strike. Why? Zohran is striking in solidarity with with New York taxi drivers fighting for relief from medallion debt. Listen to learn more and to find out how to support this worthwhile cause.
