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.

Briahna speaks with Batya Ungar-Sargon, Deputy Opinion Editor of Newsweek & author of a provocative new book titled Bad News: How Woke Media is Undermining Democracy. A self-described "former woke," Batya is now skeptical of left media culture that feels increasingly elite & distant from journalisms working class roots. But while Brie & Batya agree on mainstream media's deficits, they disagree on the extent to which "wokeness" itself is the problem. They debate intersectionality, defund the police, free college, AOC, left immigration policy, & more. We've been saying this a lot recently, but this is a good one. Thank you for supporting Bad Faith and enabling us to do substantive, in person interviews like this one.
