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.

Virgil and Brie recap the most important political event of the last week: The new Borat movie.

Also, they briefly review the second and final presidential debate before attempting to unpack Biden's byzantine healthcare policy. The conversation turns into a meditation on the strategic vulnerabilities intrinsic to incrementalism, how a lack of political courage hobbled the ACA, and whether a Biden administration would learn from those mistakes. And drugs. They talk about drugs.

The dynamic duo also discuss Brie's post-debate debate on Tight-Rope Podcast with Dr. Cornel West and Dr. Tricia Rose: The best conversation she's had all year that didn't involve Virgil Texas.
