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 spoke with Jordan Chariton, co-founder of independent investigative media outlet, Status-Coup, about new news out of Flint Michigan, and the algorithmic morass that's choking gumshoe reporting. In an article published this week in The Guardian, Chariton unpacked the new Democratic prosecutor's choice to drop racketeering charges which targeted the underlying financial fraud that enabled the Flint water poisoning crisis. 

After catching us up on the state of Flint, Brie and Jordan strategized about how to expand left media's influence, and why The Young Turks no longer serves the role as a broad, unifying left umbrella under which diverse left voices can thrive. What has motivated the political shift at TYT, and can the left achieve a unified media umbrella without taking big money from billionaires?
