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, Briahna asks experts pointed, pragmatic questions about how to nationalize the energy sector. With the public discourse centered on high gas prices and the climate crisis is looming bigger than ever, it seems odd that the left is silent on a solution that could deliver big benefits to direct consumers and, well, everyone who enjoys a habitable earth. What does the Tennessee Valley Authority teach us about state-owned energy projects? What should we learn from the Obama-era nationalization of GM? We've done before, other countries, like Sweden, do it all the time, so why is the idea of "nationalization" such a bete noir -- especially among the left? Matt Bruenig, returning to the podcast, is the founder of the People's Policy Project think tank. Johanna Bozuwa, co-manager of the climate and energy program at Democracy Collaborative, has written a detailed paper on how we can actually "nationalize this."
