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 speaks to Jeffrey Sachs, chair of the Lancet COVID-19 commission. He once believed expert consensus that lab leak theory was a nothingburger. But as he conducted the investigation and got unsatisfactory answers about what research was happening in US labs, he became determined to prove or disprove lab leak theory — one way or another. Learn more about his muck raking investigation, new clues that indicate a zoonotic origin for COVID is less likely than a lab origin, and how he's upsetting the scientific establishment on this week’s premium Bad Faith.
