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 history professor and author of A History of America in Ten Strikes Erik Loomis whether the past reveals the potential of the current labor surge. How did we go from almost no union activity to a workforce strong enough to force FDR into creating the modern social safety net in ten years or so? What role did third party's play, and is the modern left too indifferent to supporting third party movements? And importantly: why is there so much hostility to the idea of a general strike? What does history tell us about the power of solidarity strikes, and what can we do today to make these "illegal" strikes more likely to occur?
