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 co-host of This is Revolution Podcast Pascal Robert about the extreme unrest in Haiti. Prime Minister Ariel Henry, who is implicated in the assassination of Haiti's last president, Jovenel Moïse, is calling for international forces to help suppress paramilitary "gangs" in the country, and the US state department seems all to willing to oblige. But the people of Haiti feel differently -- still distrustful of the US for, among other reasons, it's connection to the assassination of Moïse, and the UN's introduction of a cholera epidemic after the devastating 2010 earthquake. Pascal walks us through the players and interests on the ground in Haiti so that we can follow the story knowledgeably as it progresses.  We also touch on the Black diaspora's response to the Queen of England's death, and the reactionary, listless posture of the left in the US.
