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 spoke to political economist Clara Mattei about her new book The Capital Order: How Economists Invented Austerity and Paved the Way to Fascism. She explains the invention of austerity politics, how it's been sold to the masses historically, and breaks down a recent Obama interview in which he carries water for what he calls, "inclusive capitalism" when presented with the possibility of transitioning to a more equitable economic system. How does austerity play into the conflict in Ukraine and various "democracy building" neo-colonial endeavors across the world? And what are the alternatives Obama found so difficult to imagine?
