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.

2016 Green Party Vice Presidential candidate Ajamu Baraka returns to Bad Faith to discuss RFK Jr.'s appeal and the strategic advantages of running as a Dem vs a third party candidate. Is Cornel West hamstringing himself by running outside of the Democratic Party? Is there an advantage to being included in polls during the primary process? Does the #forcethedebate movement help expose the Democratic Party in a way that wouldn't be possible if RFK Jr. & Marianne Williamson were running as third party candidates? Even so, do those candidates loose more than they gain by their association with the Democratic Party? Can you truly run a left campaign "as a Democrat"? And if the answer is no, why? Is the real issue that you can't be adversarial to the Democratic Party as a Democrat, or that no one whose tried has never opted to run in a way that's truly oppositional to the corporate duopoly? Brie also asks about the odds Cornel West will win the Green Party nomination, whether there is tension with Howie Hawkins within the party, & more.
