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.

As war rages in Gaza, Briahna sits down with the son of an Israeli general who was raised a patriotic Zionist, but whose perspective changed after the tragic loss of his niece to a terrorist attack. Driven by that tragedy to figure out what why a Palestinian suicide bomber would take his own life along with the lives of innocents, Miko Peled began questioning everything he believed about Zionism. In this candid and emotional interview, the author of The General’s Son: The Journey of an Israeli in Palestine grapples with provocative and vital questions, like "Does Israel have a right to exist?" and "Should we in the West refer to Hamas as a terrorist group?" -- the central issues to a century-long conflict that someone with Miko's life experience is most qualified to delve into. A fascinating and fearless episode giving honest context to the state of innocent millions desperate to escape the cycle of violence in the Middle East.
