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.

In her first interview after being fired from The Hill Briahna Joy Gray sits down with the co-hosts of Due DissidenceKeaton Weiss and Russell Dobular, to discuss the long trajectory of attacks from Rep. Ritchie Torres and others that have led to Briahna's dismissal for pro-Palestine speech. This censorship has been a long time coming, and the attacks have escalated since Briahna attended a "Dissident Dialogue" conference early last month, which was clipped and circulated about a week before her ouster in a failed attempt at getting her canceled. Russell attended that conference, and he gives a firsthand account of his experience in the audience and from subsequent interviews with the staff that put together the event.

This is a comprehensive, raw account of what happened -- recorded within 24 hours of Briahna receiving the news that she'd been canceled.

This was not about an eye roll.
