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.

Katie Halper (@kthalps), Leslie Lee III (@leslieleeiii), and Nathan J. Robinson (@nathanjrobinson) join today's panel to discuss the rise and maybe fall of three historic posters: former think tank head-turned-OMB nominee and "loathsome ambassador for Bidenism" Neera Tanden; former President-turned-insurrectionist Donald J. Trump; and former Guardian columnist-turned-podcast panelist Nathan J. Robinson. We break down the highlights of Neera's contentious confirmation hearings, debate the utility of Trump's second impeachment trial, and get a first person exclusive on the latest episode in the ongoing free speech/cancel culture war: The conscious uncoupling of Nathan from the Guardian over what they described as anti-Semitic tweets. (Hint: They were not anti-Semitic).
