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.

Brie speaks to Martin Luther King III, MLK Jr's oldest son, about how to hold the Democratic Party accountable to the "base" it largely ignores between campaign season. In particular, Brie asks about Joe Biden's leaked call with civil rights leaders, and what to do about Jim Clyburn, whose policy preferences often align more with Clyburn's donor base than the party's base.

Virgil and Brie weigh in on the status of Neera Tanden's OMB confirmation: What will Bernie do now that Joe Manchin has declined to confirm her, and how might this affect the ongoing negotiations around the fight to include a $15 minimum wage in the next COVID bill?

Also, our producer Ben catches us arguing about eggs.
