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.

Did Bernie do enough to win the Black vote? Is the left doing enough to push back against the narratives spun by Black figureheads and media figures who fatally impacted Bernie's chances in South Carolina? What opportunities does the "Black voter block" present to a left looking for leverage with the Democratic Party? How do we contend with the weaponization of identity? On this last episode of Black History Month, we put those questions to Adolph Reed, Professor Emeritus of Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania; Paul Prescod, public school teacher, political liaison with the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, and contributing editor for Jacobin; and Dean Robinson, Associate Professor of Political Science at UMass Amherst.

But first, Virgil and Brie give a Neera Tanden update in their new segment NEERA WATCH, and Brie and Virgil explain their wrong opinions on Pod Save America and Bobs Burgers respectively.
