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.

This week we're bringing you about three podcasts worth of content. Because we're working harder, not smarter.

Virgil successfully explains what an NFT is to Brie, who only gets moderately mad at how stupid the concept is, leading to a philosophical conversation about the nature of value and the show's latest get-rich-quick scheme. Also at the top, Brie roasts Virgil's water bottle for a solid 7 minutes.

Then the pair are joined by our panelists Kylie Brakeman -- the front-facing-camera comedian who won over the left with her parodies of blue-check liberals, and Carlos Ramirez-Rosa -- Chicago Alderman, Illinois Vice-Chair of Bernie's 2020 campaign, and first socialist elected in the Second City in nearly a century. They talk comedy, local politics, and a collection of absurd media clips from Jen Psaki's bromides to Chris Cuomo's prop work.

Finally, Virgil reads Brie some of the unhinged defenses of Andrew Cuomo from his most ardent supporters, and Virgil and Brie tackle the question: Is Cuomo, in fact, a Black woman?
