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.

We talk to organizer, author, and one of the most important labor voices on the left Jane McAlevey. She explains why there's no substitute for the power to withhold labor, why more organizing must precede calls for general strikes, and why celebrating Manchin's PRO Act cosponsorship may be a strategic mistake if not tied to calls for filibuster reform.
