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 spoke to Palestinian American activist Linda Sarsour and Professor Marc Lamont Hill, author of Progressive Except for Palestine, about what’s currently happening in the region, Biden’s response to the conflict, and the political potential of Black/Palestinian solidarity. Why are so many neoliberal politicos eager to undermine longstanding affinities between stateside Black liberation movements and Palestinians here and abroad? And how can activists and movement participants ensure that the shifting Overton window doesn’t swing back to the “progressive except for Palestine” status quo?

Later in the episode, we speak to Sarsour one-on-one about why BLM leadership chose not to leverage last summer’s protests (and the votes of protestors) in exchange for concrete demands from the Biden administration. Will “vote blue no matter who” be the go-to strategy in 2024? Or will organizers finally draw a line in the sand?
