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.

Choosing among the 8 "major"candidates in the New York mayoral race might be depressing, but here's some good news: Ranked Choice Voting means you can include some lesser known candidates on your ballot -- candidates that actually reflect your values. In advance of election day, which is on Tuesday June 22nd, Brie spoke to two progressive candidates. First, she spoke to Art Chang -- a Bernie-voting son of Korean immigrants who grew up in Jim Crow Atlanta. He's running on universal childcare, revitalizing the arts, and automating social safety-net benefits. Brie asks him about his private/public background, and why those lefties who have been burned by Andrew Yang's corporate pivot shouldn't be wary of his corporate roots. Next, she spoke to rapper and community organizer Paperboy Love Prince, who received more votes from New York City residents than almost anyone in the race when they ran for congress against a 26 year incumbent last year, winning 20% of the vote. (They also won more votes than AOC in her congressional primary). Come for rap lyrics about Eric Adams, stay for the substantive analysis of what working class New Yorkers are going through, and what Paper plans to do to help.
