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.

Last week, platinum-selling rapper Ice Cube met with representatives from both Donald Trump and Joe Biden in an effort to raise the profile of his "Contract With Black America," -- a set of policy proposals aimed at economic uplift for Black Americans. 

When Trump's team attempted to exploit the meeting in a naked bid to peel off Black voters, the internet, well, melted down. 

We spoke to Cube about what really happened, why he's not a socialist, and the radical potential of the Black voter block. Cube was joined on the panel by Director of the Institute for the Study of Race, Stratification and Political Economy at the New School Darrick Hamilton, and organizer with Black Men Build and co-founder of the Dream Defenders Philip Agnew, who offered both contrasting and complementary strategies for progress.  

Brie then interviewed Cedric Humphrey -- the young Black Pennsylvania voter who, at last week's Town Hall, asked Joe Biden to address voter apathy among youths *without* using the words "ain't Black."'

The first time voter offered much needed perspective on what this election looks like to people who aren't tragically #online, and what Biden is still missing.
