A daily satirical news fantasy. From the comedy team behind The Bugle.


Imagine a world just like this one where a man called Trump still runs the free world, where Brexit continues to rage on and climate change continues to simultaneously burn, melt and pour on things. Imagine this world also has podcasts and there is a satirical show that speaks truth to power, but this one is hosted by Alice Fraser, and it's released daily.

    294 Election heat news 🔥 ... with The American 🇺🇸

    With just two weeks to go until the Trump v Island US election, it is heating up! Host Alice Fraser managed to pull The American away from his house party long enough to report on one of the hottest elections of all time. But, as a man who has always loved The Rock he feels conflicted with his hero's association with the Democratic Party. 


    The American previously zoomed in on his jet ski in episode 286, so pump out that chest and listen in for a proud and patriotic shot in the arm.
