Engaging discussions on politics and culture

"Fake the Nation" is one of my favorite podcasts. And I love listening to podcasts. The host, Negin Farsad, is intelligent, funny, and just overall charming. In each episode, she discusses three topics with two or three different guests. I enjoy hearing from returning guests, like Leah Bonnema, Maeve Higgins, Benari Poulton, and Baratunde Thurston. Their discussions are funny, engaging, and thought-provoking. I'm not always caught up on the news, but these days, I'm all caught up with my "Fake the Nation" eps. I need that "spoonful of comedy to make the politics go down."

Privileged neoliberal circle jerk

I really wanted to like this show, but the host and guests just come off so privileged and out of touch. Check out chapo trap house for lefty politics without all the condescension.
