“As a bag...”

Negin is 100% extra-credit. She thoroughly researches the 3 topics at hand and provides guests with the subjects and articles prior to the pod so they can also be well informed. This isn’t just a forum for comedians to try out their bits. Negin is funny af, as well as a master of moving the conversation forward, even when some guests try to railroad it. Dig most of her guests, love the topics, and what a voice!

omg negin i very much identify with the conversation regarding scheduling time with friends. my off days from work are thursday and saturday. i see friends probably once a quarter. its so hard to schedule time with friends. most of the time everyone is so exhausted.
i love the podcast i make sure to listen every week because i love the content and topics. thanks so much five stars!

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."
