What is The Sham? A happy hour podcast talking about those things that society tells us we love, but we just can’t. Think about us like society’s Yelp review — open, honest, and to be taken with a grain of salt. We’re here to laugh, cry, and unabashedly love the things we love, or don’t.Wait, what? Have you ever done that thing, and been entirely let down by that thing (looking @ you Times Square), but enjoyed parts of it anyway? Welcome to the Sham Podcast. Because sometimes, life is a total f*cking sham.

Honest. Funny. Authentic.
