Hosted by Negin Farsad, Fake the Nation is all the comedy about politics without any of the politics about politics. Every week Negin and a cast of her funniest, smartest and most politically astute friends (John Fugelsang, Lizz Winstead, Dean Obeidallah and others) gather 'round the political roundtable to break down the news, make you laugh, think, and deliver a gut punch to the American political system.
Christian Finnegan (Black and White) and Benari Poulten (The Nightly Show, Garbage Time) join Negin to discuss Trump & the Mexicans (not a band) and his impenetrable, not-at-all phallic wall. They also recap the first Commander-In-Chief Forum -- a light apéritif before we plow into debate season -- and touch on triggers (warning: this podcast has many). Plus, is Trump just a grown up Ferris Bueller? Find out!FTN is hosting its first ever live show at The Greene Space in New York City on September 16th!
