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.
Spring has sprung! To celebrate, today’s episode is a special spring break edition featuring a grab bag of new conversations with some of Negin’s favorite guests. Negin is joined by Pete Dominick (Stand Up! With Pete Dominick) and Mark Thompson (Make It Plain) to talk about atheism and religion. Also, Mike Pesca (The Gist) and Ben Kissel (The Last Podcast On the Left) riff on how to get rid of negative thinking, and finally, Maeve Higgins (Maeve in America) and Benari Poulten (Garbage Time with Katie Nolan) discuss the benefits of being messy.
