Fake the Nation

By Headgum & Negin Farsad

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.
