EPISODE #111: Kids Ask Negin Farsad Unanswerable Questions

We did it with Chris Gethard and Lauren Lapkus; this time it’s Negin Farsad’s turn to answer YOUR kids’ weird, unanswerable questions.

Negin is a political comedian who was raised by Iranian immigrants in California. Here she is as a kid with her mom.

In this episode, Negin talks about growing up Muslim in America, and she deftly fields kids’ philosophical questions on creation, bad guys … and a thing about witches that only a kid could imagine.

NOTE: Our podcast is meant for adult ears, but because these questions are asked by kiddos, we figured it was only fair to offer kid-friendly versions of Negin’s answers. If you’re listening with kids, these will fit the bill.
