.@2DopeQueens celebrates the Women's March with very special guests @ilazer, @michellebuteau & @jenafriedman:  

Trump was inaugurated a little over a week ago, and in the days since, there have already been multiple protests across the country (and around the world). Today, we bring you a special show, recorded the evening after over a million women marched on Washington for women’s rights and equality. This episode is full of pussy power - and the queens hope it leaves you feeling energized and strong. 

Phoebe talks to Ilana Glazer (Broad City) about trashy Amtrak passengers. Michelle Buteau (Key and Peele) reminds us that we can do anything together, and Jena Friedman (The Daily Show) corners the abortion joke market.
