Coming to you LIVE from San Francisco, it’s Politically Re-Active at Comedy Central’s Clusterfest! Joining your favorite hosts on stage are comedian and podcast queen Phoebe Robinson, the brilliantly witty writer (and This American Life favorite) Lindy West, and our favorite undercover investigative journalist, Shane Bauer! We talk about white nationalists taking over Berkeley, the danger of buying into Ivanka Trump’s beauty, and of course, Bill Maher. And for the comedy nerds, a surprise guest shows up on stage… so hit “play” already!
Phoebe Robinson’s got a book and hella podcasts! Read _You Can’t Touch My Hair_ and listen to her shows 2 Dope Queens and Sooo Many White Guys wherever you’re listening to this podcast. And follow her on Twitter, boo boos!: @dopequeenpheebs.
