Jessica Renee Williams is an American actress and comedian who was formerly a senior correspondent on The Daily Show. She currently co-hosts the comedy podcast 2 Dope Queens with Phoebe Robinson.
Comedian Chris Garcia returns to WNYC Studios with his new podcast Scattered, which was inspired by his first appearance on 2 Dope Queens. Chris’s dad, Andres, was the centerpiece of his comedy act, and when he died two years ago, he had one dying wish: That his family scatter his ashes off the coast of Cuba -- the country he was born in, and the country that would break him. Chris Garcia’s mom? She doesn’t give a crap about dying wishes. She’s vowed to never go back to Cuba again.  So for now, the ashes are sitting on a shelf in Chris’s closet, between a Paul McCartney record and a Gizmo Halloween mask. As Chris tries to do right by his dad, he sets out to uncover the truth about a man he barely knew, who survived Castro’s labor camps only to lose his way all over again in search of the American dream.             Our theme song is "Please Won't Please" from This is How You Smile by Helado Negro        
In honor of the new HBO specials, we've been revisiting our favorite 2 Dope Queens podcast episodes. Of course, we had to close this series with the ultimate queen -- Michelle Obama. Phoebe and Jessica talk to the former First Lady about her new memoir Becoming, her hair journey, her struggle with the “Angry Black Female” stereotype, and how to raise bold women. Plus: Bono or Billy Joel? Listen, and be inspired. And stay tuned for some brand new comedy shows coming soon from WNYC Studios, including an all new season of Sooo Many White Guys dropping March 19. That's right! Phoebe's back in the studio. Don't miss it.  Support our work and get the new 2 Dope Queens t-shirt! Donate $60 today at 2dopequeens.org/donate.
