2 Dope Queens, WNYC Studios’ critically-acclaimed comedy and storytelling podcast hosted by Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson, today released its final episode: an extended interview with former first lady Michelle Obama. The conversation covers motherhood, leadership, the importance  of managing anger, and of course, the former FLOTUS’ new memoir “Becoming.” They also tackled some less Presidential  and more “Dope Queens” type topics like how to keep your hair healthy, U2, and whether you’d rather go to a Beyonce concert or have brunch with Oprah.

WNYC first launched the 2 Dope Queens podcast with Daily Show alum Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson out of a bar in Brooklyn just over two years ago, and the show has exploded ever since.  WNYC On-Demand VP Paula Szuchman credits the girls “honest and intimate comedy, their FOMO-inducing friendship, and the diverse voices they invited into the spotlight” with the shows runaway success.  “We are proud to have been a part of it, and the Queens will always have a home at WNYC Studios. We can’t wait to see — and hear — what they do next!”

The 2 Dope Queens’ farewell statement to podcast fans is available here.
