"Broad City" Star Ilana Glazer Takes Over the Podcast

On this week's show, host Jamilah King hands over interviewing duties to a surprise guest: Co-creator and star of the Comedy Central hit Broad City, Ilana Glazer. This podcast was recorded live in Brooklyn in October by Generator Collective, a group Glazer co-founded that, among other civic engagement gigs, gets interesting people in front of crowds to talk about policy and politics. Just a few days after this recording, Glazer closed down another event in the series when the venue, a synagogue in Brooklyn, was vandalized with anti-Semitic slurs in the wake of Pittsburg's Tree of Life massacre. In this episode, Glazer interviews our very own voting rights reporter, Ari Berman, about the dark history and current absurdities of voter suppression in America—and President Lyndon B. Johnson's toilet habits.
