About the podcast: 

Phoebe Robinson is tired of being the token black woman in an ocean of white dude comedians. So in this podcast, Phoebe’s calling the shots. She hosts intimate, funny and super honest conversations with musicians, actors, writers and comedians who are killing it in their fields—AND who aren’t white dudes! Stay tuned for the one token white guy (it’s only fair), cameos by Phoebe’s ball-busting executive producer Ilana Glazer, and a whole lot of hijinks.

Season 2 of 2 Dope Queens kicks off on September 20th! Binge Season 1: www.2dopequeens.org

TRACK 3: "Livin' La Vida Loca" by Ricky Martin
Track three is where you kick it up a notch. Add some horns, upbeat vocals, and the tradition of America “discovering” Latin music every decade or so, and you have the smash hit of 1999. But don’t take our word for it: let’s have the writer of Livin’ La Vida Loca and a professor of Latinx studies explain Ricky Martin's importance! You’re living la vida loca if you don’t have this track on your mixtape.
