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’ll host 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.

I love you Pheeeebs , “I’m stuck in a moment”, when I listen to you. You are the “unforgettable Fire” that burns brightly. You are a “bullet in the blue sky”, you make me glad to be a woman,and I would happily eat the “crumbs from your table”. “I still haven’t found what I’m looking for” but you give me the strength to keep being who I am. You taught me “how to dismantle an atomic bomb. “Do you feel loved”. You should, you are awesome, fantastic, brilliant, funny and I’m glad you’re in my car for my 300km round trip every day. Thank you xxxx

I love SMWG Phoebe Robinson is such a warm, intelligent and incredibly funny and engaging person.
I’ve been deliberately trying to filter out the mainstream media noise as it doesn’t represent me as a queer feminist woman. SMWG let’s me hear the voices that I want and need to hear.
I’m 50 and have had no other options but to listened to white men and more recently white women in media my whole life until I just got sick of it and decided to stop listening.
Then I discovered 2DQ and from there SMWG
Thanks Phoebe, Joanna and the team for making this podcast. I love the diversity and hearing voices of POC, women and queers . I’ve also discovered many other great people through this podcast.
