Sooo Many White Guys: Phoebe & Tom Hanks! (2/2018)

Love 2 Dope Queens? Duh, we know you do. So you’re gonna loooooove Phoebe’s other podcast, Sooo Many White Guys!

She’s the host and Ilana Glazer (Broad City) is her sexy-ass executive producer.

Each week, Phoebe gets her Terry Gross on with intimate, funny and super honest conversations with musicians, actors, writers and comedians… who aren’t white dudes! But for #diversity, we do have one token white guy at the end of each season. And sometimes, that man is Tom Hanks, like in this oh-so-special interview.

Season 3 drops on February 27th and while, we’re cooking it up for you, we wanted to share a little taste of what we’re about. Also, be sure to check out the archives featuring people like Issa Rae, Melissa Harris-Perry and Hasan Minhaj. Jump on it, people!
