Every other week on Beginnings: Field Guide, creators deconstruct their favorite projects - from conception to finished product - in order to explore the many different paths the creative process can take.
On today’s show, we talk to Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, the creators and stars of the great webseries Broad City. The two have been performing comedy in New York for many years before starting their show, and after two seasons and growing buzz, it’s now in development at FX with Amy Poehler as one of the executive producers. While hearing Ilana and Abbi’s inspiring story of their hard work paying off, we also found time to discuss the sadness of strip clubs, sneak attack feminism vs. stealth feminism and Uncle Scrooge’s Dick Bin! Also, find out if I’ve ever seen Mark’s penis!
