Watch the Women of Broad City Interview Sleater-Kinney


There are few women in the entertainment industry on more of a high right now than Sleater-Kinney and Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer. S-K are back this week with their first new album in a decade, while the Broad City duo last week celebrated the return of their Comedy Central series, which Slate TV critic Willa Paskin called the No. 1 show of 2014. So it makes sense that NPR recently nabbed Abbi and Ilana to interview the band in New York City for nearly an hour and a half.

The five got to talking like old pals about a range of topics—feminism, how S-K reunited, gender inequality in music, commercialism, and more. And while the two groups might not seem immediately linked, Abbi insists, “We could not be a show without you guys.” Likewise, Sleater-Kinney’s Corin Tucker noted, “I feel like when we watch your show, I want to write a song.”


It’s also worth sticking around until the interview’s end for a couple great questions from one of Broad City’s executive producers: Amy Poehler.
