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.
