#BlackGirlMagic: ‘2 Dope Queens’ Podcast Secures Spot on SiriusXM Radio

The Satellite Giant Picks Up 11 Total Podcasts

If you’re a lover of podcasts, then you’re familiar with “2 Dope Queens” podcast, an award-winning podcast hosted by Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams out of New York City who just got picked up by satellite giant, SiriusXM.


According to the Associated Press SiriusXM is giving a radio home to several popular podcasts, picking up 11 programs produced by New York’s WNYC Studios, including “2 Dope Queens” which are among the nation’s most popular podcasts.


The podcast features female comedians, comedians of color, and LGBT comedians, in an effort to represent people from different backgrounds. “2 Dope Queens” is WNYC Studios first comedy podcast.[3]


Both Robinson and Williams are comedy writers. Jessica was formerly a senior correspondent on The Daily Show


Sirius currently airs a handful of podcasts among its 170 channels that reach 31 million subscribers, including one with Neil DeGrasse Tyson. The deal with WNYC announced Tuesday aligns the satellite network with the second-most popular producer of podcasts behind NPR, potentially giving those programs a much wider audience.


The deal is part of Sirius’ effort to diversify content so people will pay for radio when there are free alternatives. It has expanded its country programming this year, added a new talk channel devoted to music, hired new hosts like Brett Favre and aired town hall events and concerts.
