Satirist Lizz Winstead is tackling reproductive rights with "Lady Parts Justice." Lizz Winstead has made a career being the watchdog of the watchdog. As a co-creator of The Daily Show in the 1990s, Winstead was one of the first comedians satirizing both news makers and news media. Her current focus is on women’s rights, and she founded Lady Parts Justice, an organization that uses comedy and digital media to advocate for reproductive rights. State of Things host Frank Stasio talked with Winstead about political satire and her comedy on the program today. She joined the program from the WCQS Studios in Asheville.
Winstead performs her show, “Bang The Dumb Slowly,” tonight at 8 p.m. at The Grey Eagle in Asheville and tomorrow at 8:30 p.m. at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro
