Amy Schumer Has a Heart-to-Heart Chat with a 106-Year-Old Woman

Here's a segment from last night's episode of Inside Amy Schumer, in which Amy interviews a lovely woman named Downing who has lived long enough to see the Great Depression as well as the point in time where women wearing pants became a permanent thing.
