Phoebe Bridgers

The hosts revisit their live interview and performance from 2018 with singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers. She talks to Greg and Jim about the edgy themes of some of her material, how to silence a restless crowd, and the pervasive sexism of the music industry.

Dear Listeners,

For more than 15 years, Sound Opinions was a production of WBEZ, Chicago's public radio station. Now that the show is independent, we're inviting you to join the band and lend a hand! We need your support more than ever because now we have to do all the behind-the-scenes work that WBEZ handled before (like buying insurance and paying for podcast hosting, ugh). Plus, we have some exciting ideas we'd like to try now that there's no one to tell us no!
