Phoebe Bridgers - Punisher (2020)

In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy are joined by their first three-time guest, Sarah MacDonald (@sarahsmacdonald,, to discuss Phoebe Bridgers’ 2020 sophomore album Punisher. This is the show’s first crack at covering a new album without the benefit of at least some nostalgia, so it’s good the hosts had Sarah to guide them. Find out more about Bridgers’ songwriting process, the influence of gender and power dynamics in the industry and how her work connects, and why Bridgers has quickly become considered one of the elite modern songwriters on this week’s podcast.
