Singer-songwriters Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers of Better Oblivion Community Center join Kyle Meredith With… to discuss their debut LP, stage diving, covering “Shallow” from A Star Is Born, and eventually having enough albums for a greatest hits. On the more serious side, the three also talk about how themes of alienation and solitude pain this record, and how they’ve made each other better musicians.
