How to listen

New episodes of Saddest Factory Radio premiere monthly on SiriusXMU (Ch. 35), SiriusXM’s home for groundbreaking music and emerging indie artists.

Previous episodes can be streamed anytime on the SiriusXM app.

What you’ll hear

Since early 2022, the show — which serves up “outside-of-the-box thinking and audio trust falls” — features Phoebe at the helm guiding listeners through artist-to-artist conversations and, of course, her favorite songs.

In the debut episode, the GRAMMY nominee shared song recommendations for fans’ questions — from soundtracking a stolen toothbrush with underscores’ “Everybody’s Dead!” to a drive through the Italian countryside set to “Dead End Street” by Blake Mills.

“I wanted to make a playlist based on when music feels the best … and one of the times music feels the best is when I’m miserable,” Bridgers explained. “When I’m down bad, and I want to be more down and more bad, these are the songs that I listen to.”

Special guests of Saddest Factory Radio have included MUNA, Claud, the other members of boygenius, Matt Berninger, and more.
