Third Man Records launches podcast dedicated to The White Stripes

on October 08, 2019, 3:23pm

Last month, Third Man Records released a live album recording of The White Stripes’ last-ever concert. Jack White’s Nashville record label now has a new offering for those nostalgic fans looking to dive deeper into the rock outfit’s past: a podcast dedicated entirely to the history of The White Stripes.

Dubbed Striped, the podcast is hosted by music journalist Sean Cannon. Each 30-minute episode takes listeners on a journey through the band’s career, including the early days spent jamming in Jack White’s own attic.

“Lately I’ve been afraid of getting in a car crash and having my last dying words be ‘shit, I really should’ve gotten the White Stripes story down for posterity,’” Third Man co-founder and White Stripes archivist Ben Blackwell remarked in a statement. “This is my attempt to avail myself to somewhat less lame last words.”

Adding to the Striped conversation are a number of The White Stripes’ peers, collaborators, and tour mates, such as members of Pavement, The MC5, The Dirtbombs, and filmmaker Lance Bangs. White’s own The Raconteurs also appear.
