Third Man Records Launches ‘Striped: The Story Of The White Stripes’ Podcast


Third Man Records and Misfire unveiled a new podcast, Striped: The Story Of The White Stripes. Hosted by Peabody-winning journalist Sean Cannon, the first two episodes of the podcast take fans through Meg and Jack White’s early years with interviews from members of The MC5, Pavement, The Raconteurs, The Detroit Cobras, The Dirtbombs, The Soledad Brothers, filmmaker Lance Bangs and more.

Third Man co-founder and White Stripes archivist Ben Blackwell compiled much of the material for the new podcast. “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,’” Blackwell said. “This is my attempt to avail myself to somewhat less lame last words.”

The first two episodes are available now via Apple Podcasts. Stream the trailer below:
