Third Man Records launches The White Stripes podcast

ABC/Randy HolmesThird Man Records has launched a new podcast about the history of The White Stripes.

The series, titled Striped: The Story of the White Stripes, is hosted by music journalist Sean Cannon and tells the tale of Jack and Meg White's band from the beginning. You'll hear firsthand accounts from members of bands including The Raconteurs, Pavement and MC5.

"Lately I've been afraid of getting in a car crash and having my last dying words be 'S***, I really should've gotten the White Stripes story down for posterity,'" says Third Man co-founder and White Stripes archivist Ben Blackwell. "This is my attempt to avail myself to somewhat less lame last words."

The first two episodes of Striped are out now wherever you grab your favorite podcasts. There's also a teaser you can listen to online now.
