Some are funny stories, others are important to the band's development, and one even involves a very special bed.

    S2 E5: Lots Of People In This World

    So far this season, a lot of entirely unexpected and stuff has happened to The White Stripes. Through it all, you can see Jack and Meg getting a taste of what it's like being an indie rock band that eeks out a living on the road. Like Ben Swank said when we opened the season, that's the hope. that's the dream! What more could a nobody band from a forgotten music scene hope for? Turns out, a lot more.

    S2 E4: Home Has Run Out Of Space

    From their very first jam sessions in the attic of 1203 Ferdinand, Jack and Meg White were intent on doing their own thing. You can see that through the early shows, the singles, the first album — and turning down some of the coolest indie labels around to maintain creative control. But the biggest example up to this point may be the making of "De Stijl," and album that got The White Stripes mentioned amongst heavyweight up-and-comers in the early '00s.

    S2 E2: Nobody To Answer The Phone

    A catalyst for many of Jack and Meg White's crucial connections in 2000 was The White Stripes' first real tour, out to the West Coast and back. Those three weeks would play a pivotal role in the rest of the year — and the rest of their career.

    S2 E1: The Wind Is Blowing

    As Ben Blackwell says this season, 2000 is a crucial year of connections for Jack and Meg White. One of those connections was the greatest radio DJ of all time. Another was the first member of The White Stripes' "team" — someone who would set them on a collision course with industry heavyweights later in the year.

So 5 stars for content

Seems a little rougher in season 1 with framing and seemed a little contrived, but by season 2 its smoother than glass. The remnants of the conversations that people are probably skipping after the credits.....legendary. Such strong content. So happy this exists.

Truth Doesn’t Make A Noise

But this podcast does, great series. Terrific insight, perfect host. It’s better than a good cup of coffee in the morning. Actually it’s on while I’m making coffee in the morning.
