Third Man Records and Nevermind Media have just released the second season of their podcast Striped: The Story of the White Stripes, hosted by Sean Cannon, a Peabody Award-winning journalist and acclaimed public radio host.

Striped Season 2 follows the White Stripes as they stand on the brink of international stardom. You’ll hear the story of their rise in fame from the people who witnessed it firsthand.

The release of Season Two coincides with Third Man’s upcoming 20th anniversary accompaniment to the White Stripes’ sophomore album De Stijl, which was created during the period explored in the podcast.

The deluxe reissue of De Stijl will include a trove of archival photos, show flyers, previously unreleased recordings and covers and a DVD containing two performances from the peak of the De Stijl era, providing valuable context to the events discussed in the podcast. The package will be available exclusively through the Third Man Vault through April 30.

“I celebrated my 18th birthday in Minneapolis in the middle of the White Stripes’ tour behind De Stijl,” says Third Man co-founder and White Stripes archivist Ben Blackwell. “If I can convey a mere fraction of the fun and wonderment I experienced on that tour and that year in season two of Striped, then the podcast listeners are in for a sincere treat.”

“Season One was a so much fun to create, and digging even deeper into the White Stripes’ story has been a blast!” says Striped host Sean Cannon. “It doesn’t hurt that we’re blazing trails by telling a legendary band’s story for the first time in this way — as a podcast instead of the usual book or film.”
