There are a handful of artists synonymous with Detroit, and The White Stripes is one of them.
“Nobody has went through and talked about their story in light of their legacy and what it meant to the broader culture.” – Sean Cannon, music journalist
Peabody award-winning music journalist, Sean Cannon teamed up with Third Man Records to create and host a documentary style podcast, “Striped: The Story of The White Stripes,” that takes listeners deep inside the origin and lasting legacy of Detroit rock band, The White Stripes.

The podcast is “a way to celebrate their entire legacy,” Cannon tells CultureShift’s Ryan Patrick Hooper.
“There were tons of books that were written about The White Stripes, but almost all of them were written as the band was blowing up or breaking up. Nobody has actually went through and talked about their story in light of their legacy and in light of what it meant to the broader culture.”
Season one of the series, available now on all podcast platforms, features personal accounts from the bands’ touring mates and additional witnesses to all the action – on and off the stage.
Tune in to “Striped: The Story of The White Stripes,” every Monday on CultureShift through February 24.
