The Third Men Podcast


In Cinerama w/ April March & Mehdi Zannad (extended edition)

Season 6, Ep. 169

Our season is almost over, but we're not done yet! Pop some corn and break out the 3D goggles because we're heading to the CINERAMA DOME along with Elinor Blake (aka April March) and Mehdi Zannad (aka FUGU) to talk about this year's LP In Cinerama! This magnificent new album features contributions from Third Man Records recording artist Lola Kirke, Fela Kuti’s drummer Tony Allen, The Beach Boys’ Marilyn Wilson-Rutherford and many many more special guest stars. April March is of course no stranger to the TMR world, having both recorded a single with Olivia Jean (2021's Palladium) and illustrated the We're Going To Be Friends children's book for Third Man books. In this episode, partially aired during this season's smash hit OPEN SHOW youtube broadcast, we'll chat with Elinor and Mehdi in detail about In Cinerama, their collaborations in general, and what's next for April March. Let's go!

TMR 2022 feat. Ben Blackwell

Season 7, Ep. 177
Ben Blackwell is back! With the calendar year 2022 freshly in the rear view mirror, we here at the Third Men Podcast are once again on a mission to look back at the music, art and output from Third Man Records over what turned out to be a joyful and creatively robust 12 months. Not one, but TWO Jack White solo records were released, heralding a massive worldwide tour from the Third Man himself for the first time in several years. Not only that, but a parade of varied vault releases, legendary collaborations and unforgettable stunts followed in what is sure to go down in TMR history as a watershed moment of copious and successful output. In this special retrospective, 6-time-returning guest Ben Blackwell (co-founder and co-owner of Third Man Records) joins us to shed light on these events…and teases a glimpse of what’s in store for 2023. Does Tropical Gothclub signal a Dead Weather reunion? Can The Paranoyds pierce the zeitgeist in the same way TMR finds such as Margo Price have done so in the past? Can James find it in him to successfully pronounce each member of the Bobby Weir band's names correctly? The answers to these questions and much more await you in this special 2022 retrospective, and we’d like to extend a huge thanks to Mr. Blackwell for not only appearing once more on the show but for all the wonderful art he helped bring into the world this year. Cheers to Third Man, and cheers to 2023 — Happy New Year, everybody!
