McIntosh "for the love of music…”

In the second episode of the McIntosh "for the love of music..." podcast series presented by Talkhouse, Elia Einhorn spoke with Ben Blackwell, head honcho and co-founder of the world-renowned Third Man Records alongside Jack White, and drummer of Detroit band the Dirtbombs. In the talk, Blackwell discusses Third Man's approach to the music industry — their business model, their philosophy, and the decisions behind their curation process. He also touches on Third Man's commitment to integrity and "doing things the old fashioned way;" tells the story of Neil Young and a very old (and expensive) recording booth; and gives a full rundown on the gear that he and Jack White use to listen to records.

100 - Ben Blackwell Breaks It Down

The Third Men Podcast

It's been three years and one hundred episodes, and you know what that means...mistakes! But who better to right our wrongs than perhaps the only man on God's green earth who could possibly know more about Jack White than Jack White himself: Third Man Records co-founder, co-owner and inventor of disco Ben Blackwell! That's right folks, Ben is back to take your humble co-hosts on a tour of our errors in an entire episode devoted to the longest-running segment in Third Men Podcast history: Stop Breakin' Down. In an effort to always bring you the most accurate information possible, the Stop Breakin' Down segment provides us a space to issue corrections on inaccuracies from past episodes, and correct any mistakes that we've made along the way. With Ben on the line, we've poured over our first year's worth of shows to highlight each incorrect assertion, each astute listener correction, and turn them loose on Ben's brain in the desperate search for insight on a whole host of topics. From Jack's drag racing skills to why it's OK to break up a nativity set and everything in between, Mr. Blackwell is here to right the ship, and we're delighted to have him! Paul and James are so happy & proud to bring you this podcast and are beyond thrilled to have 100 episodes under our belts - thanks to all our listeners for making this possible. And thanks to Ben Blackwell for being here to celebrate with us, Third Man's support and encouragement means the world. It's episode 100! Gonna make you lose your mind!
