Have you ever heard of Louis Congo? What about the forgotten Downwinders or The Devil’s Bible? These are just a few examples of people, events, and things from our past that have been lost to time. They’re important in the greater context of our understanding of the world and how our past shaped our present, yet they never made it into history books. In this bi-weekly podcast, freelance journalist, Crystal Ponti, digs up extraordinary excerpts of forgotten history, bringing her passion and l ...

Come for the TV nerdery, stay for the occasional talk about silly character names and two of the NBA's most godforsaken basketball teams!

Today, September 24th, marks 30 years since Nirvana released Nevermind. In the last three decades, people have already said pretty much everything there is to say about the Washington grunge outfit, but that isn’t going to stop Steve and Ian from reminiscing about one of the biggest rock albums of all time on this week’s episode of Indiecast. Never…
 
Our guest today is a wordsmith and a true son of Los Angeles. In a single decade, he dropped nine mixtapes, including classics like The 25th Hour, Future Street/ Drug Sounds, Best After Bobby, From The Westside With Love, and The Yellow Album. He’s also released eight studio albums throughout his career, including From the Westside with Love II, Ge…
 
It’s that time again: Steve and Ian are taking questions from listeners. This week’s episode of Indiecast kicks off with a recap of last weekend’ Pitchfork Festival, before diving into a discussion of bands that started their career in the indie world before eventually growing to a point that their indie cred became nonexistent. Bands like The Blac…
 
Bob Saget. You might know him as America’s dad. We know him as a bold, hilarious, often-profane comic—loved by his peers and committed to his craft. In this episode, Saget talks about the irony of being mentored by Rodney Dangerfield then becoming “America’s Dad” on Full House, getting pigeonholed in his career, fighting cancel culture, hanging wit…
 
This week, Steve and Ian are getting ready for festival season. Pitchfork Festival is finally here, featuring sets from Dogleg, Oso Oso, and Bartees Strange and marking the tripling of the fest’s notorious “token DIY/emo” acts. This year, festival season arrives in the fall, which leads into a question from a listener asking which albums are indica…
 
Blueface is the youngest guest we’ve ever had on People’s Party. To put it in context, he was born the year before Kweli’s Black Star. But in this conversation, the two rappers find plenty of common ground -- discussing gang codes, Snoop’s sway over LA rap, navigating stardom, social media, and the death of Pop Smoke, among other topics. You may fe…
 
What’s your biggest fear as a concertgoer? For Steve, it’s having to do a Number 2 at a show — even nice venues with good toilets seem like a terrible place to spend any significant amount of time. This is perhaps the exact thought that went through the head of the person who had an unfortunate bowel movement in the mosh pit at a Turnstile show las…
 
Jaleel White is not Steve Urkel. That’s obvious. But it’s hard to imagine a time in recent memory when a single character so dominated the career and conversation around a single actor. In this episode of People’s Party with Talib Kweli, White wrestles with that legacy, explains the conversations and struggles behind the scenes on Family Matters, a…
 
During last week’s episode, Steve and Ian wondered if the latest album from Lorde, was going to follow a similar trajectory to recent releases from Clairo and Billie Eilish — LPs with rollouts that feel very muted and underwhelming, but the final product ultimately left them feeling pleasantly surprised. Solar Power, however, never manages to spin …
 
Open Mike Eagle isn’t just one thing. He’s been on tour and had his own Comedy Central show—proving that he transcends easy definitions. He’s a polymath, and follows his creativity wherever it takes him—even if that means talking about divorce and depression. Box him in at your peril. In this episode of People’s Party with Talib Kweli, Kweli and Mi…
 
This week’s episode has Steve and Ian discussing a band that wouldn’t have fallen into the show’s purview on their last record. But the new record from San Francisco black metal heavyweights Deafheaven doesn’t sound very much like black metal at all. Instead, Infinite Granite is a genuine departure, a straight-up shoegaze record that starts the ban…
 
You want to laugh? Moreover, are you ready to understand the fine art of roasting and where it intersects with hip-hop? Jeff Ross has you covered. Yes, People’s Party fans, the Roastmaster General is here in the flesh. He’s telling stories from his incredibly rich comedy career, roasting Talib and Jasmin, and breaking down the art and craft of come…
 
It’s been a big week in the indie rock world, from the return of Big Thief to updated Covid policies across the live music ecosystem. Steve and Ian cover both of these topics in the opening minutes of the latest episode of Indiecast. The meat of this week’s episode comes in the form of a discussion of new albums from The Killers and Bleachers. The …
 
If there’s one person that the whole rap world is talking about this month, it’s Isaiah Rashad. The TDE label star and rapper behind the acclaimed new album The House is Burning, is getting love from every corner right now. The day before the release, Rashad sat down with Talib Kweli and Jasmin Leigh with hip-hop on the brain. This is a real rap co…
 
During last week’s episode, Steve and Ian took some time to theorize that Billie Eilish’s new album Happier Than Ever might be heading in the direction of a sophomore slump. However, the latest effort from the young superstar is a good example of an LP featuring a handful of underwhelming singles that misrepresent and otherwise pretty good album. H…
 
To call Terrace Martin a musician feels like an understatement. His musical tastes and talents range so widely and his list of collaborators is so vast, it feels like there should be a whole other word for it. This is a man who has worked with everyone from Stevie Wonder to Snoop and Kendrick Lamar to Kamasi Washington. He plays multiple instrument…
 
Time flies when you’re having fun: this week marks the one-year anniversary of Indiecast! Steve and Ian kick off the new episode with reflections of their highs and lows from a year of doing the show, and take a moment to thank all of the listeners who have engaged with the show and submitted questions. The meat of this episode has Steve and Ian re…
 
We’ve had a few guests who fall into the “your favorite rapper’s favorite rapper” category, but Skyzoo certainly deserves that claim. We’re talking about a man who has worked with everyone from Black Thought to Lloyd Banks to Dr. Dre to John Legend. He’s versatile lyrically and career-wise and his thoughtful flows resonate on the lyrical and themat…
 
With new music incoming from The War On Drugs, The Killers, and Coldplay, this episode of Indiecast asks the question we’ve all been thinking: is heartland rock stronger than ever or drawing its last breath? The staying power of the aforementioned acts is undeniable, but at the same time there aren’t many up and coming acts who are creating music t…
 
There are a lot of actors who are generous with their time and energy in helping others. A handful who take on the title of “activist.” And a very select few who live up to that designation, day in and day out. Kendrick Sampson is part of the latter group. This man does the work. Sometimes that means speaking at BLM rallies. Others it means lending…
 
This week’s episode opens with Steve and Ian discussing recent albums from the offspring of famous people. This leads naturally into a conversation of Sling, the new sophomore album from indie pop phenom Clairo. Claire Cotrill’s parents are well-connected in the music industry, which many haters use as a way to discount her success as an artist ove…
 
Normally our show is a career retrospective, but today we’re doing something different -- interviewing an artist at the start of her arc. Our guest today grew up in hip-hop. This is a woman who has been reciting Lil Kim bars since before grade school. She started writing poetry at age 11. She’s a novelist, a rapper, and a songwriter. Maybe you saw …
 
As is tradition, this week’s episode of Indiecast has Steve and Ian taking questions from you: the loyal listeners. Questions were fielded from all around the globe, leading this Mailbag episode to revolve around a provocative conversation about topics like the state of music journalism and which medium is best for learning about an artist in 2021,…
 
Raekwon the Chef is in the building! You know what that means? No punches pulled, no questions dodged. It’s all kept 100, 100% of the time. When Rae sits down to talk with Talib Kweli and co-host Jasmin Leigh, there’s no need for chit chat. The trio gets into the meaty convos right away -- from Wu family dynamics to the Supreme Alchemy of the 5% Na…
 
Late last year, Steve and Ian created the Indiecasties, a special, highly sought-after distinction honoring the best, worst, and downright strangest releases of the year. This week, they’re bringing back the segment for a mid-year review to award titles like Most Valuable Album Cycle (MVAC), Memory-Holed Album Of The Year So Far, and Most “Festival…
 
David Freeman was handed over to Anne Hamilton Byrne at the age of two, when he went to live with the other children at The Family’s Lake Eildon property. It took 12 years before he was rescued by the police, and given his freedom. At 15, he vowed not to tell anyone about his childhood in the notorious Victorian cult, and it was a promise he kept f…
