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 ...
 
With TV Avalanche, Uproxx's Alan Sepinwall and Brian Grubb have fun scaling the heights of the overwhelming new TV landscape to talk about shows they love, shows they watched so that you will never ever have to, and shows that may turn into something special with a little luck and time. Come for the TV nerdery, stay for the occasional talk about silly character names and two of the NBA's most godforsaken basketball teams!

Stop what you’re doing. If you ever wanted to hear an interview with one of the greatest guitarists ever to live; if you ever wanted to share an hour learning about the guitarist’s guitarist—a man who is equally revered by Bruce Springsteen, Slash, and Chuck D—then you need to drop what you’re doing and turn your eardrums to this interview with Tom…
 
Twenty years helps to put a lot of things in perspective in life, especially music. This week on Indiecast, Steve and Ian are reflecting on the musical landscape of 2001 and how it has evolved in the two decades since. The discussion revolves around four specific categories: albums they loved in 2001 that they longer care about, albums they didn’t …
 
Mysonne is one of the most fascinating, revolutionary voices in rap music. He’s a one-time drug dealer now standing on the frontlines as an activist. A seemingly underground artist whose Funk Flex freestyles do mega-numbers. A man who reps his home harder than just about anyone while wrestling with big issues in his bars. Sounds fascinating, right?…
 
This week marked the long-awaited return of Mitski, who has been more or less quiet since the Be The Cowboy tour wrapped nearly two years ago. Now, the acclaimed songwriter is back with “Working For The Knife,” bringing with it the always-insane discourse around her music. The meat of this episode revolves around one of the biggest bands of the 21s…
 
Deon Cole is a comic’s comic. His name has been dropped many times on our show and his appearance on People’s Party feels way overdue. Well... better late than never. We’re thrilled to finally have the legendary comic, Blackish and Barbershop star, and creator of the fantastic special, Cole-Hearted on set. The convo between Cole, Kweli, co-host Jas…
 
October is upon us, and with it comes new records that are perfectly timed to soundtrack the changing of the leaves. This week, Steve and Ian are digging into Let Me Have One More, the anticipated new record from Illuminati Hotties, as well as Strand Of Oaks’ In Heaven. Both artists represent relatively opposite ends of the Indiecast-core spectrum …
 
Tom Segura has his own podcast and multiple Netflix specials. So you might think you know him and what he stands for. But this conversation with Talib Kweli — who he met while opening for Dave Chappelle — brings a new side out of the comic. In this sprawling conversation, Segura, Kweli, and Jasmin Leigh explore issues of race, dive deep on the angs…
 
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…
