We’re Sub Pop Records, the Seattle-based record label that’s been going out of business since 1988. You might know us as the label that put out, or continues to put out and just will not shut up about, records by artists such as Mudhoney, Nirvana, The Shins, Iron and Wine, The Postal Service, Sleater-Kinney, Fleet Foxes, Beach House, Father John Misty, and on and on and on.

What you're looking at now is the site for the Sub Pop Podcast, the podcast that's been going out of business since 2016. What is the Sub Pop Podcast all about? It’s where you get to hear the stories from inside, outside, and adjacent to Sub Pop, straight from the source.

The Sub Pop Podcast is produced and hosted in-house at Sub Pop Records, by actual People Who Work Here (P.W.W.H.), namely Alissa Atkins and Arwen Nicks.

Season Two ("Modified, not perfect, but pretty good") will run from October to December 2016 with new episodes coming out every Wednesday.

If you like what you hear, recommended next steps include: subscribe to the podcast (in iTunes or otherwise), sign up for the podcast’s mailing list (below), get in touch with us, tweet about/with/for us using #subpoppodcast.

Thanks you!
