Today, with the season two debut of That's How I Remember It with Craig Finn, Talkhouse kicks off another prolific year as the most artist-first platform in podcasting, first-person storytelling and beyond. On the heels of a banner 2022, which saw fans spend nearly 200 million minutes with its dozens of shows, Talkhouse Podcast Networkcontinues to cement its place as the go-to partner, producer and distributor for creative voices across a variety of mediums. In addition to That's How I Remember It, Talkhouse has announced the renewal of Santigold's Noble Champions, which Variety named one of the Best Music Business Podcasts of 2022. Premiering later this year, Noble Champions' second season will further push culture forward alongside leading artists, activists and thinkers, building on an inaugural slate of salon-style conversations that ranged from urgent topics like spirituality with Yasiin Bey and Sanford Biggers, to Black Music with Questlove, Angela Yee and Tunde Adebimpe, motherhood with Olivia Wilde and Rebecca Walker, climate change with Saul Williams and Mary Annaïse Heglar, cancel culture with Idris Elba and Dan Kovalik, and more.
Hear an in-depth interview with award-winning writer George Saunders on That's How I Remember It with Craig Finn's season two premiere, out now:
"Working with Craig on the first season of his show was an absolute privilege and we were totally thrilled with how well the show was received by listeners and advertisers," says Talkhouse Executive Editor, Josh Modell. "Craig has unsurprisingly amassed a really special and dedicated fanbase over the years – us included. We are so excited for fans and new listeners to hear what Craig has put together for the second season."
With new episodes of the Top 5-charting music podcast out every Wednesday, That's How I Remember It will see Finn examine the connection between memory and creativity through exclusive conversations with guests like Amanda Shires, Archers of Loaf's Eric Bachmann, Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service's Ben Gibbard and more, exploring the different ways their remembered life experiences reveal stories about themselves and the world. On Friday, February 24th, Talkhouse will also bring That's How I Remember It to On Air Fest, where Craig Finn will host a taping of the show with special guest Kevin Morby, live from the Podcast Penthouse stage of Brooklyn's Wythe Hotel.
Talkhouse will have SHEROES at On Air Fest, as well, for a live taping between host Carmel Holt and Grammy-nominated musician Valerie June. In March, Talkhouse heads to the iHeartRadio Podcast Awards, where its groundbreaking Listening series is up for Best Music Podcast. The Webby-winning network recently took home two inaugural Signal Awards for Best Music Episode (Talkhouse Podcast) and Best News & Politics Episode (The Politics of Everything), and received heaps of critical praise for Björk: Sonic Symbolism, delivering not only "invigorating anecdotes and memories" (Pitchfork), but "a road map to the creative life" (GQ) and "rare chance to listen in as one of the most mysterious and mystical artists working today explains herself" (The New Yorker).
