Five years ago this month, Pearl Jam played a now legendary secret show at Third Man Records.  Third Man Records co-founder Ben Blackwell joins Roche and Billie to reminisce  about that special night in PJ lore. Ben gives us a history of Third Man Records including some great stories of the early days of The White Stripes and Jack White's vision for the building in Nashville. Then, Ben gives the backstory on how Pearl Jam ended up at Third Man that night, how the jam session with Jack White came to be, and much more (19:52). Finally, Ben discusses what Pearl Jam means to him during a round of "My PJ Experience..."  including a hilarious Eddie Vedder story and a touching Mike McCready story (49:37).
