People That I Meet is The Natural History's second full length album. The album was recorded in 2004 and slated for a 2005 release date. However, the band soon split from their record label Startime International, and the album's release was put on hold. The band was looking to release the album on a different label shortly thereafter; however, People That I Meet would not reach the general public for over 2 years. Finally in 2007, the band self-released the album through the online record store CD Baby in digital format only.
Differing from the band's two previous releases in which Max Tepper contributed all lead vocals, People That I Meet features Julian Tepper as lead vocalist on a few songs.
