Dave Chappelle is venturing into the world of podcasting. He teamed up with Talib Kweli and Yasiin Bey for a salon-style podcast called “The Midnight Miracle.”
The series was shot at Chappelle’s 2020 Summer Camp in The Shack, a mechanic’s garage converted into a clubhouse. Conversations will be interspersed with sketches, impersonations, archival audio recordings, a musical score, and guest interviews throughout this series.
It will premiere on Luminary in the coming weeks as the first show to be revealed as part of Luminary’s latest Apple Podcasts channel, which will debut in May after Apple launches its in-app subscription service.
Chappelle has edited over 100 hours of captured content to create The Midnight Miracle.
“Making a podcast isn’t the obvious next move for me, but it’s the right one. The Midnight Miracle gives you a look into how me and my friends process the world around us, and I think it will change the way listeners think of what a podcast can be,” said Chappelle.
Simon Sutton, CEO of Luminary, said, “The Midnight Miracle pushes the boundaries of podcasting, creating an audio experience listeners have never heard before. It is the exact type of project we built Luminary to support, and we are so excited to share it with listeners across the world.”
