Dave Chappelle, Yasiin Bey (fka Mos Def) and Talib Kweli have announced a new podcast. The Midnight Miracle will air on subscription podcast platform Luminary "in the coming weeks." The "salon-style" series, which was recorded in a mechanic's garage retrofitted as a clubhouse during Chappelle's 2020 socially distanced Summer Camp shows, will feature conversations with the hosts' famous friends, with "sketches, impersonations, [and] archival audio clips." According to a press release, they've already edited "more than 100 hours of recorded content," and will feature music by Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, D’Angelo and more for the soundtrack.
"Making a podcast isn’t the obvious next move for me, but it’s the right one," Chappelle says. "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."
