Dave Chappelle, Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli are coming together for their new podcast, The Midnight Miracle.

The salon-style show “provides a glimpse into a very interesting season in the lives of the three hosts and their friends” and will feature some of the country’s most influential cultural icons as the trio’s special guests. Recorded during the comedian’s 2020 Summer Camp in “The Shack” — a mechanic’s garage repurposed a clubhouse — the show will include conversations, sketches, impersonations, archival audio clips and a soundtrack comprised of cuts from Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, D’Angelo, Heatwave featuring Johnny Wilder and more.

“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,” Chappelle, who meticulously edited more than 100 hours of recorded content with Kweli and Bey, said in a statement.

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,” Simon Sutton, Luminary CEO, said. Mark Silverstein, Luminary Chief Content Officer, added,  “Talib, Yasiin, and Dave each bring deep wells of perspective to The Midnight Miracle. The conversations between them and their friends are humorous and profound, and the show is edited in a truly unique fashion. We are really proud to be a home for groundbreaking audio like this.”

The Midnight Miracle, created in partnership with Jamie Schefman and Noah Gersh of SALT, is set to premiere in the upcoming weeks on Luminary and will debut on the the Luminary channel on Apple Podcasts in May.
