Dave Chappelle’s personal life has taken on a near-mythic existence. But now the comedic legend is pulling back the veil to give fans a peek at a couple of his long-standing friendships.
On Tuesday, Chappelle announced that he’ll partner with the Luminary subscription podcast network to launch The Midnight Miracle with co-hosts, close friends, and members of Black Star, Talib Kweli and Yasiin Bey.
The trio will host guests from their famed friend group (which is known to include Chris Rock, Common, and Kanye West) as well as other cultural icons. Through these conversations, they’re hoping to innovate in the podcast space and offer thoughtful critiques on the world we live in.
“Making a podcast isn’t the obvious next move for me, but it’s the right one,” Chappelle said in a release. “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.”
