In May of this year, the hosts of five prominent late-night talk shows conceived an idea: to convene weekly discussions addressing the ongoing Hollywood strikes.
What resulted from these gatherings were a series of engaging and amusing dialogues.
Now, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, and John Oliver have partnered with Spotify to introduce a brand-new limited-series podcast, “Strike Force Five,” granting fans access to these previously private conversations.
All proceeds generated from “Strike Force Five” will be directed towards supporting the staff who are currently out of work from the respective shows of these hosts.
The hosts will infuse the show with their distinct perspectives, viewpoints, and humor.
The podcast which was launched on August 30 is available on most major podcast platforms and is scheduled to consist of a minimum of twelve episodes, with each host taking turns as the rotating moderator.
This includes staff members from “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” and “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.”
The podcast will be hosted on Spotify’s Megaphone platform, with Spotify serving as the exclusive sales partner.
Additionally, “Strike Force Five” has secured support from Mint Mobile and Diageo (including brands like Aviation American Gin, Bulleit Frontier Whiskey, Casamigos, and Ketel One Vodka), who have joined as co-presenting sponsors for the show.
