Fallon, Colbert and Other Late-Night Hosts Are Teaming Up For A New Podcast

Late-night television is getting ready to take over the podcast world.

Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers and John Oliver are teaming up to host “Strike Force Five,” a new podcast debuting Aug. 30 on Spotify.

“Late night unite! Your new favorite podcast Strike Force Five premiers tomorrow with all of our proceeds going to staff and crew affected by the ongoing writers strike,” Fallon wrote on Instagram on Aug. 29, alongside the first look. “Check it out on Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.”

Colbert, Fallon and the whole group are joinging together for 12 episodes (at least), where each will take turns leading conversations about how they’re handling the Writers Guild of America strike in Hollywood.

All five hosts have halted their shows since the WGA strike began in May. The work stoppage has practically shut down the entertainment industry, with everything from movies to television to game shows being rescheduled. In July actors, recording artists and other members of SAG-AFTRA joined the writers on the picket line in July.

The late-night hosts shared that after the strike began, the group got together on Zoom to discuss “the serious issues a work stoppage creates.” Instead, they ended up having a “series of hilarious and compelling conversations.”

And now, they’re opening up their private conversations for listeners everywhere.

All proceeds received by the hosts from “Strike Force Five” will go to out-of-work staff members from the hosts’ respective shows: “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “Late Night With Seth Meyers,” “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.”
