Late night hosts support striking staff with podcast

Techstination feature for Thursday, September 7, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.          There’s a new podcast in town.   With the writers’ strike continuing to keep their regular late night shows off of the air… Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers and John Oliver are partnering with Spotify on a new podcast series…Strike Force Five…

“One more time Jimmy.  Hi, I’m Jimmy Fallon.  I’m Stephen Colbert.  I’m Jimmy Kimmel, I thought when you said Jimmy you meant me, Jimmy, but you meant Jimmy… I always mean you, I always.. But when you say Seth Meyers, who do you mean?   I mean John Oliver.”

   It launched last week and will run for at least a dozen episodes with all five participating and taking turns moderating.    All of the proceeds for the hosts will be used to support their out of work staff members.   Sounds like fun…and you don’t have to choose which one to watch.  The name of the podcast again is Strike Force Five.

You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
