According to Spotify, it will launch later in 2023, and will feature in-depth and freewheeling conversations between Trevor and some of the most influential and interesting figures around the world.

We’ll also probably fix every single issue humankind has ever faced so you definitely want to join us for every episode.” ~ Trevor Noah
