Toure Show Ep 88 – A$AP Ferg—I Am The Streets

Ferg is one of my favorite modern MCs because he’s versatile, raw, smart, and his flows are ill. Plus he’s a designer with all kinds of dreams to make clothes and furniture and everything. This conversation goes far away from what I’d planned because he’s brilliant and I love that. Instagram @toureshow. Twitter: @toure

DMC is one third of Run-DMC the most important group in hiphop history. Run-DMC were rap’s first superstars and their success helped the genre become a global phenomenon. But through all the triumphs, DMC was unhappy. He was an alcoholic who became depressed and then suicidal. He thought about how to kill himself all the time. Then he found out he was adopted. This is an amazingly honest life story. Let me know what you think! Instagram @toureshow. Twitter: @toure

Toure Show – Susan Rice—I’m A Survivor

Ambassador Susan Rice was President Obama’s National Security Advisor for four years. She was the first one from the administration to go on TV and talk about the Benghazi attacks and the Republicans made her pay for that with an unending series of attacks that cost her a chance to become Secretary of State and ended up making her 9 year old daughter have frightening hallucinations. The Republicans’ attack on Rice was political, and personal, and had nothing to do with the actual tragedy that took place in Benghazi. Rice talks about all of this and more in her new memoir Tough Love and on this show. Let me know what you think!

Toure Show : Lawrence O’Donnell—I Am the Last Word

Lawrence O’Donnell is one of the best TV hosts in cable news. He’s a man of passion and intelligence who prosecutes his subjects and sometimes his guests in a way that recalls a lawyer doing a cross examination. He’s had a fascinating life—he’s hosted The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC for almost ten years, he wrote for the legendary TV show the West Wing, he was an advisor for New York Senator Daniel Moynihan in the 90s. We get into all of that and disdain for Donald Trump in this fascinating conversation. I’ve known Lawrence for a long time so this was a treat. Let me know what you think!

Toure Show Episode 101: Malcolm Nance!

Malcolm Nance is the author of a powerful new book about how Russia lured in and controlled Trump called The Plot To Destroy America. He knows Trump isn’t gripped by a fear of kompromat but a love of money. He was also in the Navy for over 35 years, reaching the highest levels and fighting in combat on multiple continents. He talks about Trump, combat, guns, crazy war stories, and how to survive being taken as a hostage. He’s an amazing American. Great conversation. Let me know what you think.

Toure Show Episode 99: I Am Black In the Trump Era

Politicon is an annual multi-day political festival that now takes place in Nashville. I conceived and moderated a panel where I wanted to get some of my smartest Black friends onstage to talk about how they feel about being Black in the Trump era. I feel under siege, I feel rejected, and I feel like the country is in an era that’s painful and frightening to me and people who like me. I feel like the MAGA hat is the new Klan hood and it scares me to see it worn so brazenly and thoughtlessly. I wondered how others were feeling about being Black in the era of Trump. We had six awesome panelists—April Ryan the White House reporter, Malcolm Nance the superspy who just published the Plot To Betray America, Elie Mystal the legal analyst, Lexi McCammond the Axios reporter, Maya Wiley the activist and legal analyst, and Briahna Joy Gray the national press secretary for Bernie Sanders. The panel was attended by hundreds.

Toure Show : Lucas Bros: I Am Him ( EPISODE 100!)

The Lucas Brothers are a pair of twins, Keith and Kenny, who are amazing stand-up comedians and comedy writers. They’re hysterical, they’re highly intellectual philosophers, they’re stoners, they’re everything. They’ve got a sitcom coming out and they’re working on another standup special and they’re part of Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show and they’re two of my favorite comics—well, they’re one act, so actually they’re one of my favorite comics—so for the 100th episode of this show it’s something special.
