Toure hangs with Sandra Bernhard-I Love Being Me

Sandra Bernhard is one of my favorite actress/comic/singers of all time. Long before she was Nurse Judy on Pose, she was on the Richard Pryor Show and in Martin Scorsese’s the King of Comedy and so much more. I interviewed her at the very beginning of my career and made a total mess out of it, one of the most embarrassing professional moments ever so I’m thrilled I had a chance to re-interview her and show her I can be an actual professional. Sandra’s a treasure who can do anything onstage. I hope you learn a lot from her. Instagram @toureshow. Twitter: @toure

Toure Show – Cyntoia Brown—I Am Free!

Cyntoia Brown got out of prison just a few months ago. She did 15 years of a life sentence in prison for murder and she admits to having shot and killed a man but she was 15 years old and she had been forced into prostitution by a much older man after years of being raped, abused, and led astray. When the world learned about her case there was an outcry—the system had failed her, everyone failed her. Her story is amazing and it’s chronicled in a heartbreaking book called Free Cyntoia. We talk through her unbelievable story and try to understand how she made it through. Let me know what you think! Instagram @toureshow. Twitter: @toure

Michael Smith was at ESPN for 15 years, he grew up there and became the co-anchor (along with Jemele Hill) of one of the net’s marquee shows, the 6pm SportsCenter.

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

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!
