Touré’s Podcasts: Focus on The Touré Show

Info

It seems nothing can stop Touré’s passion when it comes to speaking about topics he’s interested about. Apart from being a television show host and writer, Touré has also hosted several podcasts such as Democracy-ish and Free MFA withTouré.

The current star podcast in his career, The Touré Show, has received a ton of positive reviews from listeners on sites such as chartable. The show is centered around black people of note such as actors, athletes, musicians, politicians, activists and so on. Touré uses his podcast as an avenue to interview his guests about their struggles and success, and the best way that the show’s listeners can use the stars’ stories as advice on how to achieve their own goals.

Some of the most notable guests that Touré has hosted on the show include Amy Sherald, who painted Michelle Obama, the Lucas Brothers, who directed the movie Judas and The Black Messiah, and Angie Thomas, who has authored popular kids, books.

The main themes and topics that are discussed on the Touré show revolve around the struggles that the guests faced, how they worked hard to overcome said challenges and how they finally got their big break. A good example of this is shown on the podcast’s 283rd episode which features Amy Sherald, a painter, and her struggles to make ends meet. At the lowest point in her life, she could not afford rent or supplies for her art but through hard work and a bit of luck, she won a competition where the prize was getting to paint Michelle Obama.

The Touré show also features stories of inspiring black people who used the power of community to overcome the disadvantages of white privilege and system racism, and to support minorities financially. A good example of this theme is found in episode 29 of the show, where Touré talks with Arlan Hamilton about her work as venture capitalist who supports startups that are owned by minorities who are disadvantaged by a system that supports white privilege.

Other notable topics that have been covered by The Touré Show include how literature can provide temporary escape from oppression for minorities while still educating them, how to combat fear during times that are filled with hopelessness and uncertainty, and how to let go of grudges through the spirit of healing and forgiveness.

Throughout the episodes of his show, Touré asks all the right questions and talks to his guests both on behalf of and for the sale of his listeners. By asking his guests to share their life experiences, advice and nuggets of wisdom, Touré empowers his audience through the dissemination of knowledge and hope.

Unlike other podcasts, The Touré Show is a beacon of hope for minority communities. The host’s and guests’ genuine love of and willingness to help black people and other minority groups prosper is what makes the show a true gem.

You can listen to The Touré show on Apple Podcasts, Audible and Spotify.
