Arlan Hamilton - I Steal White Privilege

You don’t need to work 50 hours a week to get rich. You need to make your money work for you. And you need to know that you can infiltrate the power structure and make their rules for you. Arlan Hamilton is an amazing Black female Venture Capitalist who was homeless not long ago and now has a crowdfunded VC fund that anyone can join (theoretically—right now it’s closed, slots sold out in a day! But I’m hoping it opens back up soon!) But here she talks about going from homeless to VC and how she’s trying to create business opportunities for Black, brown, female and LGBT founders because they are an under utilized resource even though they know how to make a dollar out of 15 cents. A throwback to an important conversation from 2018 with a woman who’s figured out how to steal white privilege and make it work for her. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Neil deGrasse Tyson - I am More Than Science

Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of the most brilliant men alive and I think his genius runs beyond science and into how he’s able to communicate with people. Indeed, he rejects the very notion of himself as a genius—when I asked him about it he said his success is all about hard work. He just reads and writes and thinks all the time. In this conversation I wanted to talk about anything but science, I wanted to get to know a different side of him, so here’s Neil like you’ve never heard him before—on his penchant for hard work, on his father, on wine, and on racism. Also check out his new Master Class on science and communication. This interview is from 2020. http://tryfum.com/TOURE

Toure Show presents Being Black - The 80’s

N.W.A’s “Dopeman” Is one of the illest songs ever made because it takes you deep into the drug dealer’s perspective on selling drugs. The crack dealer was evil but we should still seek to understand what drove him and when we look into his soul we find that like the fiends he served, he too was an addict, but he was addicted to power and money. Crack dealers and their culture had a deep influence on hiphop culture and the Black community. In this ep we go into "Dopeman” with The D.O.C. from NWA and talk to several former drug dealers about how dealers changed the world around them.

Nikole Hannah-Jones - I Live In A Slaveocracy

Original Air Date: January 8, 2020Nikole Hannah Jones is in the news because UNC turned her down for a professorship even though she’s a MacArthur Genius grant recipient and a Pulitzer Prize winner so it’s a good tome to throwback to our 2020 interview. But what’s really going on is she’s the creator of the amazing 1619 project for The NY Times and that project is frightening to the right because it explains how America is still impacted by the legacy of slavery. It is not just our past. We are, today, a slaveocracy. The 1619 project is a podcast, a series of essays, and, soon, a series of books. She is a true genius and I could feel her genius as I spoke to her. She is a person who is toweringly influential in that her ideas have changed many people’s thinking on many issues, people including me. I look up to her intellectually and with the 1619 project she aims to shape the way people see the relationship between America and slavery.

Andy Roddick–I Was #1 In The World

Andy Roddick was a tennis legend—#1 in the world, US Open winner, 3x Wimbledon finalist, and he held serve over 90% of the time for his career. We talk about how to hit a great serve, what it’s like to play against some of history’s best, if he choked against Federer at Wimbledon, and what is mental toughness?
