Six-week series airing 10/4 – 11/8 from 8 am to 10 am ET on SiriusXM Progress.

Food for Thought with Touré will start each weekend with a fresh take on the week’s events. Touré and his guests will have in-depth, thoughtful discussions on the issues that don’t have easy answers.  Describing his program as “an elegant brunch” with an assortment of the most interesting, intelligent, thought-provoking thinkers, experts and journalists of the day, Touré plans to tackle issues ranging from difficult decisions regarding ISIS or changing the way we look at the behavior of professional sports teams.  The first week’s guests on Saturday 10/4 will include San Francisco Attorney General Kamala Harris, Bloomberg View sports writer Kavitha Davidson and fellow MSNBC “Cyclist” Krystal Ball.

Guests scheduled to appear in future installments of “Food for Thought  with Touré” include: Questlove, drummer, producer, culinary entrepreneur, New York Times best-selling author, and member of The Roots and LL Cool J, musician, entrepreneur and actor.

Over his diverse career, Touré has interviewed culturally relevant authors, musicians and politicians and has placed a spotlight on what he feels are critical stories not being told. His fresh voice on the media landscape has afforded him opportunities beyond the Beltway, with creatives and pop culture icons reflecting on their own personal journeys. “Touré brings an unmistakable passion and strong intellectual curiosity to a broad range of today’s important subjects,” said Dave Gorab, Vice President and General Manager, Talk Programming, SiriusXM, “We’re excited for Sirius XM listeners to jump-start their weekends with the smart, stimulating conversation Touré will deliver.”
