You may know Larry Wilmore from his role as the Senior Black Correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, and if you do, you’re probably familiar with his insightful satire that lays bare America’s difficult dealings with race. Wilmore was in Salt Lake City recently, and he put together a television program that examined—with equal parts intelligence and humor—race, religion and sex in the Beehive State. Tuesday, Wilmore will talk with Doug about his “passionate centrist” point of view, and why race, religion and sex are vital in choosing America’s next leader.

Showtime is airing Larry Wilmore's Race, Religion and Sex on Wednesday, August 29. Check your local listings for details.
