Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - Last night, a report that appeared in The Guardian showed that the National Security Agency, or NSA, has been collecting "metadata" on Verizon customers.  Igor Volsky of Think Progress returns to help us sort through why this has been allowed to happen.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - John Horne Burns is accredited for writing the first great gay novel, but he has seemingly been forgotten by the public.  In David Margolick's new novel, Dreadful: The Short Life and Gay Times of John Horne Burns, looks at the authors life and why he has faded from the public eye.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - "Behind The Candelabra" star Michael Douglas recently spoke publicly about his battle with throat cancer, announcing that it was not caused by smoke but by HPV.  We'll speak with Dr. Jeffrey Klausner, professor with the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, about this story and how throat cancer caused by HPV can be prevented.

It's Thursday!  We'll react to The Listener Survey!  Take it now and we may read it on the show today.
