Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - Noah Michelson, Editor with Huffington Posts Gay Voices, returns to the show today to help us close out the week in LGBT headlines.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Yesterday, we spoke on the show about the report from The Guardian that exposed the NSA keeping "metadata" on customers of Verizon, ordered to give the government info about the calls made, where they were made and the amount of time the call lasted.  After the show, more news broke that companies like AT&T and Sprint are also involved, as well as tech companies like Google, Apple, and Skype.  Michelle Richardson, Legislative Counsel with The American Civil Liberties Union, joins us today to talk about why metadata is more than a 'modest encroachment' on privacy.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Jon Mooallem, author of Wild Ones: A Sometimes Dismaying  Weirdly Reassuring Story About Looking at People Looking at Animals in America, looking into the history and future of the conservation movement of animals like the polar bear and whooping crane and joins us today to talk about the work people are doing to try and prevent these animals from going extinct.

It's Friday!  Who will get the "Angel, Turkey, & Gassy of the Week" Awards!?!
