Today on the Signorile Show

3:30pm ET - A question that is been flying under the radar is that of what is happening to the bee population?  Studies have been conducted over the past few years, looking into why numbers colonies are dwindling or even dying off, and experts are pointing to insecticides as the cause for CCD, or Colony Collapse Disorder.  Tom Philpott, Food and Agricultural Correspondent with Mother Jones, returns to the show today to explain The Mystery of Bee Colony Collapse.

4:30pm ET - We've been speaking about the boycotts against Russia all week, speaking yesterday with Val Mendeleev, Stoli CEO, about his reactions to those calling to "Dump Stoli."  We continue our conversation today with actor and playwright Harvey Fierstein, who is one of the leading voices calling for a boycott of Russia over their harsh anti-gay laws as we get closer to the 2014 Olympics.
