The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

As a result of the increasing popularity of smart mobile technology today, many Americans are generating detailed databases of their whereabouts over long periods of time that they do not see or control.  These devices are constantly documenting their movements throughout the day from their workplace to their house, by collecting what is called “cell-site location information,” or CSLI, and what most people may be unaware of is that this information can be accessed by local, state, or federal law enforcement without a warrant.  Joining us today to discuss the warrantless tracking of American citizens is Robinson Meyer an associate editor at The Atlantic, who covers technology and wrote all about the subject on  You can also follow Robinson on twitter.

Every day, millions of Americans practice yoga as both a physical and a spiritual workout, but what many of them may not know is how different their downward dog position is from the centuries of Hindu tradition in India, or how and when this practice came to the country.  In her new book The Goddess Pose: The Audacious Life of Indra Devi, the Woman Who Helped Bring Yoga to the West Michelle Goldberg details the extraordinary life Indra Devi, who was born Eugenie Peterson in Latvia in 1899 to a Russian aristocrat and a Swedish banker and who has been largely credited with popularizing yoga in US.  Michelle joins me today to talk all about the book and the amazing life of Indra Devi.  You can also follow Michelle on twitter & Check out her writing for The Nation.
