Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

American adolescents watch much more pornography than their parents know — and it’s shaping their ideas about pleasure, power and intimacy. With America’s inadequate sex-ed curriculums and many teens using porn as a how-to guide for sex, critical conversations about porn are needed. Contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine Maggie Jones wrote “What Teenagers are Learning from Online Porn.” She joins me on the show today to talk about what her conversations with teens, educators, researchers and activists revealed.

This sure has been another crazy week in politics what with the horrific school shooting in Florida, 13 Russian indicted for US election interference, immigration policy battles in the Senate.  Joining me today to help us wrap up the week in politics is EleanorClift the Washington correspondent for TheDaily Beast, where she covers the White House and writes about politics and culture.  Eleanor welcome back to the show!

Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127



The government has shut down twice in the past month, with immigration policies at the forefront of the conflict at Capitol Hill. Trump continues trying to advance his anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies from the State of the Union to the administration’s policy framework. But, these staunchly anti-immigrant positions could be undermining the GOP. Political scientist Matt Barreto argues that Democrats should position themselves as thepro-immigrant party not only because it is morally just, but also because it is a proven way to win. He joins me on the show today.

Since we last spoke with John Nichols of The Nation a lot has happened—a brief government shutdown, a domestic abuser resigning from the White House and Trump’s support for him.  John returns to the show today to talk all about these issues and whole lot more, John is The Nation’s national-affairs correspondent, a contributing writer for The Progressive and In These Times and the associate editor of The Capital Times, the daily newspaper in Madison, Wisconsin.

He joins me on the show today to discuss the realities behind Trump’s mythology.
