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

4:05pm ET - Only a few days ago both the DOJ and FBI acknowledged that its forensic experts provided faulty and exaggerated testimony favoring government prosecutors for two decades by pushing the use of Microscopic hair comparison as valid evidence in trials despite the fact that in 2009, the National Academy of Science called the practice “highly unreliable”.  These revelations have created a national scandal that’s propelled the largest post-conviction review in the country’s history.  Joining us today to discuss the practice and the “science” behind it which has proved to be wrong but not before hundreds of men had been convicted or even executed is Kate Briquelet a national reporter for The Daily Beast.  You can also follow Kate on twitter.


4:35pm ET - Early last summer Investigative Journalist Alan Berlow began making contributions to the National Rifle Association to see where his money would end up. And according to his report for Yahoo News some of the money quickly found its way into the account of the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, the NRA’s political action committee despite the fact that he never knowingly contributed to the NRA-PVF.  Which according to some of the nation’s top experts on federal election law may be a big problem for the NRA because, this is illegal.  Alan joins us today to discuss the NRA’s possible illegal fund raising and political spending.

Michelangelo is LIVE today from SiriusXM's Washington D.C. Studios!

3:35pm ET - Last Thursday, Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced that his administration will file a lawsuit against the federal government for threatening to withhold more than $1 billion in funding for hospitals if the state fails to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act; and according to Jonathan Cohn, the Senior National Correspondent for The Huffington Post the political fight over healthcare in Florida is both unusual and revealing because it pits Rick Scott, against some members of his own party and lays bare the motives of the Affordable Care Act's most determined detractors.  Jonathan joins us today to talk about Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Republicans an Anti-Obamacare tantrum and why it’s bad for business in the Sunshine State.  You can also follow Jonathan on twitter.
4:35pm ET - The question of whether men are truly necessary in the biological destiny of the human race is one that has been explored by scientists and philosophers for many years, and in his new book Women After All: Sex, Evolution, and the End of Male Supremacy, Dr. Melvin Konner a Professor in the Department of Anthropology and the Program in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology at Emory University, explores this question, and sheds light on the biological and cultural differences between men and women.  Using many colorful examples from the natural world he argues that maleness in humans like many of other creatures is hardly necessary to the survival of the species. Dr. Konner joins us today to discuss the book, and how the end of male supremacy will lead to a better, wiser world for women and men alike.

Michelangelo is LIVE on the air today from SiriusXM's L.A. Studios!

3:35pm ET - Despite the fact that over the past few years the U.S. economy has rebounded from previous lows, wage growth for the entire bottom 70 percent of workers in the United States  remained flat or negative from 2003 to 2013 and according to a new report from the University of California, Berkeley, Center for Labor Research and Education these persistent low wages are costing taxpayers approximately $153 billion every year in public support to working families, including $25 billion at the state level.  Joining us today to discuss the report and its finding is Ken Jacobs the Chair of the Labor Center at UC Berkeley who co-authored the report with Ian Perry and Jenifer MacGillvary.  You can also follow Ken on twitter.


4:35pm ET - As many families in America have children that are diagnosed with ADHD, doctors are often quick to prescribe powerful stimulants such as Adderall and Ritalin. In her new book A Disease Called Childhood: Why ADHD Became an American Epidemic, Marilyn Wedge examines the ADHD epidemic, what’s causing it and how a radical, non-medicinal treatment approach may help. Marilyn suggests exploring drug-free avenues to treat ADHD, such as stricter parenting, educational reform and even exercise.  She joins me today to discuss the book, and to explain why she questions whether medicating should be the first approach to treating ADHD.  You can also follow Marilyn on twitter.

Joe Sudbay will be guest hosting tomorrow & Thursday 4/23.
