Coming up on Forum:
Cancer afflicts 1.7 million Americans each year and kills 600,000 of them. A new PBS documentary, "Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies," explores the history of the disease and the ongoing attempts to treat it. We'll speak with the director of the film and with researchers at the frontier of new treatments.
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont is the longest-serving independent in American congressional history. He's made a name for himself by criticizing corporate excess and pushing for more transparency in campaign finances - he once delivered a filibuster against the extension of Bush-era tax cuts for more than eight hours. He joins us to talk about economic justice, his boycott of the recent Netanyahu speech and his thoughts about running for president in 2016.
