Mayor de Blasio plays a ‘Robin Hood’ of sorts with a plan to tax the city’s wealthiest to pay for our broken subway system. We’ll have the details of his plan. Marilu Henner, best known for starring on the hit sitcom ‘Taxi,’ joins us with her husband Michael Brown to discuss how they beat Brown’s bladder and lung cancer.  Together, they tell the story in Henner’s latest book “Changing Normal: How I Helped My Husband Beat Cancer.” The documentary, Koko: The Gorilla Who Talks, explores this remarkable animal’s life and the controversy surrounding her.  Tonight, we take a look at the film and sit down with the documentary’s producer to go inside Koko’s story.
