Welcome to Third Eye Weekly — a podcast hosted by BTR’s Matthew DeMello and Jennifer Smith for underreported news, the spoken word, and radical conversation to keep you informed.

On today’s show, Richard Walker of the Blue Brain Project talks about the attempt to build a human brain inside a supercomputer (someday). And later, BTR’s Tanya Silverman is on the phone with Adi Kamdar of the Electronic Frontier Foundation talking about their Blue Ribbon Campaign to award websites that honor values of free speech and human rights.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Patricia Smith and Reneltta Arluk.
