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, we’re talking to Zach Schepis about an illegal bicycle racing collective in NYC called the Alley Cats, and BTR’s new lifestyle columnist Chloe Kent explains why she’s a terrible sleeping partner.

And later, we bring you Jess Goulart’s interview with Nicole Donardio, the brains behind a viral parody video of The Wolf of Wall Street, titled “The Women of Wall Street”, taking on gender inequality in the financial sector.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of J.G. and Neil Hilborn.
