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, author Holly George Warren talks about her new book, A Man Called Destruction: The Life and Music of Alex Chilton. She and Matt talk about Chilton’s work in the Box Tops, Big Star, and the DIY legend’s brief stint “in the wilderness” of New Orleans.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Michael Lee and Rachel Sault.
