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 chatting with Brian Fencil about a housing auction in Detroit to help save their city budget (also their housing problems); and later, Zach Schepis joins us to talk about a controversial law in California that backfires on affordable housing.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Derrick Brown and Amaris Diaz.

As always, don’t forget to check out our Tumblr and Twitter accounts, for the latest in independent media and underreported news.

Also, here’s the op-ed from The Washington Post that Matt and Jen refer to in the intro of today’s show, plus Monday’s episode of The Daily Beat on BTR.
