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, Dr. Michael A. Smith, author of The Supplement Pyramid, joins us to talk about the growing importance of nutrients supplements, why our soil is part of the reason that our food isn’t giving us what our bodies need, and how we can begin a supplement regimen.

And later, BTR DJ Jess Goulart, host of the Scotch and Cinema podcast on BTR, talks to Perry Bard, the brains behind a crowdsourced remake of the classic 1929 documentary, Man With A Camera.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Christian Drake and Kait Rokowski.

Last but not least, here are parts 1 and 2 of The Daily Beat episodes featuring activist and poet Phoenix Nastasha Russell that we mention in the intro to today’s program.
