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, Tanya Silverman talks about the mysterious hometown of Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling. And later, Jess Goulart gives us more details on her story of a strangely devoted collection of employees at Rapid Realty who have volunteered to get tattoos of the company logo on their bodies. Is this how far working class Americans need to go to get a raise in this economy? Or is a close-knit workplace one of the best ways to feel like you belong–and show it.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Brian S. Ellis and Denise Jolly.
