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 with the editor of SciArt in America, a bimonthly publication dedicated to science-based art.

Plus, we chat with Stephen Savage, acclaimed illustrator and head of the Save Kentile committee, working to preserve the Kentile Floors sign in Gowanus, Booklyn. Stephen talks about his new movement, reacting to breaking news, and the public meaning of privately owned derelict.

And later, we bring you a brief conversation with award-winning, New York Times best selling author and activist, Captain Luis Carlos Montalvan. Capt. Luis and his service dog, Tuesday, stop by our studios to share their experiences in helping manage PTSD as well as his personal experiences dealing with the Department of Veterans Affairs.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Natalie Illum and Ian Khadan.

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