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 on the phone with filmmaker Francesca Chaney whose recent short documentary submission into the 9th Annual Belize Film Festival tells the story of what its like for immigrant children to grow up in America.

Check out a trailer for Bigger Than US below:


But first, Dane Feldman and Molly Freeman, co-hosts of the Hash podcast on BTR join us to talk about transphobia in the media.
