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 celebrating the legacy of Surf Rock. Join Tanya Silverman as she speaks with George Tomsco of the Fireballs about the influences on the legendary ‘50s group.

And later, we feature exclusive audio from Jess Goulart’s interview with documentarian Sarah Blecher, whose 2010 film Surfing Soweto shed light on the hottest trend among African daredevil teens–”train surfing”.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Lyndsey Redding and Alysia Harris.
