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, Pamela Rutledge helps us dig deep beneath headlines about why technology is almost always bad for our fragile millennial psyches. But first, BTR’s own Brian Fencil joins us to talk about how radical violent groups are fighting the war on terror using social media.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Kevin Yang and Taylor Mali.
