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 Aaron Romano, attorney for the transgender teen in Connecticut, named “Jane Doe,” who has been juggled between abusive foster parents and both male and female prisons. We talk about what’s next for Jane and the responsibility that states owe to the trans community to provide proper social services for the young and disenfranchised.

But first, Brian Fencil talks about the new meaning of “Kodak moment,” given the company’s fall from grace during the digital photography revolution, and how they should have seen it coming.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Britteney Conner and William Evans.
