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, Sara Coughlin chats about Germany’s “stone age” approach to problems posed by NSA surveillance, and Brian Fencil pulls apart ageism in the tech industry.

And later, co-host of The Hash podcast on BTR, Molly Freeman joins us to talk about Sharknado 2: The Second One and what to make of it. Plus, we feature interview audio from BTR’s Q&A column, Tune Up, featuring John Ringhofer—the brains behind indie christian orchestral act, Half-Handed Cloud.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Stephen James Smith and Rafeef Siadah.
