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, Tanya Silverman is on the phone with architect and activist Raphael Sperry talking about ways those who design prisons can preserve human rights by refusing to put in place solitary confinement cells (among other inhumane features) in their blueprints.

And later, Jess Goulart joins us to chat about how a somewhat happy accident in medical research allows us to have a much more clear idea of the nature of human consciousness.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Shoshana Sarah and Megan Falley.
