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, New York-based interior stylist Hilary Robertson chats about the appeal of “shelfies,” or rather a new trend on social media where users take pictures of their shelves. Plus we’re featuring exclusive audio from Tanya Silverman’s interview with photography historian Brenton Hamilton, and you can find that feature story on BTR coming this weekend.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Javon Johnson and Karen Finneyfrock.

As always, don’t forget to check out our Tumblr and Twitter accounts, for the latest in independent media and underreported news.
