Welcome everyone to the 12th episode of Third Eye Weekly, now brought to you by AT&T. For Shark Week on BTR, we bring you two very different interviews. First, we discuss the predatory lending practices that lead to the housing market bubble burst of 2008 with Kathleen Day of the Center for Responsible Lending. With the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau standing now on its own two feet, Ms. Day makes an impassioned case for the necessity of the agency and the confidence it can bring to the fractured mortgage market.

Later, we hear more from Kevin Diamond of the Brooklyn quartet Shark?, who was the subject of our latest Q&A feature this week. On today’s show, Kevin talks more about benefit shows and New York City’s wide range of musical scenes and niches.

Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Sam Teitel. If you’d like to submit a poem for our consideration to be played/read/performed on the show, send the text of your poem in a Word document format to thirdeyeweekly at gmail dot com. Feel free to send an mp3 of your file but if you do, of course, we’ll have to take the file’s sound quality into consideration. So just be prepared to have one of us read your poem on the air (you know, if we like it) if we can’t tell what you’re saying.

So without further ado….
