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, Molly Freeman chats about the origins of binge watching and later, Providence, RI-based music writer and columnist Rob Duguay chats about the merits of binge listening to end the age old Stones-vs-Beatles debate.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Dominique Christina and Sarah Kay.
