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, political scientist, author, and professor emeritus with Boston University, Andrew J Bacevich joins us to discuss his recent op-ed for Reuters on President Obama’s announcement on air strikes against the ISIS.

And later, researcher for the Remote Control Project, Crofton Black discusses his work datamining documents from the Department of Defense on the corporate interests involved in the US Special Operations Command.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Joshua Merchant and Jack McCarthy.
