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, BTR staff writer and co-host of the Scotch & Cinema podcast, Jess Goulart, joins us to discuss how video game movies may someday become the new comic book movies, as far as Hollywood blockbusters go.

And later, freelance journalist and spoken word artist Jennifer Leigh Oprihory joins us to discuss a slew of foreign policy issues, her recent story for the Medill National Security Journalism Initiative on the US military’s role in international disaster relief, and read us some poems!

Hence, this week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Jennifer Leigh Oprihory.
