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, Zach Schepis joins us to talk about his article which you can find on the frontpage of BTR today, on the “Birdmen” of Brooklyn. These tender souls find companionship in raising flocks of birds that society has marginalized, and in their own way, keep an age old New York tradition alive.

And later, psychiatrist and geneticist Robert Cloninger is on the phone to talk about his groundbreaking research into the true nature of schizophrenia, which as it turns out may be a combination of eight different genetic disorders rather than one single nebulous mental illness.

Spoken word segments in today’s show feature the talents of Patrick Roche and Jeanann Verlee.

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