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, Charlie Smith of Great Fire joins us to talk about his organization’s efforts in exposing censorship in China both from government authorities and complicit corporate media interests

And later, Cora Currier of The Intercept is on the phone to discuss her recent stories for the independent media outlet, including her latest on secret manuals sold to governments across the world to help undermine the last line of defense for your online privacy.

For further reference, we’ll be discussing the recent Lena Dunham “sexual abuse” scandal (the passage of her book, Not That Kind of Girl, on the subject can be found here) that plagued headlines over the weekend, as well as another of Cora’s stories for The Intercept on the complicity of the American Psychiatric Association with CIA torture during the American occupation of Iraq.

The spoken word segments of today’s show feature the talents of Jared Paul and Scott Woods.

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