Welcome to Third Eye Weekly–a podcast hosted by BTR’s Zach Schepis and Jennifer Smith for underreported news, the spoken word, and radical conversation to keep you informed.

On today’s show, percussionist William Ruiz joins us to talk rhythm. Ruiz is a native Taino who plays an unusual instrument called the 12-tongue log drum. He performs for pow-wows, alongside acclaimed jazz musicians, and in the New York City subways.

And later, author Jolie Kerr is on the phone to talk about her newest book My Boyfriend Barfed In My Handbag, and Other Things You Can’t Ask Martha.

Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Dave Lordan and Geoff Trenchard.
