Welcome to Third Eye Weekly–a podcast dedicated to answering the big questions through intimate story telling. Tune in to listen to BTR hosts Zach Schepis and Lisa Autz as they weave spoken word, independent music, and unique stories that help bring our inner and external selves to full circle.
On today’s show we ask the big question: What is inspiration? What are the vessels of inspiration that allow us to overcome adversity, accomplish the seemingly impossible, and find tranquility with the world around us?
We speak to people on the streets as well as three riveting individuals about their experience with inspiration.
Tim Wayne Medvetz is a former Hell’s Angels motorcyclist, licensed scuba diver, ball room dancer and Mount Everest climber, among many other things. He discusses his empowering nonprofit called The Heroes Project, which supports injured veterans to climb the highest mountains in the world.
We also speak with NYC’s 2015 Youth Poet Laureate, Crystal Valentine about the power spoken word has to enact community engagement and drive in our youth.
Lastly, we feature our “Third Eye” interview, Tao Porchon Lynch. A 96-year-old woman who has been teaching yoga for over 45 years describes her perspective into life’s greatest motivations.
Today’s spoken word segment features our guest and the winning poem of NYC’s 2015 Youth Poet Laureate, Crystal Valentine. The Poem is entitled, “A Voter’s Armageddon.”
