Welcome to Third Eye Weekly–a podcast dedicated to answering the big questions through intimate story telling. Tune in and 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.

Today’s podcast is about outliers. What is an outlier you might ask? An outsider? Someone who lives on the fringes of society, who challenges our conventional norms?

They’re all great questions, and they lead us to our big question of the week: Is it really possible to exist as an outlier in today’s society, and what does it mean to be identified as one?

We’ll talk with the New York Time’s best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell about his influential 2008 book Outliers, which explains how the most successful people achieved the rare feats and roles that they occupy in both our society and imaginations.

We’ll also chat with Canadian long-distance runner and motivational speaker Ray Zahab. Ray has ran across the Sahara Desert and the South Pole among other beautifully treacherous terrains, and has founded the organization impossible2Possible that helps the youth attain these seemingly impossible educational adventures.

Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with someone who, quite literally, has a third eye. His name is Neil Harbisson, and he is the first human cyborg. He has an antennae installed in his skull that allows him to hear colors.

As well as speaking to the public at Union Square in NYC.

This podcast will feature a spoken word poem by Thadra Sheridan’s “Drunk”

Also, feel free to check out our video with Malcolm Gladwell as we discuss his book Outliers and learn about how Australians are the best pilots, Gladwell’s 10 year career at the Washington Post, and how we can all spend a little more time asking how we can create a society where people better fulfill their potential.
