Welcome to Third Eye Weekly. On this podcast we try and answer the big questions with intimate, personal narratives that give insight into the human experience that others might over-look.

Today’s podcast is about being unprepared. Our big question is: When in your life have you felt least prepared to do something? What could you have done to better prepare, and what are ways to do so moving forward?

First, we took it to the streets to ask people when they felt least prepared.

We talk with Dr. Michael Smith, author of the Supplemental Pyramid, about how we can prepare ourselves to lead more nutritious lives.

We’ll also chat with Lee Rainie, director of internet, science, and technology research at the PEW Research Center. He’ll share some of his findings into our society’s new role as an online network, and a number of the ways we can prepare to maximize the benefits of that role.

Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Favio Chavez, a musician and teacher who has created the Recycled Orchestra, which magically transforms the devastating garbage of one of the poorest slums in Cateura, Paraguay into musical instruments the children can play.

They sound unexpectedly beautiful. Translating for Favio is Brad Allgood, director of a film that chronicles Favio’s noble and musical journey. The film is called the Landfill Harmonic, and just premiered at SXSW Festival.

You can also check out a video of our interview with Dr. Michael Smith, on our unprepared expectations for the lack of nutrition healthy food in America provide and supplements to correct those imbalances.
