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 vacations. Despite our increasingly swamped and hectic work lives, bustling social circles, and over-committed lifestyles, in what ways can we take a break from the daily grind and lose ourselves to new adventures?

We’ll talk with Amanda Machado, who back-packed for fifteen months straight through South America, Southern Asia, Western Europe, and the United States. She’s a writer who has written extensively about traveling for publications such as The Atlantic and NPR, and also works for an organization called Global Glimpse which seeks to bring disadvantaged students on educational trips through Nicaragua.

We’ll also chat with Sreekant Cherukuri, an ear, nose, and throat specialist from Munster, Indiana who will share with us some of the hazards that noisy vacations–such as concerts, festivals, and isolated ear-bud use–can have on our hearing.

Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Michael Woods. He’s the founder of Framestore’s Digital Department and Virtual Reality Studio. He’s made some incredible advancements in the field of virtual reality, and is going to share with us how a new invention called “the Teleporter” might come to change the way we think about travel.

Be sure to check us out as we take our questions for VACATION Week to the streets!

You can also check out a video of our interview with BTR Staff Writer, Veronica Chavez, for a millennial perspective on travel and vacationing.
