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 birthdays. Here at BTR we’re celebrating our tenth anniversary, so we’re going to chat with some guests about different ways to celebrate ageing another year.

We’ll talk with Raenell Dawn, Co-Founder of the Honor Society of Leap Year Day Babies.

We’ll also chat with BTR’s very own Jess Goulart, who hosts Scotch & Cinema, Twenty-Something-Traveler, and Biology of the Blog. She’ll share an article she wrote about birthday celebrations around the world.

Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Isabel Allende, proclaimed one of the most widely-read Latin American authors who has given TED talks on how to age gracefully and gratefully.

Be sure to check out a video of our interviews with people on the streets
