It’s Free Week on BTR!
First, Jen sits down with Paul Stein of The Occuponics, a musical outfit founded “in the energy, experience, and values of the Occupy Wall Street movement,” according to its website.
As we near the anniversary of Occupy Wall Street on Sept. 17, we wondered about the liberating aspect of music and how a good tune can contribute to the spirit of the times or the makings of a movement.
And later, Matt speaks with Arian Croft, lead designer of Ill Gotten Games, a company that recently made headlines in the tech world for developing a tabletop strategy game where users can design their own pieces using open source coding and 3-D printers.
If you’d like to submit a poem to be played on the show, feel free to send an MP3 to thirdeyeweekly at gmail dot com, but do keep sound quality in mind!
