It’s Knockoff Week on BTR!

Featured guests on today’s episode of Third Eye Weekly include Dr. Kristopher Wells, researcher at the Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services, University of Alberta. Matt sits down with Dr. Wells to talk about his project,, which tracks the use of homophobic language on Twitter.

Here are the slur stats as of Wednesday, November 21.

And later, managing editor Margaret Jacobi chats up Lisa Irion, a Cher impersonator. Irion has been filmed as Cher by Lifetime TV, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and The Rachel Ray Show! Check out Margaret’s article on Lisa Irion for more.

Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Brian Eno and Rick Holland.
