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, NoHomophobes.com, which tracks the use of homophobic language on Twitter.
Here are the NoHomophobes.com 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.
If you’d like to submit a poem to be featured on the air, please send us an mp3 and the text of the poem to thirdeyeweekly dot gmail dot com. Just keep sound quality and next week’s theme (Rivalry Week!) in mind.
