It’s First Time Week on BTR!
Featured guests on today’s episode of Third Eye Weekly include Keith Humphreys, a professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. Prof. Humphreys recently spent a year as Senior Policy Advisor at the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. He joins us today to talk about changes in U.S. drug policy that seek rehabilitation, rather than incarceration, for nonviolent drug offenders.
And later, we head to WIRED Magazine‘s 8th Annual WIRED Store in New York City. There we speak to Lara Lavi, Managing Partner at Z!NG Revolution, a company that creates vinyl skins to help you personalize your stuff. We ask Lara Lavi about the power of personal branding and how personalized merch can help independent musicians.
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 (Winter Week!) in mind.
