It’s Sense Week on BTR!

On today’s show, we revisit Dr. Kristopher Wells of No Homophobes dot com to discuss No Homophobe’s latest PSA, calling for an end to homophobic hate speech on television.

And later, we bring you a segment on digital accessibility in the 21st century. We’ll be reading a statement from Andrew Phillips, staff attorney at The National Association of the Deaf, that touches on legislation for digital accessibility and media myths regarding people with disabilities.

Read the transcription of our email exchange here.

Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Buddy Wakefield and Khary Jackson.

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 (Bullshit Week!) in mind.
