It’s Hair Week on BTR!

Kicking things off today we have a special interview with filmmakers Jason Stefaniak and Shiobhan O’Loughlin. We featured the audio from Jason and Siobhan’s recent viral video on women’s rights, “This Is My Body,” on an episode for Help Week last month.

And later, BTR’s own Molly Freeman breaks down the best hair blogs the internet has to offer.

This spoken word segments of this week’s podcast feature the talents of Sean Avery and Kayla Reid.

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 (Reunion Week!) in mind.
