It’s Fan Week on BTR!

On today’s Third Eye Weekly, BTR’s Jordan Reisman joins us to talk about his new Discovery Corner podcast.

And later, we talk to Graham Putnam, creator of the viral video “Luke’s Change” — a Star Wars spoof on the “truther” movement that insists destroying the Death Star was an inside job.

Spoken word segments from this week’s podcast features audio of the Supreme Court case United States v. Windsor, courtesy of the Alliance for Justice.
