Welcome to Third Eye Weekly — a podcast hosted by BreakThru Radio’s Matthew DeMello and Jennifer Smith for under-reported news, the spoken word, and radical conversation to keep you informed.

On today’s show, we’re joined by Dr. John Cianca, one of the founders and past presidents of the International Institute of Race Medicine, formerly known as the American Road Race Medical Society, as well as Medical Director of the Houston Marathon since 1998. He joins us to talk about the little known dangers of water intoxication faced by endurance athletes and marathon runners.

And after the promotional air raid, Dan Ozzi, blogger for Jaded Punk and Guest Editor for Noisey, the new music channel from VICE, joins BTR’s Jordan Reisman to discuss the age gap in the pop punk generation and the inevitable nostalgic addiction to “throwback songs” that has grown from it.

Don’t forget to check out Jordan’s own podcast, Discovery Corner on BTR.

Plus, next week is CMJ week. Remember to mark your calendars for BreakThru Radio’s very own CMJ showcase at the Grand Victory in Brooklyn on Saturday, October 29th.

Today’s spoken word segments feature the work of Khary Jackson and Shane Hawley, both courtesy of the National Poetry Slam.
