Welcome to Third Eye Weekly — a podcast hosted by BTR’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 speaking to two BTR writers, Tanya Silverman and Marguerite Ward, about their stories on the site this week. The first, by Marguerite, takes a closer look at advocates who say creationism should be part of science education in Texas, but global warming should not.

After the promotional air raid, Tanya tells us more about her experience in the Demilitarized Zone of the Korean peninsula, as new research suggests wildlife in the region could be significantly more developed than scientists have previously thought.

Plus, it’s CMJ week! BreakThru Radio’s very own CMJ showcase is taking place at the Grand Victory in Brooklyn on Saturday, October 29th. Today’s spoken word segments feature the work of IBe Kaba of Button Poetry and Rachelle Street. And as always, don’t forget to check out our Tumblr and Twitter accounts.
