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 looking back at the height of the Occupy movement two years ago, at a time when protests swept the world supposedly under that banner. In retrospect, how the media has come to understand the nature and purpose of the movement is still flawed, along with the perceptions surrounding its transition into an alternative relief organization may represent the closest its participants could come to fulfilling their original ideals.

And after the promotional air raid, we’re looking at ways you can leave no trace after you kick the bucket. Joe Sehee, founder of the Green Burial Council, joins us to talk about the future of ecologically friendly ways to dispose of human remains.

Today’s spoken word segments feature the work of Pages Matam, courtesy of Button Poetry, as well as the spoken word group, Farewell Poetry.
