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 taking a closer look at how members of the LGBT community are depicted on TV (specifically, MTV’s Teen Wolf) with BTR’s own Molly Freeman.

After the promotional air raid, we’re featuring previously unaired interview audio from past Third Eye guests. Tune in to hear more about Occupy Sandy efforts on Staten Island with last week’s guest, Goldi Guerra. And later, we feature more of Tanya Silverman’s interview with Sasha Abramsky, author of The American Way of Poverty.

Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Omar Holmon and Shappy Seasholtz. The latter of which comes courtesy of the Urbana Poetry Slam.

And as always, don’t forget to check out our Tumblr and Twitter accounts.
