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 featuring the interviews behind the dairy-based stories you can find on the BreakThru Radio site as part of our Milk Week coverage. Up first, we’re talking about the economics of raw milk with David Grace, head of manufacturing for Skyhill Napa Valley Farms.

After the promotional air raid, mammalogist Katie Hinde tells us more about the phenomenon of inter-species nursing. And later, Professor Yanni Kotsonis of NYU explains what Russia’s recent import bans tell us about global politics.

Today’s spoken word segments come courtesy of Hollie McNish and Jive Poetic.
