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 celebrating a time-honored American tradition … of going straight to the movies after you’ve recovered from your turkey-induced, Thanksgiving food coma. Up first, resident Superman kid and co-host of BTR’s movie podcast Restricted Audience Required, DJ Dillon joins resident Batman kid and Third Eye co-host Matthew DeMello to talk about the upcoming Superman vs. Batman movie rumors.

And later, how are Nielsen’s new Twitter ratings affecting how advertisers look at your favorite shows? BTR’s Molly Freeman joins us to talk more about her story now available on the BTR front page.

You can find more music by Virginia Reed, our latest featured #TuneUp artist mentioned in today’s promotional air raid, on last week’s episode of In the Den. Today’s spoken word segments come courtesy of Marshall Davis Jones, Jon Sands, Adam Falkner, and Jeanann Verlee.

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