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 welcome back Screen Rant managing editor Ben Kendrick to the program to discuss the rise of the “second screen” experience that could be coming to a cinema near you.

Plus, BTR’s Tanya Silverman is on the phone with TV’s Chef Mike Isabella of Top Chef fame to talk about his success in the D.C. culinary scene and his own brand of “international culinary diplomacy.”

And later, Yahoo! User Experience Designer Eyal Ophir joins us to talk about a study he co-authored with Communications academia legend Clifford Nass at Stanford University that is still widely cited today in regards to humans ability to multitask in the advent of the technological age.

Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of the late Shannon Leigh (courtesy of the Urbana Slam) and Derrick Brown of Write Bloody Poetry.
