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 architect, urban planner, and author Alex Garvin to the show to talk more about the best and worst examples of American city planning.

And later, theoretical physicist, cosmologist and prominent voice in the modern atheism movement, Lawrence Krauss talks about a new movie called The Unbelievers detailing his travels with friend Richard Dawkins to promote free thinking, sans dogma.

This week’s spoken word segments are brought to you by Joshua Walters and George Watsky.
