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, Stephanie McDuffie Freeman of Stephanie Chasing Boston joins us to talk about the car accident that nearly left her paralyzed, and the upcoming marathon she hopes to run this April.

Plus, dietician Carrie Gabriel helps hapless, lazy slobs (like Matt) with tips start eating healthier. And later, pole dancing phenomenon Danielle Romano conveys to Third Eye the many possibilities in store for a young and progressive, yet somewhat taboo, artform.

Check out Danielle’s performance at last year’s Atlantic Pole Championships below:

Last but not least, we bring you bonus interview audio from DJ Marie’s interview Olympic track & field hopeful and Picky Bars co-founder Lauren Fleshman. You can check out the rest of their conversation on this week’s Sew & Tell podcast airing tomorrow at noon.

This week’s spoken word segments are brought to you by Andrea Gibson and Matthew Dickman.

Correction: The introduction to today’s show incorrectly addresses our guest, Carrie Gabriel, as a nutritionist. She is actually a dietician, as mentioned in the introduction to her segment.
