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 honored to have best selling author and renowned thinker Malcolm Gladwell on the podcast. He’s here to talk about his new book, which shares a title this week’s theme on BreakThru Radio, David & Goliath, about what we fail to realize about both the nature of underdogs and overlords.

This week’s spoken word segments are again brought to you by Jared Paul. The Prayers For Atheists frontman has a new spoken word album out now, Jared Paul Live, that we’ve found perfectly fitting with this week’s and last week’s theme.

As always, don’t forget to check out our Tumblr and Twitter accounts, for the latest in independent media and under-reported news.
