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, Ariella Furman of Wing Ma’am talks about the difference between a dating site and a niche social network, and how users can use her app to engage in activism. And later, filmmaker Teneisha Berg is on the program to share with us the inspiring story of both her new documentary, The Tenor From Abidjan (whose Kickstarter just passed its goal), and its subject, a talented young man from West Africa with the voice of an opera singer.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Andrea Gibson and Geoff Kagan Trenchard.
