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, Greg Satell is a contributor to Forbes magazine and has spent the bulk of his career building mass media businesses in Eastern Europe after the Cold War. He’s on the phone with Third Eye to talk about how subscription models are working in old media and new.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Aaron Samuels and Dylan Garity, the latter courtesy of Button Poetry.
