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 talking about stopping rape culture on college campuses across America, featuring a round-table with Dane Feldman and Molly Freeman of the Hash on BTR.

And later, Marguerite Ward of the World Policy Journal and Policy Mic, joins us to talk about recent articles she’s written about solving homelessness in Europe and the internet’s awe at how much we have in common with everyday Iranians.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner and Laura Lisete Roosar.
