Welcome to Third Eye Weekly — a podcast hosted by BTR’s Matthew DeMello and Jennifer Smith for underreported news, the spoken word, and radical conversation to keep you informed.

On today’s show, BTR’s own Zach Schepis talks to us in-depth about two stories of his available on the site this week. The first is digging deep into the inside world of BitCoin and alternative currencies (check out parts 1 and 2 here, respectively), which are both live now on BreakThru Radio today.

The second, which will be premiering over the weekend, is taking a closer look at a new lie detector–er, “threat detector”–bot being developed by US Customs for the Mexican border.

This week’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Damon Garcia and Lauren Whitehead.

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