Hawaii's SelectedShorts

Since we moved from the Islands we've missed this wonderful program from Hawaii Public Radio -- it was too hard for us to stay awake (midnight here) to catch the live streaming version from the station.

This podcast features short stories written by local authors and read by local performers before a live studio audience, and captures the heart and charm, as well as the gritty realities, of the Islands by the folks who know and love them best. Mahalo nui loa for bringing this program to a wider audience. Hope that earlier readings will be made available in the future, too.
