How many podcasts exist by and/or for Palauans? Like... Three? Well here's one of them! This is the personal podcast of Sha Merirei. She's a QTPI millennial in Honolulu ranting in front of her mic to the smooth sounds of royalty-free reggae. This podcast probably contains mild to moderate swearing. #SorryNotSorry

    Sit-Down Sesh with Surangel Whipps Jr

    Sit-Down Sesh with Surangel Whipps Jr

    Back in 2016, I was fortunate enough to have a chat with then-presidential candidate Surangel Whipps Jr in Portland, Oregon about his run. Fast forward to 2020... Surangel Whipps Jr hasn't issued an official declaration, but he is running, and he did make time for a sit-down sesh to answer some crowdsourced questions before his meeting with the Palauan community on Oahu for this first Sha Nanigans podcast of the year.

    Coffee Time Convo with Senator Uduch

    Coffee Time Convo with Senator Uduch

    Just recently, Senator Uduch Sengebau Senior of the 10th Olbiil er a Kelulau passed through Honolulu on her way back to Palau and she made time on a Saturday morning to give us an update on where she’d been and discuss some pretty difficult issues that we’re both very passionate about— from the importance of voting and electing women into political positions to domestic violence and sexual abuse in Palau.

    In Solidarity, Always: a Mini-Episode

    In Solidarity, Always: a Mini-Episode

    As images of kūpuna being arrested for protecting Mauna Kea have been displayed all over the world, I’ve watched how those images have affected people differently and spent a good bit of time reflecting. I wanted to share some of my own thoughts and feelings because what I saw and how I feel about the Protectors of Mauna Kea are very much shaped by the history of the greater Micronesian region (particularly Palau) and how it played a major role in my formative years. That same history has impacted my work as an adult and connects #BeingMicronesian with Indigenous struggles going on throughout the world today.

    Halfway Through 2019 and I Finally Podcast...

    Halfway Through 2019 and I Finally Podcast...

    This year has been a wild ride and we’re only a little more than halfway through it, but I finally podcasted!  Tune in as I cover a fairly wide range, not necessarily in-depth, because I just haven’t been on top of my podcasting game this year. Updates on #BeingMicronesian, touching on #ProtectMaunaKea, discussing some social media things, and (of course) mental health things.

    Coffee Time Convo with Our Senators

    Coffee Time Convo with Our Senators

    I sat down outside a coffee shop in Honolulu on March 23, 2019 for a casual conversation with Senators Uduch Senior and Rukebai Inabo. We discussed the work they’re doing inside and outside OEK, the rights and resources available for abuse and assault victims in Palau, the housing market, and got updates on their airport lawsuit.

    [2019] Mini-Episode on Yoga & Blechidelry™

    [2019] Mini-Episode on Yoga & Blechidelry™

     

    I had an entirely different episode to publish as my introductory 2019 episode. Really, I did. But every time I think I’m done recording, I open the Facebook app and there’s a whole new instance of Blechidelry™ that completely throws me… So consider this a mini episode because I’m literally just addressing yoga. Well yoga and the collective Blechidelry™ that’s become ever-so-pervasive in Palauan society. 

    [Disclaimer: For years, plenty of you have pointed out that I am a veritable "Ngalek er a Ngebard," that ak "meses chemadech," or that I'm not a "real Palauan." That said, you can't be mad at me for speaking up, because I don't count. Right?]
