Thank you for this wonderful little gem. I’m far away from home, but this keeps me informed. Mahalo, and I went to Kahuku, Kalaheo, and finally graduated from McKinley😎
I’m enjoying the variety of the podcasts…there seems to be no discernible theme…I like that, it exposes me to new ideas. I’m a Kamehameha Grad, Class of 1960…your mom, Phyllis is my dear classmate, please give her my regards! Eloise Choy-Hee Thompson
This is a very good podcast. I am not Hawaiian. But I am interested in other cultures. I really enjoy the paranormal side of Hawaii. That’s how I found this podcast. I was searching for the night marchers and found this podcast. I liked it so much I just kept listening. I would love if you did more of the paranormal side of Hawaii and the lore. It’s very interesting. Don’t make the mistake of passing this podcast by if you are not Hawaiian. It’s very well done. Also IF you can maybe explain more about the Hawaiian terms and such for us that are not Hawaiian. If not it’s ok. But thank you very informative
