Welcome to the Pod Squad, Civil Beat’s new weekly podcast.
Host Chad Blair talks with our reporters and local officials about the biggest stories of the week and what they mean for the people of Hawaii.
The reporters will share insights, nuggets from their notebooks and analyses to draw back the curtain on issues they cover. We’ll also be reaching out to members of the community to get their take on what’s happening.
The podcasts will be shorter than a sitcom, but long enough to keep you informed about what’s going on in the state.
Pod Squad host Chad Blair, center, talks about issues with reporters Nick Grube and Alia Wong.

What the heck is reef-safe sunscreen? Where does all the trash go? Why is it so hot? Join Civil Beat as we tackle your questions about Hawaii's environment. Smart. Irreverent. Never boring. This is not your grandma's science podcast.
