We’ve been producing journalism in the public interest for 10 years, with the aim of making Hawaii a better place, and we have no plans to stop any time soon. But we need your help to keep this critical work going strong. For a limited time, donations to Civil Beat will be doubled, thanks to a matching gift from the NewsMatch program!
Civil Beat has raised $32,000 towards our $200,000 goal!
Civil Beat is teaming up with PRX, a national developer and distributer of audio programming, to create a new Hawaii-centered program expected to launch in the fall.
Ben Adair, a nationally known podcaster and producer from Los Angeles whose work includes the ongoing series, “First Time Last Time,” has signed on to be executive producer of the show. He was in Honolulu recently so we took advantage of his visit to talk with Pod Squad host Chad Blair about the project.
Also joining the discussion: Civil Beat Editor Patti Epler and reporter Jessica Terrell.

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.
