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 $76,000 towards our $200,000 goal!
Jose Fajardo joins Pod Squad host Chad Blair to talk about the future of public radio in the islands.
Fajardo was named president and general manager of Hawaii Public Radio earlier this year. The Puerto Rico native noted that about 196,000 people listen to HPR’s two news and music stations (find them in Honolulu at 88.1 and 89.3 on the dial), but only about 12,000 support the station financially.
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.
