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!

Business reporter Stewart Yerton and education reporter Suevon Lee join the Pod Squad to discuss their new roles at Civil Beat.
Both reminisced about the most memorable stories they ever worked on during their journalism career. For Suevon, that was a 2007 profile of controversial Washington, D.C. school chancellor and ed reformer Michelle Rhee. Stewart recalled an out-of-the-box investigative series he produced for the New Orleans Times-Picayune about the commercial trade in human cadavers.
