  1. So very interesting! I’m making my husband listen to this immediately (after having paraphrased the whole episode to him because I couldn’t wait). His family is from Hawaii, of native Hawaiian and other heritage. So that on top of us having just moved to NZ from the states makes the podcast and this episode in particular extremely interesting. Thank you for the good work!
