Monday, October 27th – from HPR2, it’s The Conversation

Financial Expert, Peter Dunn

Peter Dunn

If you’ve got a financial strategy, feel free to tune out to this first conversation. If you’ve put it off or think you might like another take, stick around because according to Peter Dunn, financial planning can be fun. And that’s probably not one of the things your parents taught you about budgeting. But Peter Dunn, a.k.a author and radio host Pete the Planner, freely mixes comedy with the serious planning for your future. He’s in Honolulu this week and joined us in the studio.

Author Aggie Marti-Kini: “Anahola, Kauai’s Mystic Hawaiian Village”

Aggie Marti-Kini

Now on to another place with a history that goes back centuries. Anahola, Kauai, is a village of some two thousand on Kauai’s Northeast Shore. And it’s home to memories, legends, and Hawaiian chants dating back to pre-contact. Author Aggie Marti-Kini calls it “Kauai’s Mystic Hawaiian Village.” She’s that author of a book with that title, a celebration of a community the Dalai Lama once described as a birthplace of souls.

If you’re lucky, you’re going to get old, maybe even really old. And one day that may mean someone will need to help you take care of yourself. In the meantime, there’s a good chance you’ll need to help aging parents, family members, maybe friends. This past Saturday, Hawai‘i caregiving specialist, Kevin Sypniewski spoke to caregivers and those who might become caregivers. We talked before we went into the weekend and I asked him how he gets people to pay attention to real arguments and issues associated with caregiving.

11th Annual Arbor Day 1,000 Hawaiian Tree Give-Away: Tamara Sherrill

Tamara Sherrill

 We sometimes take the abundance of Hawai‘i’s plant life for granted.  Even with all the damage human contact has done in the islands, we still see evidence, all around us, of nature’s ability to regenerate itself. Maui Nui Botanical Gardens is reminding us that our natural environment needs our care and maintenance by encouraging us to plant trees. To that end, it’s giving away a thousand of them.


Intro Music: Punahele by Sonny Lim
