Reaction to Carleton Ching Confirmation Hearing: Marti Townsend

Marti Townsend

It's not over yet, but the confirmation of Carleton Ching hit a snag yesterday when the Senate Water and Land committee voted not to approve the nominee. That was good news to the hundreds of people and many organizations who had opposed him from the beginning... including The Outdoor Circle. Executive Director Marti Townsend is one of the lead spokespersons for those organizations and she joined the show again to share more of her thoughts on the matter.

The Resilient Investor: Michael Kramer

Michael Kramer

Financial advisers have long counseled their clients to own portfolios that can absorb market highs and lows and though you might consider that to be an example of resilience, Hawaii Island financial advisor Michael Kramer has something else in mind. He's the co-author of a book, The Resilient Investor, released this week and we talked about how to package investing with social values and still get growth.
