The contentious issue of whether to expand the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument is pitting conservationists against logline fishers...and it’s also dividing those who cook what’s caught. One chef who stands behind the Fishing Means Food coalition and in opposition to the expansion is Chef NicoChaize of Nico’s Pier 38 and he’s with us this morning.

Jekyll & Hyde Poster

Robert Louis Stevenson wrote his novella “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” upon waking from a fever dream, so the story goes, and his strange tale has been troubling our dreams ever since -- maybe because it taps into a suspicion that dark forces live within us. Its haunting story has survived any number of adaptations, including a musical that’s coming to Maui next week, under the direction of David Johnston of the Maui Academy of Performing Arts.

The ancient Chinese practice of Qigong is aimed at releasing energy flow within the body, teaching us that, through relaxation, we can find strength within that has been blocked. It’s little understood in the West, but its practitioners say its ancient lessons have much to show us today. Jamie Path teaches a Qigong class on Maui, and he’s with us from there.
