"F*ck it, we'll do it live!" If you couldn't make it down to see us at Marks Garage, or if you just want to relive the glory, give this episode a listen!
After we introduce ourselves and tell you a little bit about the show (we shamelessly ripped off Desus and Mero; have we mentioned we were on KHON???), at 4:20, we chat with our new friend Izik, a Na Hoku Hanohano award-winner and up-and-coming local music superstar. We talk about his covershot for Lei Magazine, his Molokai roots and musical influences, and Mariah Carey's glorious dominance of the holiday season. His fire new album, Obsidian, is available now on iTunes -- don't miss his upcoming big show (with some very special guests) December 5 at the Hawaii Convention Center!
At 13:00, we get the audience up for a game of "mad libs," inspired by Alessandra Mussolini, granddaughter of the infamous Benito. Be sure to hit her up on Twitter @Ale_Mussolini_ and let her know how much you enjoyed this segment!
At 19:45. we jump in to our election digest, focusing on both local and national contests (2020 suicide pact, anyone?)
At 38:00, we're joined by our BFF BF -- Beth Fukumoto! She tells us about the "not chill" job of running the coordinated campaign for the Democratic Party of Hawaii, why she voted yes for a constitutional convention, and why the "pink wave" on the mainland didn't make it to Hawaii. Starting at 50:30, we open it up to the audience for an #AMA. Plus, we talk about her exciting new project (and forthcoming podcast): SOLVING EQUAL!
