Aloha from Ron Mizutani, President and CEO…


Tues., January 11 at 7:30 pm
On this PBS Hawaiʻi special presentation, HIKI NŌ goes behind the scenes of an unforgettable Student Reflection to explore the cathartic power of storytelling.
Akeakamai Cho, a student at Kua O Ka Lā Miloliʻi Hipuʻu Virtual Academy in South Kona, was invited to the PBS Hawaiʻi studio to recount how crafting a visual story helped her process and even heal feelings of pressure, anxiety and depression, as her family expanded with the addition of two foster infants just as both of her parents lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI (Thurs., Jan. 13, 7:30 pm) returns from hiatus with a preview of the 2022 legislative session – the third under the shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Join the discussion with lawmakers from both sides of the aisle by phoning in a question during the program or leaving us a comment on our Facebook livestream. INSIGHTS also streams live on
A hundred-foot tall formation of eucalyptus trees welcomes drivers to the south shore of Kauaʻi. It’s a beautiful drive during the day, but at night… it’s a different story. This Wednesday, master storyteller Lopaka Kapanui returns to the WHAT SCHOOL YOU WENT? podcast to talk about the Kauaʻi Tree Tunnel.
Listen on or anywhere you get your podcasts, including Apple and Spotify.
Return to the Yorkshire Dales for the much-anticipated season 2 premiere of ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL (Sun., Jan. 9, 8:00 pm). The series follows the adventures of James Herriot, a young veterinarian from Scotland who moves to Yorkshire to take a job in a farming town in the 1930s.
Every four years, the world’s most talented violinists converge in Indiana to compete in what is referred to as the Olympics of the Violin. THANK YOU FOR THE CHALLENGE: THE 10TH QUADRENNIAL INTERNATIONAL VIOLIN COMPETITION OF INDIANAPOLIS (Sat., Jan. 15, 8:00 pm) gives you a front row seat as each competitor attempts a performance of a lifetime.

Final thought… growing up in Hawaiʻi, many of us heard stories of haunted roads and streets that we should NEVER drive on at night! Our elders instructed us to heed the warnings and respect the lore. Of course, all that did was prompt us to do the opposite. That inability to resist an urge and ignore a warning is something many of us cannot control. How many of you have touched a freshly painted surface, even after reading a “Wet Paint” sign? It is safe to say, we’ve all been afflicted by the psychological ailment, the Wet Paint Syndrome. The Wet Paint Syndrome applies to other warning signs:

·       Caution, Contents May Be Hot

·       Danger High Voltage

·       Do Not Enter, Restricted Area

·       No Smoking

·       Caution, Slippery Rocks


Unfortunately, as you’ll hear in the next “What School You Went?” audio podcast, there is no cure for the Wet Paint Syndrome.
You’ve been warned…
Mahalo nui,
