Enjoying the new Season

My Mom (from Nanakuli) joined the navy and settled in NC where she and my Dad (a Black man) raised my sisters and I. I felt and connected to this season because I question what it means to be Hawaiian when you’re not raised on the islands nor look Hawaiian. I now live in CA now, and have visited the ancestral lands of the Miwak in present Day Santa Rosa. So fascinating to hear about the history of Native Hawaiians in these areas! Thank you for this season. Looking forward to new episodes.

Hawaiian in Houston

I loved the Maunakea season and grew up partially in Marshall Islands so that season hit my heart. Living on mainland most of my life with a dad from the lost generation, I’m so excited to hear this season about Hawaiian diaspora. Thank you for recognizing us who long for home but for so many reasons cannot return to live there.

Hawaiidaho

I moved from Oahu to Idaho. I love listening to the civil beat crew and hearing very well articulated and interesting stories of my home.

Thoughtful reporting

A really interesting, thoughtful, empathetic and thorough podcast. I’ve learned a lot listening, and especially appreciate that the podcast provides a platform to elevate and spotlight the voices and interests of Hawaiians themselves.

False advertising, racism apologist

I downloaded this podcast wanting to learn more about the complexity of crime and culture in Hawaii. If you are interested in a discussion such as that, go somewhere else. While the host states that she does not want to take sides on the issues and instead provide a platform for discussion, her bias is so strong that she does not provide discussion.In her initial series of episode she addresses the widespread racism that is present on our island but dismisses it as something to be expected of native Hawaiians because of our treatment during colonial times. Institutionalized racism should not be excused no matter where it occurs or who it is directed against. Blaming a race for racism directed at them only further legitimizes prejudice. It saddens me that this podcast is going to be the first look at island society for many people around the world.

Compelling and informative!

Just finished season 3 of Offshore and it might be my favorite one yet. Diving deep into cultural and political tensions and highlighting the lives and stories of Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders is something the Offshore team continues to do expertly. Thank you for your dedication to this journalism and these important stories! It always makes me want to understand even more about the people and places.

Phenomenal!

This podcast gives a great look into a side of Hawaii that most of us never get to see, and draws a lot of good attention to major contemporary issues in America such as racial justice and the rights of indigenous people. It's very thought provoking, and presents all sides in a fair and neutral light. Definitely worth a listen!

Trailing Voice

Good stories and reporting, but difficult for me to listen to podcasts. After the first two, I found the trailing voice, elongating the last word of each sentence, to be extremely irritating, so stopped listening. Tried again but still the same. It is just me.

Check your pronunciation

Please learn how to say HONOLULU... it is not Hanalulu, it is HONOLULU. Yes you are Malahini, but it is not okay to come here as a broadcaster and not bother to learn how to say Hawaiian words corrected.

Journalism at its best

Offshore gives its stories the depth they deserve. I love the long-form format and Jessica clearly cares about the subject she’s reporting on. The first two series gave a full perspective of the depth and richness of Hawai’ian culture and history. And The Blood Calls was equal parts informative and personal. Looking forward to more. Keep it up!
