The Conversation

Weekdays 8:00-9:00 am

Whether you live in our state or far from our shores, you’ll know what’s happening in Hawaii with a daily hour of live talk about public affairs, ideas, culture and the arts. Guests from in and outside of Hawaii with a perspective on the islands and cohosts Beth-Ann Kozlovich and Chris Vandercook sit down weekday mornings at 8 HST on HPR-2, streamed live and archived on hpr2.org. Every day brings a Reality Check with CivilBeat.com,  a cross-section of international news from sources including NPR, the BBC World Service and Deutsche Welle, and a Backyard Quiz so you can test your knowledge of Hawaii’s history, geography, myth, music and more. Often you’ll hear mini-musical performances by local and visiting artists, some composed right on the spot. There’s never just one definitive discussion and there are always ongoing layers to The Conversation.  

The show made its debut on Monday, February 14, 2011 and Talk Show Executive Producer Beth-Ann Kozlovich says “the whole point is to get away from Oahu-centric stories and talk about our state as one state with many faces, facets and interests.”

Have something to say? Send a comment, conversation suggestion or a Backyard Quiz to talkback@hawaiipublicradio.org.

Lillian Tsang is the producer and Taylor Rice is the Production Assistant.
