Justyn AhChong: An independent filmmaker in the Pacific | 2.7

My guest for Brine S2.E7 is Justyn Ah Chong––an independent filmmaker, and Native Hawaiian, who was born and raised on the island of Oʻahu. He seeks to tell culturally rooted stories that amplify the depth and breadth of the wisdom of his ancestors, while simultaneously providing a platform to showcase the relationship between the intergenerational genius and trauma that has produced our contemporary Hawaiian experience. * Our conversation begins with the importance of storytelling as humans, we then move to why cultures and communities need to keep this practice alive in order to maintain control over their own narratives, and then we dive into how he carved his path into the film world and some of his own projects. * At present, Justyn is promoting his directorial debut, Down on the Sidewalk in Waikiki, a short film that highlights the Hawaiian poet Wayne Westlake, whose work was ahead of its time. The film is making the rounds in festivals across 2019 and 2020. See www.saltedlogic.com for more info and links! * Justyn graduated from the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts in 2011 with a B.A. in Film Production and a Minor in Business. Upon graduating, he returned home to Hawaiʻi where he worked as a full-time videographer and editor at ʻŌiwi TV – Hawaiʻi's first and only indigenous television broadcasting network. There he had the opportunity to craft his skills behind the camera and in the edit bay on numerous mini-documentary projects, news pieces, commercial work, and non-profit videos. Through ʻŌiwi TV he's been blessed to travel the world, sailing with and documenting the Hōkūleʻa's Worldwide Voyage and has collaborated on several PBS national documentaries, including the Nā Loea series, and Let's Play Music! Slack Key with Cyril Pahinui and Friends. Aside from his work at ʻŌiwi TV, Justyn was a co-director with Matthew Ward on Wichita, his first feature-length film that was developed and produced with colleagues from USC. * For more info and links see www.saltedlogic.com

D.S. Moss: Conversations with mystics, monks and morticians | 2.5

BRINE 2.5 features D.S. Moss, host of the top-ranked podcast (#30 in 2017 by The Atlantic) The Adventures of Memento Mori: A Cynic's Guide for Learning to Live by Remembering to Die. If you havenʻt listened to his show you should (but start AFTER you listen to this episode) and if you are curious about what you will experience, D.S. describes his podcast as exploring the science, mysticism, culture, and mystery of death. The show is satirical and philosophical, and followsÂD.S. as he attempts to reconcile his own impermanence and live a more meaningful life––but the problem is, life keeps getting in the way! Our conversation is about how Mr. Moss (a film lover and screenwriter) leveraged his talent and passion for storytelling into creating a top-rated podcast about the magic of memento mori… and somewhat on a whim no less. There is certainly more than one strategy to living life to its fullest but this is one of the more unique backstories, which showcases how serendipity can ...

Kealopiko: Styled in Hawai’i Nei - fashion, culture, commerce & community | 2.4

The story of Kealopiko, a culturally-rooted Hawai’i fashion, and lifestyle brand is the focus of this episode. The storyteller is Hina Kneubuhl, one of the company's three co-founders, who shares how a botanist, a linguist and a creative got together to develop an innovative partnership that prioritizes cultural values, fulfills community needs, highlights native flora and fauna, as well as ‘ōlelo Hawai’i (the Hawaiian language) and moʻolelo (stories of place) through the vehicle of fashion. From how they create new collections and maintain their personal values to new partnerships and ensuring their production is sustainable and eco-friendly––our conversation affirms that working to bridge intergenerational knowledge with a contemporary aesthetic and technology can produce a new form of community-driven commerce that uplifts culture and prioritizes our connections to the natural world. As they like to say E ʻaʻahu nō a hoʻohanohano i ka ʻāina nei! ... "Wear it and honor this place!" ...

Keoho Lewis: The butterfly effect, healing, martial arts & politics | 1.15

This episode is a conversation with lomilomi (Hawaiian "massage")practitioner, Keohokalani Lewis. We begin with his personal journey to become a healer. We quickly expand into healing and martial arts philosophies and tie our ideas to overarching natural and universal cycles. The core principle that we cycle back to again and again is to first "heal-thyself." Our talk looks at the many ways we, as a society, are out-of-sync with greater natural cycles and how our sole use of the Gregorian calendar, can often limit our understanding of long-range cycles and intergenerational knowledge. We touch upon nutrition and how gut health is a mirror for personal and communal health. Farther into the podcast more of the martial arts philosophies are brought to the table and we ask... "why don't people heal?" or "why is it that some people get sick despite living seemingly "healthy" lifestyles?" As is not surprising Hawaiian history and politics are lightly sprinkled throughout.

Ilima McFarlane: fighting, family, culture & community | Brine 2.2

My guest is the hard-hitting, Bellator MMA Flyweight Champ, Ilima-Lei McFarlane.

She is a super cool mana wahine; a powerful female force. She is also down to earth, funny, and has a true fighter's spirit. But not just in the ring. She is a fighter for community culture and the next generation. She has a scholarship with Intertribal Youth and Native Like Water for Indigenous girls 12-18 years old.

Sonny Ganaden: Decolonizing the law, private prisons & artful journalism | No. 1.14

A basic definition for Restorative Justice is as follows: a system of criminal justice that focuses on the rehabilitation of offenders through reconciliation with victims and the community at large. This definition, however, as logical and straightforward as it is doesn't speak to the kind of justice that is employed as standard practice across the globe, and this includes the United States. Experiencing the justice system, especially for indigenous peoples and (those we too easily label) minorities, is one that is not only inequitable but can have far-reaching, intergenerational effects that delay and even halt forward movement towards holistic, intergenerational, community-wide health and wellness. To discuss how this topic is playing out in Hawaiʻi and the Pacific, And Still the Waters Rise, episode 31, features Hawaiʻi litigator, Sonny Ganaden. His essay Law of the Canoe: Reckoning Colonialism and Criminal Justice in the Pacific is slated to be published in 2019 along with oth...
