#3 I Have Got Some People Waiting For Me. Aziz’s life has been a story of chance – and choice. As Michael pieces together Aziz’s journey from Sudan to Manus, he realises Aziz has been searching for a safe place for about eight years. So what gives him the ability, and the energy, to speak out? How has Aziz fought for so long, and what makes him want to be ‘the messenger’? ‘I’m pretending like I’m really happy, and laugh, and you know, smiling on the phones and doing stuff like that – so they feel like, “Oh, my son is really living in a good environment”. So they think like that, but the opposite is the truth.’ Aziz Aziz tells Michael, ‘I have got some people ...waiting for me. They love me, they want me to be with them.’ Haltingly, and sometimes with great difficulty, Aziz starts to share stories about his home, the family that he longs to see, and why he fled. Looking to find out more, Michael speaks to Sudan expert Anne Bartlett about the current situation there. As Aziz shares snapshots from his past, Anne talks Michael through the conflict in Sudan, which, despite leaving the headlines long ago, continues to unfold. Michael worries that he’s adding to Aziz’s trauma by digging up painful memories – ever aware of how hard it is to have these kinds of conversations in short, overlapping messages, without the benefit of reading someone’s signals face to face. Meanwhile, Aziz weighs up how much to tell his family about Manus, and explains to Michael why he’s sometimes tortured by regret.

#107: The Scariest Navy SEAL I've Ever Met...And What He Taught Me. Jocko Willink (@jockowillink) is one of the scariest human beings imaginable. He is a lean 230 pounds. He is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu expert who used to tap out 20 Navy SEALs per workout. He is a legend in the Special Operations world. His eyes look through you more than at you. He rarely does interviews, if ever. But a few weeks ago, Jocko ended up staying at my house and we had a caffeinated mind meld. Here's some background... Jocko enlisted in the Navy after high school and spent 20 years in the SEAL Teams, first as an enlisted SEAL operator and then as a SEAL officer. During his second tour in Iraq, he led SEAL Task Unit Bruiser in the Battle of Ramadi--some of the toughest and sustained combat in the SEAL Teams since Vietnam. Under his leadership, Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated Special Operations Unit of the entire war in Iraq and helped bring stability to Ramadi. Jocko was awarded the Bronze Star and a Silver Star. Upon returning to the United States, Jocko served as the Officer-in-Charge of training for all West Coast SEAL Teams, designing and implementing some of the most challenging and realistic combat training in the world. So why is Jocko opening up? Well, in part, we have mutual friends. Second, he is the co-author of an incredible new book — Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win -- which I've been loving. Trust me. Buy it. This is his first mainstream interview and one you won't want to miss. Show notes and links for this episode can be found at www.fourhourworkweek.com/podcast.

The Global Philosopher: Should Borders Matter?. Michael Sandel explores the philosophical justifications made for national borders. Using a pioneering state-of-the-art studio at the Harvard Business School, Professor Sandel is joined by 60 participants from over 30 countries in a truly global digital space. Is there any moral distinction between a political refugee and an economic migrant? If people have the right to exit a country, why not a right to enter? Do nations have the right to protect the affluence of their citizens? And is there such a thing as a 'national identity'? These are just some of the questions addressed by Professor Sandel in this first edition of The Global Philosopher.Audience producer: Louise ColettaProducer: David EdmondsEditor: Richard Knight(Image taken by Rose Lincoln)

Rank #2: Hawaii Bucket List: Big Island Edition : Hawaii Travel Podcast Show 32. The Hawaii Travel Podcast Show 32 for Tuesday August 6th 2013. Our Hawaii Bucket List series continues with a special Big Island Edition! We pick the things we want to do on the Big Island before we die. All that and more, on this episode of the Hawaii Travel Podcast. WE HATE UNBUNDLING Unbundling is that annoying thing airlines have been doing for the past few years. There was a time when you could just buy a ticket, and that would be that. You would get on the plane, get a pillow to use, a blanket, snakes, a movie, drinks, anything you could think of, within reason,was just included in your the price of your ticket. But then along came the practice of unbundling . Now, unfortunately, some Hawaii hotels will soon begin charging a cleaning fee upon a guest’s checkout to cover the cost of cleaning the room for the next guest. The new checkout cleaning fees are due to begin at 16 condominium properties on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island managed by Outrigger starting in December of 2013. Other hotels will likely follow suit as Outrigger is one of the largest and most successful hotel management companies in Hawaii. The cleaning charges range from $40 for a Studio to $70 for a Three Bedroom Condominium, except at the Kapalua Villas on Maui where the charges range from $130 to $180. State taxes are added to these fees as well. The new cleaning fees follow a pattern of Hawaii hotels “unbundling” services that were previously included in the daily room cost, and then charging separate, additional fees for the previously included services. Most notable in this regard have been “resort fees” which started around 10 years ago with a few high-end hotels charging these fees. Today there are 59 Hawaii hotels that charge resort fees ranging from $2.50 per night at the AQUA Hotel Molokai to $36.65 per night at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki. Travel-Hawaii.com maintains a complete list of resort fees at Hawaii hotels at http://Travel-Hawaii.com/hawaiiresortfees.html MCDONALD’S HULA BURGER Rose emailed in, she asked… Dear Dan and Jennifer, I just found you guys and have been listening to all of your back episodes! Great fun and information. When I was about 10 years old, I remember eating at a McDonalds. I think they used to have a Hawaiian Burger. I remember thinking it was terrible and was tricked into eating it by my parents. Do you remember McDonalds ever having a Hawaiian burger on the menu? Rose in Schaumburg, IL This was something called the Hula Burger, and it was considered to be on of the biggest bombs that McDonald’s ever had on their menu. And, it was invented by Ray Croc himself. Grilled pineapple on a cold bun with toppings. Around that same time a franchise owner in Cincinnati thought, enough of this, not only are we losing meat eaters on Fridays, but now we also have to deal with the weird Hawaiian thing, so he came up with a sandwich that went head-to-head with the Hula Burger. The new sandwich won, hands-down, and the the Filet-o-Fish is still one of the most popular sandwiches at McDonalds today. BIG ISLAND BUCKET LIST MANTA RAY NIGHT DIVE For Reservations call (888) 333-4668 For Information call (808) 324-4668 Snorkelers and ride alongs welcome, meaning you don’t need to dive in; you can just ride along on the boat. One warning, these are real marine wildlife. There are no guarantees you’ll see any, but they say they are there about 80% of the time. This takes place on the Kona side. You can do a single tank or a double tank charter. Single tank last for about 3 hours, double tank lasts for about five hours. The cost ranges from about $100 to about $135. Tips, no touching! As much as you want to reach and grab one and have them pull you along that is a bad thing to do. You’ll actually go to the bottom and form a circle and let the rays swim above you. Snorkelers stay up on top and look down at the rays. HIKING THE THE MULIWAI TRAIL This trail starts in the Waipio Valley. This is a difficult and long 19 mile trail. It starts with a brutal zigzag of switch-backs that ascend to 1,200 feet in less than a mile! After that, it does get easier but is still hard. The trail takes you through gulches, forests, past beautiful pools and waterfalls, even overgrown ruins and in to the Waimanu Valley, all the while offering glimpses of the ocean. This would be a three day hike with camping for me, but well worth it for the experience! Check out this PDF map courtsey of hawaii-guide.com to see if this is for you! BIKE TOUR OF KILAUEA VOLCANO http://bikevolcano.com/ Toll Free Reservations: 1-888-934-9199 Local Reservations: (808) 934-9199 This would be fun for anyone, even families who are somewhat fit. You start at the Visitors Center in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. You’ll get a quick overview of what your day will be like. You’ll get fitted with a nice mountain bike. Teach you what you need to know. You’ll get safety equipment etc. How close you get to eruption? Good question! You’ll ride to the Jagger Museum, and that is the closest you get to the volcano. So, here you can jump off the bike and look around the museum, which is always fun. Then you hope back on your bike and head toward the steam vents along the rim of the Caldera. So, you’ll go from the steam vents through the rainforest area on the Summit. You’ll actually be riding on many stretches of road that partially collapsed from the earthquake back in 1982. Then you’ll hit Crater Rim Drive, and that is a beautiful drive by car, I can only imagine how awesome it would be by bike. Same with Chain of Craters Road, that would be fantastic to see via bike. You’ll see big craters and old lava flows and lava trees. So, by that point you’ll be tired and an air conditioned van picks you up and takes you to the Ocean end of Chain of Craters Road. They serve you lunch right there on the ocean. Again, because this is my bucket list item, I would like to go in the winter months so we could possibly see some whales. Depending on the tour, they also apparently have a wine tasting option. The price is about $140. MOVE TO BIG ISLAND FOR MAKAHIKI The Makahiki season was the ancient Hawaiian festival in honoring of the god Lono. It starts in November and runs thru February- the best time to escape the bad winter weather on the mainland! The season was a time of peace when war was forbidden. Work generally stopped as people feasted, played games, and made offerings. Today it is still a celebration with many fun events. http://keolamagazine.com/magazines/hawaii/2012-issues/nov-dec-12/makahiki-codes-for-regeneration.html DON THE BEACHCOMBER MAI TAI FESTIVAL This is a fun annual event that has bartenders competing from all over the world for the title of who makes the best mai tai. The winning bartender will make a cool $10,000. It would be fun to compete. Of course, it would be more fun to not compete and just go there and drink. This takes place on the Big Island at the Royal Kona Resort in Kona. August 17, 2013 10:00am – 6:00pm http://www.donsmaitaifest.com/ IF YOU LIKED THIS, PLEASE SUBSCRIBE!

Rank #1: The first thing to eat on your Hawaii Vacation. Travel companies to provide more airline pricing disclosureThe FAA has recently required travel companies to do a better job at disclosing airfare prices to consumers. Very often you see a price but when you go to book it it's not available. While transparency of this kind is always a good thing and something that we support, the new law raises a concern about a program that we offer to our clients which is certainly beneficial. We currently can take a small deposit for a booking and not ticket the airfare and wait to see if the price becomes less expensive over time. The issue is that the price could also go up and the government wants to make sure that consumers understand this and the information is disclosed. You can rest assured knowing that we will do everything we can to continue to help consumers book Hawaii vacations with small deposit so they can pay over time.What to Eat when you arrive in HawaiiSo what's the first Hawaiian delicacy you want to eat when you get off the plane here in Hawaii? That's what we asked our Facebook and twitter friends which gave us a chance to talk about one of our favorite subjects food in Hawaii. Today we share with you some of these suggestions to help you get ready for your upcoming Hawaii vacation.Waikiki Hotel RenovationsCarol was interested to know what kind of construction projects are slated for Waikiki hotels this year. We go over to renovation projects we're aware of in Waikiki which include a major renovation at the Halekulani.Properties scheduled this year are; The Halekulani, Aqua Bamboo, Aston Waikiki Sunset and Waikiki Banyan
Rank #2: Stepping out of your comfort zone on your Hawaii Vacation. When you come to Hawaii, it's good to step out of your comfort zone and try new thingsWe asked our Facebook followers to give us some insight about how they've stepped out of their comfort zone while vacationing in Hawaii, and we received some great feedback. While some folks have faced their fears with zip lining and parasailing, others have branched out and tried local foods like poi and loco mocos. Some still have aspirations and dreams of how they plan to go beyond their limits with water sports, dolphin swims, or surfing. A trip to Hawaii can be as adventurous or as relaxing as you'd like, but today let's focus on the thrill-seeking aspect of travel.Thrills don't always necessarily mean a physical adventure. Stepping out of your comfort zone can mean anything from trying a different type of food or clothing style, to branching beyond normal music preferences. And what better time to try these new things than when you're on vacation? Especially when vacationing in a place like Hawaii, where customs and traditions remain rich and alive in the everyday culture. Plus Hawaii's natural landscapes allow a multitude of adventures for the everyday vacationer, from small exploits like hiking to bigger (scary) journeys like shark cage diving. You're in a playground while visiting Hawaii, so take advantage of it and return home with at the very least, a killer story.A few of our Facebook commentators mentioned they tried poi. This is a traditional food that Polynesians, Hawaiians, and many other locals still eat today, but is an ancient staple that was considered a sacred part of daily Hawaiian life. Made from taro that has been mashed and pounded into a viscous liquid, many visitors get the chance to try poi at luaus, but you can find it at most grocery stores island-wide. I think you either love or hate poi, and personally, I could do without. But at least I've tried it! And it's a good feeling knowing I've branched out and tried a type of food that is completely outside of my norm.Water activities are a huge hurdle for many visitors to Hawaii. A few weeks back we talked about how limiting (or not) Hawaii is if you don't know how to swim. But this week we're saying, get out there and create some experiences, water related or not! Hawaii is an ideal place for ocean sports such as surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, swimming, SUPing, and more. It is a much more agreeable place to jump in the water than any other location in the Continental US, because the water is warm and refreshing and the sun dries you off in minutes. Plus the colors are so tempting it would drive you mad if you didn't at least wade in the tropical shallows. It is a great place to test your limitations and see how brave you really are. There is something about Hawaii that brings out the adventure seeker in many people, even if it is just tasting a different food or attempting a different sport. I know I can say this is true for myself while living here in Hawaii.When you step outside of your comfort zone, most times you receive the reward of personal achievement and powerful accomplishment. This feeling is truly something we should experience every… month… or so. Branching out and trying something different gives us fulfillment beyond what we experience on a day-to-day level. And fulfillment is something everyone seeks; it's what we question about our lives or struggle with every day. Humans constantly strive for fulfillment in their lives. So this being said, why not branch out and try something new or different? Even if it is something like tasting sashimi for the first time, swimming into the deeper parts of the ocean, or renting a mo-ped instead of a car, these are the fun experiences that ultimately build our character and give us satisfaction. These feelings also ultimately become deliciously addictive, so explore away and find yourself in an experience you never thought probable. Don't lose your nerve, because my guess is,

Context of Christmas card image: The Polynesian migration to Hawaiʻi was part of one of the most remarkable achievements of humanity: the discovery and settlement of the remote, widely scattered islands of the central Pacific. The migration began before the birth of Christ. While Europeans were sailing close to the coastlines of continents before developing navigational instruments that would allow them to venture onto the open ocean, voyagers from Fiji, Tonga, and Sāmoa began to settle islands in an ocean area of over 10 million square miles. The settlement took a thousand years to complete and involved finding and fixing in mind the position of islands, sometimes less than a mile in diameter on which the highest landmark was a coconut tree. By the time European explorers entered the Pacific Ocean in the 16th century almost all the habitable islands had been settled for hundreds of years.

Rank #2: Ciara Lacy. Documentary filmmaker Ciara Lacy was valedictorian of her graduating class at Kamehameha Schools and Yale University alumna is the daughter of a Native Hawaiian activist. Lacy’s love of storytelling and social justice causes began in Central Oʻahu with an electric typewriter, and led her to New York and Los Angeles and work on a succession of films and other media projects. A painful medical condition forced Lacy to reevaluate her life and return to Hawaiʻi. She underwent treatment and found a new source of inspiration in a story about Hawaiian men trying to reconnect with their native culture as inmates who’d been shipped to an Arizona prison. This drove Ciara (pronounced Kee-ah-rah) to create the documentary film Out of State, with colleague Beau Bassett, chronicling the journey of two released prisoners returning to Hawaiʻi to make a new start. This May, Lacy’s documentary will premiere nationally on PBS stations, including PBS Hawaiʻi, on the film series Independent Lens. Long Story Short with Leslie Wilcox is a production of PBS Hawai‘i.

Rank #1: Episode 4: Who’s Got a Better Idea?. More than 20 years ago, Hawai‘i was an early adopter of drug court—allowing nonviolent substance abusers to avoid prison with a program of supervised treatment, work and regular drug testing. Today, 85% of those cases involve crystal methamphetamine—and it’s overwhelming the system. There’s a waiting list for drug court, and a waiting list to get into treatment centers helping users of crystal meth. Hospital emergency rooms taking care of crystal methamphetamine users often face financial charges running to the tens of thousands of dollars, largely absorbed by taxpayers. Treatment professionals say a bigger role for primary care physicians could help deal with earlier stages of the use of this drug—and also help a movement toward a more honest and realistic dealing with Hawai‘i’s crisis of crystal methamphetamine use.

Rank #2: Kaulana Mahina with Kalei Nu‘uhiwa. Observing the sky phenomena is the realm of the kilolani in the discipline of Papahulilani--clouds, winds, sun, stars and moon are among the prominent foci of this discipline. In the traditional Hawaiian world view, these atmospheric elements embody the pantheon of kino akua Hawai'i, and provide a fundamental function in ancestral memory still essential in the modern Hawaiian consciousness. The behavior of these members of the heavenly realm can be tracked across the cycles of day and night, the waxing and waning of the moon, and the procession of the sun in its seasonal arcs over the year. Learning the roughly 30 day moon cycle and the connection of these to the behavior of everything in the living universe around us is the topic of Kalei Nu'uhiwa's presentation, Kaulana Mahina.
