The second season of the podcast consists of 12 episodes beginning in January ~ Kāʻelo 2022 with a shift in focus to Hawaiian cultural practices that inform us how to meaningfully and sustainably interact with the place we live based on traditional knowledge systems.
Season II episodes will be released throughout the year on the Hilo moon phase of every malama (lunar month) to raise awareness of this ancient yet relevant practice of keeping time. This segment was released February 1, at the start of the Hawaiʻi lunar month of Kaulua.
