Opportunity to be Featured on Hawaii Real Podcast
The Native Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce (NHCC) is proud to support the Hawaii Real Podcast, hosted by NHCC Member Ioane Ke'ehu. In his words, Io describes how the Podcast came to be:
I love podcasts. I am a big fan of such programs as The Joe Rogan Experience, and London Real, among several others. Being a Hawaii boy, I naturally looked around locally to see if there was a high quality One on One interview style long-form podcast (I know it’s a mouthful!). When I didn’t find one, an idea spurted, “Make One”. And Hawaii Real was born.
Created in 2019, the Hawaii Real Podcast is a video podcast which utilizes quality dynamic microphones, professional lighting and DSLR cameras with qualify close-up lenses.
Since the first episode, Hawaii Real has grown its following organically and has had over 60 episodes on air highlighting relevant issues and featuring guests such as:

NHCC is excited to offer 1 NHCC Member the exclusive opportunity to be the featured guest on an upcoming episode of the Hawaii Real Podcast. This is a great opportunity to gain exposure for your business or to bring awareness to an issue of importance/relevance for our community.
For the episode, we would like to focus on one of the following themes/discussion areas:
- If you work in OR own a business in the hospitality industry, what are your thoughts on the future of tourism in Hawaii?
- There is extensive discussion around reimagining a local economy that is more circular, more resilient and more values driven. How do we go about achieving this?
- What does it mean to you to be a Native Hawaiian business?
- What do you see as the largest challenges that Kanaka business owners face? What can/should we do collectively to address?
- How do you define economic self-determination that is led by kanaka maoli?
- During the pandemic, we have seen an increase in small businesses as well as new and innovative products, services and ways of doing business - with increased competition and a changing market, how is your business staying relevant?
