About This Show
Offshore, from Honolulu Civil Beat & PRX, is a new immersive storytelling podcast about a Hawaii most tourists never see. In Season 1, “A Killing in Waikiki,” Offshore investigates the violent deaths of two young Native Hawaiians — one in 1932, the other in 2011. The 10-episode series explores issues of race, federal power and policing in America’s most diverse state. If Hawaii can’t figure it out, what hope is there for the rest of America? The answer might surprise you.

And if what we’re seeing across the country at places like Oak Flat and Standing Rock is a clash between western values and indigenous values, is there a way for us to find a better balance in the future?
