Casey Harlow was born on a beautiful fall day in 1989, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Not much else is known about his youth other than he had a love for radio at a young age.  He came to HPR from the college radio station KWVA in Eugene, OR, in 2012. He started out as a board operator and, having worked in practically all of the departments at HPR, is currently the station’s Jack-of-all-trades.  In his off-time, he’s a Soul/R&B DJ and host of a Sunday morning show on KTUH.

A big celebration is being planned for Hōkūleʻa’s homecoming at Magic Island a week from Saturday – marking the end of the Mālama Honua voyage. Meanwhile, the crews of the Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia are still making their way through the Central Pacific towards home. We checked in with navigator Kaʻiulani Murphy for a final update.

A lot has happened since our last update from the Hōkūleʻa. The crew made it safely to Tahiti where it met up with the Hikianalia - ending the worldwide voyage that started in 2014.

Now both canoes are sailing through French Polynesia before heading back home. We caught up with Nāʻālehu Anthony on board the Hikianalia.

The Hōkūleʻa was welcomed in Nuku Hiva in the Marquesas early last week. But the stop was only a short one, as the crew set sail for Tahiti – where they will meet up with the Hikianalia. We caught up with Bruce Blankenfeld on board last week – where the crew remained in good spirits and were keeping busy.

It’s been 2 weeks since the Hōkūleʻa left the Galapagos Islands for Rapa Nui – or Easter Island. This is one of the toughest legs on the worldwide journey due to the size of the island. But we caught up with Nāʻālehu Anthony who says the conditions, crew and fishing are all good.

North Korea’s latest missile launch has sparked condemnations from the United States and its allies in the Asia Pacific. It also led to an urgent meeting of the U.N. Security Council. But events coming elsewhere on the Korean peninsula in less than a month are likely to draw a different kind of reaction. HPR’s Bill Dorman has more in today’s Asia Minute.
