The Holoholo Podcast

Arts & Culture Podcasts >

The Holoholo was created to start a conversation with women + men from Hawaii about their creative pathways and pursuits. With each episode, this podcast connects with artists, filmmakers, musicians, designers and young professionals to look at how their unique upbringing in paradise influences their work. Being from Hawaii ourselves, we know how special it is to call our little islands HOME and how your career and passions in life can sometimes push you to move elsewhere to pursue your dreams. The Holoholo is a way to stay connected with these leaders and taste-makers who are leaving an impact on their local communities away from the Islands and learn how their local perspective influences the global work they do.
