The Show Format
All shows are recorded live and recorded for future broadcast. The format is fairly open with few time constraints. We’ll keep dialing in the details with your feedback.
We do audio and video meetings via zoom, google meet and we publish the shows at HawaiiCannabis.org.
News or sponsor interstitials vary depending on length of show. The show usually runs 30 minutes with two breaks at 00:10:00 and 00:20:00.
We are seeking patient-friendly businesses, groups, organizations and individuals interested in sponsoring the show. Send us a note: firstname.lastname@example.org

About Guest Hosts
Guests hosts are invited to conduct interviews within the existing format. Guest hosts are asked to stay focused on the guest by asking questions. Discussion will be conducted prior to the day of the interview so intentions and expectations between the guest and the guest host are understood.
Smooth scheduling is easy and affordable for everyone. When scheduling goes wrong, it can cost everyone time and money and inconvenience viewers. So please, carefully choose a time based on your needs.
It is possible to reschedule a week in advance. A few days in advance is considered a cancellation. Cancellations suck. So please be sure to know your availability. Choose a time and day carefully and copy the information over to your calendar. Do not forget your show time. Be early. Being late is a cancellation.
Sometimes scheduling is so easy, we forget how important dates and times are to running a smooth show. Mahalo nui!
