Tonight’s program focuses the events on Aug. 8 in Maui. I have an extended interview with an eyewitness who has also been interviewing survivors for the past two weeks: realtor Eric West. This interview will answer most your questions about how strange the whole incident was, and leave you with a few others.
The Maui segment begins at about 50 minutes, after the first break, though I introduce the topic at the top of the program as well.
Tonight’s program also continues my discussion of the rising tide of fear here on Planet Digital, and contemplates the difference between expecting what others say to be true, and making sure what you say is true.
Here are some additional links that are relevant to the program:
