Offshore (PRX)

Stories from Hawaii

Ben created, executive produced and produced the first season of this serialized, storytelling show for Honolulu news website Civil Beat and PRX.

The first season, “The Death of Kollin Elderts,” told the story of a police killing that happened in Waikiki in 2011. Along the way, we explored Hawaii’s colonial past, race relations on the islands and how this one case brought a whole history to bear witness on this one, still-ongoing case.

After training the Civil Beat crew in podcasting and audio best practices, Ben stepped back to edit and supervise season 2, “The Mountain.”
