S1:E6 – Brittany L Afu Brings the “20-Something” Perspective To The Studio

The Faika Podcast is Brought To You By PolyByDesign

Brought to you by PolyByDesign the Faika Podcast is dedicated to finding and promoting positive Polynesian Role Models through the median of the spoken word.  Co-Hosts Annette Moli and Carl L Johnson search the Pacific Islander communities to bring you traditional and contemporary topics and speakers that bring their message and passion across in a friend-to-friend  (“Faika”) conversational format designed to let the listener not only hear the topics and guests beliefs, but also get to know them as a person, a family member and a member of the community.

Original Faika Co-Host Brittany L Afu returns to the legendary Studio 2b to bring a younger perspective to the discussion of several contemporary topics.  Brittany is the Lead Facilitator for the Bay Area’s “Essence of Mana” program that is designed to increase awareness of mental health issues, reduce stigma and create access to care and services among the Pacific Islander population, with a particular focus on Samoans and Tongans, in North San Mateo County (SMC). We will be discussing the Tongan / Samoan Rugby rivalry that saw a flag burning, heated exchange between the two cultures and culminated in the knock down drag out Rugby match that took place on Friday November 4th between the two Polynesian national teams.

Threats being made over social media and how disruptive it can be to the lives of those threatened will also be on the table.  Many times Monitor-Monarchs gas themselves up with Keyboard-Courage to express themselves in ways that they would never have the testicular fortitude to do in real life.  What happens when real life collides with a person’s social media personna will be squarely in the Faika crosshairs.

Join us on Sunday from 10:00 to 12:00 Noon at FCCFREERADIO.COM in the iconic Studio2b and FAIKA WITH US!!  If you miss the live show you can download the episode shortly after it concludes at Noon on the Fccfreeradio website.
