    Brief excerpt from interview: In fiction... Joyce's Ireland... is a very distinctive understanding of place . . . A better understanding of where they live . . . puts them in contact with people they would not have otherwise met . . . Our program, our show, what we do is related to this place . . . Nowhere else, I think, in America would you be going to Kawai High to do a story about the . . . community of Native Hawaiians . . . Doing the stories gives the students some sense of not only the place, but it's a Hawaiian place that these people feel strongly about.

One of the virtues of coming to campus is that you're generally familiar with the campus . . . I want [students] to go to places that are a little out of their comfort zone . . . you need to be able to go outside of your comfort zone and investigate, ask why—asking why can be very uncomfortable.
