What alternate universe is this!? Maleko & Flash pretend to get serious with our first political guest ever! Andria Tupola, admittedly the first politician to reply to Flash's texts and emails gets the honor of breaking the boys into the world of politics. Why does a music teacher go into politics in the first place? Does she know her Twitter Password? Why Republican? Why now? What's her position on LGBTQ rights? Plus her thoughts on Brett Kavanaugh, social media in politics, medical marijuana, the gentrification of Oahu, our homeless problem, and what Tonga gets right. If everyone in the studio had a concealed carry gun, who would she be most afraid of? Plus Sway & Mo from Mokus show off their new signature drink menu. Ige where you stay?!

For Hawaii’s Aug. 11 primary, Civil Beat asked candidates to answer some questions about where they stand on various issues and what their priorities will be if elected.
