Crackin Coconuts (Part 1)

After checking in with the emails & the diary, we’re joined by four 2nd Gen Tongan leaders for a great conversation about culture, identity & faith – it’s such a rich conversation we had to cut it in half. We were amazed by the generosity & humility of their answers. Malo … and because podcast games are totally #Lit, we played some #TonganTrivia.

Playing with Fyre

This episode is heaps of fun (59 mins of fun!) Rhanee drops by to play a special Reality TV #LitOrQuit. We also hear about WXPC #UpLate at Surrender Festival coming in March .
