Ep. 13: The Dead Can’t Dance (Season 1 Finale)

Note:  For best listener experience, headphones are suggested but not required. 


Aloha!  Thanks for joining me on tonight's virtual bonfire!  I see you got the fire started, mahalo very much!  I've been so busy.

The trailer you heard at the start of the episode was for my friends Amanda and Trevin with the Seriously Sinister Podcast.  They discuss "killer facts and spooky true petty crime stories" which was my cup of tea.  Check out the Seriously Sinister Podcast's in the show notes.


Tonight's story involves the bloody history of Pakaka Heiau (temple), bad TikTok dances, and the repercussions of disrespecting the dead...
So sit back, pop a green bottle and....yunodakine.... and let's get into this.

Show Notes:
The "Dead Can't Dance Challenge" was made up for this story.  Influencers are not dancing in morbid places for clout (at least I hope they're not).
Seriously Sinister Podcast 
Mokoliʻi (unfortunately, aka) Ch*naman's Hat.  Named after the island's resemblance to a conical hat.  
Sandy Beach
Heiau Pakaka
When typing up the show notes, I found this blog post detailing the heiau, Russian/American fort, and a model of old Honolulu where the heiau once stood.  (Wish I found this post when actually writing the story lol)
