HONOLULU -Mayor Rick Blangiardi announced today the launch of his new podcast, The One Oʻahu Podcast with Mayor Rick Blangiardi, a weekly podcast where the mayor and other City and County of Honolulu leaders answer pressing questions from residents about public safety, homelessness, affordable housing and Honolulu's high cost of living, among a variety of other topics.
