Show Notes

Thank you so much for tuning in with the Read It With Whiskey podcast! In this episode, we are speaking with Bran Kairos, author of Kama'aina.

In this interview, Bran and I chat about Hawaiin culture and language, how he uses the concept of childhood trauma in his work, and how he put a lot of himself into a character within Kama'aina. And of course, we talk characters and inspiration for his book too!

There was a bit I had to cut out of this episode due to spoilers, so make sure to watch the full, unedited interview video at As a patron, you will also gain access to watch all video content from past episodes, AND exclusive audio episodes by Laura, all about the books she reads and her own writing career.

Here is how to contact ­­­­Bran and learn more about his books and projects:
