Memoirs Pasifika: Exploring events, movements, and people

Despite possessing a wealth of fascinating stories, very few podcasts discuss Micronesia’s unique history or tap into the region’s archival collections. Memoirs Pasifika attempts to meet that need through a deeply researched podcast dedicated to recent Micronesian history — while giving voice to the people who lived it. Each episode explores a different topic, and is largely told through interviews with people who witnessed or somehow participated in the events in question. Our hope is that Memoirs Pasifika will help to grow interest in the region, foster discussion, and inspire further investigation into the events, people, social movements, and ideas that helped shape contemporary Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, the Marshall Islands, Palau, and the Federated States of Micronesia, as well as Micronesia’s impacts on the global stage.
