Hawaii Pacific University communications professor John Hart joins Pod Squad host Chad Blair and Civil Beat opinion editor Todd Simmons to talk about why the Honolulu mayoral candidates are reluctant  to participate in public debates, why local TV stations are reluctant to host mayoral debates and whether it actually even matters.

Todd Simmons, John Hart and Chad Blair gather in Civil Beat’s sound studio for the Pod Squad recording session.
