Introducing Cat Chat

People have asked me, “Why don’t you do TV?”

And my answer is always the same: “I don’t own a hairbrush.”

That’s partly true — the other part being that I never felt I fit into the traditional TV mold. I don’t sit nicely, I don’t wear heels and — yes — I don’t want to brush my hair if I don’t have to. But I do see the value and allure of videos, especially in the ability to visually share a story or connect with readers, many of whom I’ve never met IRL. (That’s “In Real Life” for you non-geeks!)

So we came up with a concept that better fit my personality — and my distaste for mascara: a weekly online TV show on Nonstop Honolulu, with me dishing with a guest about everything from relationships to reality TV. From a couch, no footwear necessary.

Welcome to Cat Chat.

Our first episode features self-described local geek (and all-around nice guy) Ryan Ozawa (@hawaii) who, like me, is addicted to CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0.” So we met up to talk story about the show and about the upcoming reunion of the fictitious Kukui High School tomorrow night at Oceans 808 at Restaurant Row.

Check it out — and tell us what you think! We hope you enjoy it!
