The Poly Podcast will empower our Pasifika peoples to share stories to improve our health and wellbeing – like our forefathers who lashed together their vaka, swap resources, shared rations and knowledge to traverse the Pacific Ocean; we are on a similar journey towards healthy and better lifestyles. Each week guest speakers are invited to share their story through a talanoa with the hope of assisting us all navigate through the journey.
The podcast episodes include personal and professional stories, as well as practical tips to help our community achieve their well-being aspirations.
