Kamehameha & Lili’uokalani on history podcast

This is from earlier this month and I kept forgetting to post it… I sometimes listen to the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast from, and earlier this month they did two programs on Hawaii:

Kamehameha The Great
Born shortly after the appearance of Halley’s comet over Hawai’i in 1758, Kamehameha was hailed as the king who would unite the Hawai’ian islands. But how did he turn this prophecy into reality, and what happened to him in the end? Tune in and learn more.

Who was the Last Queen of Hawaii?
Born in 1838, Lili’uokalani became the queen of Hawaii in 1891. Unfortunately, she was destined to be Hawaii’s last monarch. Listen in and learn how Hawaii became a state in this podcast.

They do pretty good job of the brief history of these figures and their eras, including mention of the Blount Report and the Ku’e Petition.
