KPE Episode 163 "Nightmare"

"Nightmare" by Elizabeth Pulford is reviewed by Jordan with Jama'l as his DJ. Jordan has also drawn this graphic to enhance his podcast.
In this story a group of boys try to keep a girl out of their club by making a rule that you can only belong if you have short hair. Cindy has a lovely long plait and so they think that will fix her. Of course it doesn't! She gets out a pair of scissors - and I think you can guess what happens next.
The boys have a bit of a chat in this podcast about the Niuean custom of the oldest son keeping his hair long. Anyone who knows Jordan will understand why this came up in the conversation. Have a listen to the podcast as Jordan explains what it is all about.


  1. What an awesome podcast Jordan and Jamal. Nightmare is a really interesting story. That picture was amazing and there was so much detail. Good expresion and heaps of information about your culture and the book. I'm looking forward to your next podcast.

  3. To Jordan and Jamal,

    Great podcast. I enjoyed listening to it. Good expresion, but I think that both of you need to speak a bit louder. I might try and read that book myself. Can't wait for another one.

  12. Listening to your podcast has made me want to get your reviewed book and read it.I am curious to find out what is going to happen next.
    I liked the way you both brought in real experience around Jordan's cultural traditions. Your questions were really well thought out Jamal and Jordan - you explained the traditon around hair-cutting really clearly.How proud you must feel being the oldest boy in a Niuean family and the hair cutting ceremony sounds very special.
    You both spoke clearly and you were very articulate (that is a word to look up in the dictionary).You really got me hooked on the story and I wanted to hear more.Can't wait to listen to your next podcast. Well done!
