About Us

Dedicated to bringing people together, one question at a time, Why? assembles a motley crew of folks and asks them the hard questions. (Well, kinda.)

Our show is inspired by the idea that one of the most revolutionary things you can do these days is to try to understand another person. We interview people from all walks of life with fascinating hobbies, jobs & passions. When we say fascinating, we mean fascinating… we’re talking nudity, hair collecting, polyamory, penguin saving.

Why? is designed to allow our guests to share their stories but also give listeners a peek into what inspired them to pursue their paths.

Our past guests have included everyone from rock legends Suzi Quatro and Chris Frantz to Cherry Vanilla, a woman who not only was the publicity genius who helped Bowie make it big in America, but also had her own band that included both Sting and Stuart Copeland. We’ve spoken to Prince Michael from the smallest principality in the world, Super Bowl winning mascot KC Wolf, members of the US Curling Team, competitive eaters, nude skydivers, pigs who paint, mermaids, and astronauts.

We have thousands of listeners from six continents. (So far, Antarctica is immune to our charms.)

If you or someone you know want to be a guest on the show, or you want us to explore something crazy on your behalf, drop us a line: thepodcastwhy@gmail.com.
