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. It 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 tennis great Patrick McEnroe, singer Martha Wash (The Weather Girls), Prince Michael from the smallest country in the world, competitive eaters, nude skydivers, reality contestants, pigs who paint, mermaids, professional mascots and astronauts.

We have over 10,000 listeners from six continents. (So far, Antarctica is immune to our charms.)
