For the open-minded, inqusitive

If you enjoy examining both sides of an opinion, this podcast is for you. It reminded my of the "Change My View" thread on Reddit - not that the podcast is trying to change your view per say, but that it presses you to consider more than you would have without asking "why". High quality production and editing make for easy listening.

Great idea and well executed!

Easily one of the most interesting and intelligent podcasts I've listened to. You should ask yourself 'why' you haven't listened to this podcast until you reach the root cause of your depression and lethargy. Meditate on those childhood traumas, cure them with self-love exercises, then dive into this dope podcast.

Insightful, smart, and funny!

By taking a second grader’s inquisitive approach, Ask Five Why’s seeks to break down people’s most strongly held opinions. The pilot episode features the host (Mitch Turck) acting as the guest. I laughed and I learned...what more could you ask for in a podcast?
