Wonderful!

WHWN is an absolute favorite! It’s obvious that N8 puts extraordinary effort into finding discussing imperative topics with guests that truly care about being a positive force in this world. I learn something from every episode - super grateful for such an awesome show!

Fun and Engaging

You'll learn a lot from N8. The show takes many different approaches to exploring environmental issues and solutions, but they're all a lot of fun. It's a balanced show that considers lots of perspectives and doesn't take itself too seriously.

Don't get turned off by the low production value of the first few episodes. There is some great content in there, and things get better and better over time. The most recent episodes are fantastic.
