Happy sixth anniversary to Why? Radio – please help us have a seventh.

Last Sunday’s episode of Why? Radio got rave reviews ( It was just another example of the outstanding and unique programming we provide every month. It also marked our sixth anniversary. As unbelievable as it might seem, for six years now, Why? Radio has brought you in-depth discussions that respect your intelligence. No gimmicks, no flash, just high-energy conversations with some of the world’s best thinkers, brought to you with humor and clarity by the show’s host Jack Russell Weinstein.

But we need your help more than ever. Why? Radio has to be “self-sustaining.” We have to raise our own money and pay our own bills; we get no money from the University of North Dakota. Not surprisingly, there aren’t a lot of grants for philosophy out there and there are even fewer for public philosophy. We rely almost entirely on our listeners. So, today we are asking you to please donate. Your contribution is tax deductible, and because Why? Radio is so inexpensive to produce (every guest volunteers his or her time), your donation goes a long way. A very long way.

We would also like to offer you an incentive.

For gifts of $25 or more, donors will receive the world jazz CD Lua e Sol from Mark Weinstein (while supplies last). This is the album that contains all of the wonderful music that makes up the show’s soundtrack.

For gifts of $100 or more, donors will receive a handful of his CDs, remarkable music from Brazil, Cuba, and some straight-ahead jazz. You can visit Mark’s website and listen to his other music at

Donations of $250 or more will get the CD’s and you’ll be named on the air as an episode’s sponsor. You’ll be a role-model for all of our listeners.

So, please visit our website to donate:

Because really, if you won’t support philosophy, who will?

Thank you for your support and thank you for listening to Why? Radio.
