||CleanHow will we fix climate change?||Tai is freaking out about climate change. He's worried we're doomed. Tides are rising, species are dying from all of the heat. He's finding it hard to have hope...until he meets a man from NASA.||11/21/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanWhich is cooler, zero or infinity?||Before he fully spoke English, Tai's first language was math. He loves numbers! Now he's talking to mathematicians about the ultimate coolness of two very special numbers: zero and infinity.||11/14/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanWhy do we dream?||After thinking through a recent terrifying nightmare, Tai starts to question the importance of dreams. Why can't our minds just do nothing when we sleep?||11/7/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanWhat happens after you die?||The death of his grandfather has Tai thinking about the afterlife. The idea that our bodies and consciousness become nothing is really weird and confusing. So Tai turns to different religions for answers.||10/30/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanShould we trust our gut?||We've all heard the saying trust your gut, but is that scientifically accurate? Tai grapples with what that really means. If our guts are making decisions does that mean there's a brain in our gut?||10/23/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanWhat is love?||Love is weird. How can this thing take over your body and bend it to its will? Tai looks to science, philosophy and his mom for answers.||10/23/2018||Free||View in iTunes|

Brilliant Podcast for the Inquisitive!
... and not just for kids either.
Tai Asks Why
Meet Tai, a little kid with TONS of questions! (I don't know if Tai is a boy or girl, but the voice sounds like a boy, so I call Tai a boy;🙃) Here, Tai is wondering: what is love? He asks his mom, his little brother, and more people. His mom told him really good advice: when his mom first held him( when Tai was born)his mom was sooo happy and said she would die for Tai, and do anything for Tai. His brother said that love is when two brains are almost connected, or when you look at someone, and you feel like you want to kiss them and make a family of your own. This was really educational and I recommend that you hear it. ( I think this helps people learn about what love is and I think you should listen to it; 😜) it is really fun to hear Tai with all of his good questions getting answered! Every time I hear Tai ask a question, I want to hear him ask another one!
The Podcast You Never Knew You Needed <3
Tai Asks Why is a truly delightful listen. It brings me straight back to the school yard and gently capturing salamanders with my friends, to playing in the woods and looking under rocks, to watching shows like Bill Nye and Kratt's Creatures that made me think about the world with wonder instead of cynicism. All wrapped up in beautiful music keys and spot-on editing! I hope this podcast continues to grow, it's truly amazing and a unique perspective that we grown ups ALL need more of in our lives!
Tai, I sure hope you continue to be your inquisitive, unique self! Never stop asking Why! :D
