Description:

“I Want to Know” is an interview style podcast that is all about curiosity and asking the unanswered questions in order to take an in-depth look at any given subject. An audible falling down the Google hole. It’s about all of those times you hear of something interesting and then you look up and you realize you forgot to take your hot pocket out of the microwave two hours ago. The topic for each episode could be just about anything: from talking to an expert on a ghost town to interviewing a WWII vet or maybe a survivor of a cult. Hosted by podcast veteran Greg Jones (The Charity Strike, Awkward Apocalypse), this show will become your inquisitive departure into audio wisdom.
