What to do with West Philly’s ‘house of horrors’
The Why

News comes at us hard and fast every day, and it’s hard to make sense of it all. The Why blends great news gathering with great storytelling. It’s a narrative-style news show about issues affecting the Philadelphia region. Hosts Shai Ben-Yaacov and Annette John-Hall pluck one story from the news cycle and explain why it’s happening, and why it matters. Through conversations with beat reporters and people in the know, The Why takes you on an audio journey that blends voices, sounds, and music. It’s not just news, it’s a story.

Listen Monday - Thursday at 5:45 p.m. on WHYY-FM or anytime wherever you listen to podcasts.
