There's no stopping him now! John Wants Answers is an award-winning public access TV show that airs live on KMVT and is later rebroadcast on YouTube for your viewing pleasure. Maybe pleasure is an exaggeration. We probably should have just said "for your viewing."



Twitter

Tweet John questions live on the air at Twitter.com/JohnWantsAnswer. There's no "s" at the end because "s" stands for "suck." The "s" is actually missing because Twitter only allows 15 characters in a name. John made the executive decision that "JohnWantsAnswer" sounds better than "ohnWantsAnswers."


John A. Vink is the founder of John Wants Answers and makes the magic happen in every episode. In his day job, John is the Head of Macintosh Desktop Engineering for Nest Labs. He's also the founder of a weekly dinner club that many Silicon Valley geeks and industry luminaries attend. (OK only one industry lumianry attends on a semi-regular basis. Other lluminaries have come once but never come back again). John hoped and dreamed of one day producing a public access TV show of such outstanding caliber that he will win a WAVE Award. Those hopes and dreams came true in October 2012 with the win of 2 WAVE awards. John really likes to win awards and always wants to add another trophy to his vast, predominately bowling, trophy collection.


Keith Stattenfield is a regular co-host, guest and expert on John Wants Answers. Keith's stellar qualifications to be an expert include but are not limited to that he is a news junkie, history buff and philosophy major. Occasionally Keith segues from fact to fiction so at the top of each episode John feels obligated to list all of the non-factual statements Keith made in the previous month's episode. If you want to see Keith lie, not live, watch his KMVT public access show "Keith Explains" where he sits in a chair and humorously explains random topics.
