Explained to children today is back for a second season. In each episode of this cafemadrid podcast, a group of friends takes a trip to the Island of Explained. Kids (and adults) come along to explore the magical island and meet its whimsical inhabitants, while tackling some of the world’s biggest questions. This summer we answer questions about how we can improve the future through the way we eat, care for our environment, listen to each other and more.
In Today, Explained to Kids: Vegetable Feast, an invitation to a vegan party sends producers Kiarra and Izii to the island, where a giant who once ate humans explains why he switched to a plant-based diet — and why that diet can benefit humans, too.
