In every episode of the cafemadrid podcast Explained to children today, a group of friends take a trip to the Isle 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, protect species habitats, listen to each other and more.
In Today, Explained to Kids: It’s electric!, a magical ride in a theme park on the Island of Explained demonstrates the damage done by fossil fuels and why renewable energy may be the best way to power the future.
