Explain It

Explain To Me is smart, honest, and enjoyable. It brilliantly balances both humor and insightful commentary on modern society and yet, it remains easy to listen to. The hosts and topics are as entertaining as they are engaging, and it’s an excellent replacement for talk radio on long drives (or really any time listening). Give them a listen and a subscribe!

Bex Goes There

It seems like there is no topic off limits with this podcast and that's a good thing! Each week you never know what you are going to get, but one thing is for sure, you are going to love Explain to Me!

Deconstructing Damsels ,

Culture and Camaraderie

Podcast offers more than commentary. There's a sense of community and humor with hosts and guests. Topics range from the local St. Louis music scene to Saturday morning cartoons to racism's impact on People of Color in the city.
