Love it!!!

Hi Today Explained to Kids producers!!
I really love your show but can you make more? I cannot listen to your other podcast because of bad words, and I really love this concept. I also heard someone say a Netflix series? What is that? What is the title? Thank you for taking the time to read this. 🙏
