For most of us, the internet is virtual, made of Instagram posts, emails and YouTube videos. And, access to the vital utility isn’t guaranteed across the world. Glad You Asked host Cleo Abram wants to know: What is the internet actually made of? And, how does it work? Answering that question involves discovering how internet cables are laid in the sea, if 5G is really the future, and how balloons in the stratosphere are helping people connect.

I like the concept and content. But the way it was delivered. I mean, do I really gotta see them flirting with each other?

Explained was perfect.

As a school teacher I’m always looking for high quality, engaging content. You guys are amazing. Thank you for making such valuable content that I can use with my students.

If you’re looking for ideas... A video on digital footprints would be really interesting (and useful for kids to see). It’s amazing the stuff, good and bad, that our youth post online... and the unintended outcomes that result. Thanks!

This video would of been easier to focus on information being delivered, if in between the facts, she didn’t stop to make such corny jokes, embellished reactions
