Today, Vox and Vox Media Studios with YouTube Originals Emmy-nominated series “Glad You Asked” returned with brand new episodes. These five new topical episodes examine the intersection between health and social issues more broadly. The first episode in the new installment - which raises the question, “Do I want kids?” - is now available to stream for free on the Vox YouTube channel, with new episodes dropping weekly. YouTube Premium subscribers have access to all five episodes beginning today.

“Glad You Asked” is an ensemble-led exploration of topics driven by our curiosity about the world around us. Using Vox’s signature explainer format, the next five episodes for season two examine a broad range of timely topics such as, Do I want kids?, Why can’t we sleep?, Is city noise making us sick?, Is therapy for everyone?, and How should doctors consider race?. Season two’s hosts Fabiola Cineas, Lee Adams, Cleo Abram, Joss Fong and Christophe Haubursin are back with the world’s foremost experts to offer an experiential journey that will empower audiences to better understand their world while demonstrating various social experiments.

The first five episodes of season two, which premiered earlier this year, investigated questions around racial justice and the impact of systemic racism in our communities and daily lives. Topics including implicit bias, how our neighborhoods determine our futures, race and A.I., education inequity and the impact of racism on our bodies, were all analyzed by the five hosts and experts. Season two, episodes one through five can be viewed on the Vox YouTube channel.
