Glad You Asked: How Does the Internet Work?

Joie Jacoby

Overview

From the minute we wake up to when our heads hit the pillow, we are all using the internet. Whether it's chatting to friends, shopping, working, or watching TV, the majority of our day-to-day activities involve the internet in some form.

Glad You Asked is a Vox and YouTube Originals docuseries that follows hosts and producers Cleo Abram, Alex Clark, Joss Fong, and Christophe Haubursin as they explore some of YouTube's most-searched and most interesting questions. In this episode, Abram discovers what the internet is made of, how it works, and how that contributes to differing levels of access around the world.

The process of how we share information is shaped by the physical architecture of how data travels. With an engaging and accessible style, Abrams explores the internet access challenges faced across the globe and talks to those who are trying to solve those problems.

"For most of us, the internet is virtual. It's made of Instagram posts and emails and Youtube videos. But it's also a physical thing."
