In Please Explain, we set aside time every Friday afternoon to get to the bottom of one complex issue. We'll back up and review the basic facts and principles of complicated issues across a broad range of topics — history, politics, science, you name it.
Please Explain is all about muscles! Find out how they function, how to strengthen them, and how they can break down. Dr. E. Todd Schroeder teaches clinical exercise physiology at the University of Southern California.
