Big Ideas with Little Kids
This original series consists of world-renowned scientists attempting to break down complex theories to their most challenging class yet: a group of 7-year-olds.

Big Ideas with Little Kids premieres on Thursday, August 31st, with new episodes debuting weekly on Thursdays.
Inverse's Button Mashers profiles some of the greatest competitors in the world: professional eSports gamers. Hosted by comedian Zach Cherry (Spiderman: Homecoming, Broad City), each episode visits the home of a different elite gamer as we learn about their daily lives, training rituals, and gaming strategies. Gaming stars profiled include: Benita "bENITA" Novshadian, Visal "El TOWN" Mohanan, Alex "Khaos" Greenstein, Osama "Zag" Alkhalaileh, and Kayla "Faye" Murray.
