But Why?: Why Do We Poop And Fart?

How does your body make poop?

How many germs are in an ounce of poop? Why do people fart and why are farts stinky? Look, everybody does it, so today we’re going to tackle one of the areas kids seem to find fascinating: why and how we poop! Plus, we get some help from Chicago public radio station WBEZ’s Curious City to learn about what happens after you flush the toilet.

 

But Why is a show led by you, kids!

You ask the questions and we find the answers. It’s a big interesting world out there. On But Why, we tackle topics large and small, about nature, words, even the end of the world.
