Your Skin; the mammoth of all human organs and the title of season 3, episode 8 of the Netflix + Vox docuseries, Explained. In an enthralling (at times perturbing) deep-dive into the skin, viewers get an up-close-and-personal view of our biological overcoat, evolved to serve as our greatest line of defense against infection and disease and an ecosystem upon which trillions of microscopic organisms cohabitate and thrive.
