(ELI5) Explain like I’m 5 the Talmud

Hi guys so I’m a guy with 0 knowledge of Judaism, I understand the Torah and the Tanakh thing but I’m in doubt of what is the Talmud, I went to ask a friend of mine who left Judaism the answer he gave me left me with more questions than answers

There’s the “Written Torah” that is in The Bible and the “Oral Torah” that is written in the Talmud, in the Talmud there’s the center text that is the “Oral Torah” and on the sides there’s rabbis yapping about the center text, and other rabbis yapping about the other rabbis yapping about the center text.

Idk to what extent he studied Judaism because he left very early but I came here to ask about it for those who have knowledge.
