Ok so
Baddeley added the episodic buffer to the working memory model in 2002(I guess you know about this... It's just a model of how we process memories).

Simply, think of it like the messenger or bridge going BETWEEN the other sub-systems

for example it is where information in the working memory interacts with information in long term memory (eg. relating information you are processing to a previous memory)

this sounds similar to the central executive, but is different because the CE DIRECTS ATTENTION to a sub system which needs it, without actually linking them together
