The story of how history shaped a country. HOW THE STATES GOT THEIR SHAPES explores how the borders of the United States evolved and continue to change in response to religion, transportation, communication, politics, culture clashes and even Mother Nature. Local experts and everyday folks lead host Brian Unger to insights about some of America's most baffling questions. How are flying fish threatening to re-draw the shape of Illinois? What does the use of cell phones by Pennsylvania's Amish have to do with the shape of their state? How is the phrase sold down the river linked to the shape of what might be the 51st state? Why did the invention of air conditioning change how America picks its Presidents? Unger uncovers the answers, hidden in the map. This is no textbook-style documentary series, each episode finds quirky and fun facts to inform and educate, the comedic style will appeal perfectly to both older and younger consumers, from students to history buffs.Host Brian Unger is well known for his irreverent You Tube online news programme The Young Turks which is the biggest show of its type in the World.
