And the examples they cite provide compelling evidence that the hand of Providence has indeed preserved the United States of America on multiple occasions.

So where did freedom come from, and how are we fortunate enough to experience it in our day?

In its path is Sanctaphrax - a magnificent city built on a floating rock and tethered to the land by a massive chain. Sailing over the Edge and into the maelstrom itself, Twig - a young sky pirate captain - is the only Edgelander to learn of the approaching danger. But the perilous voyage destroys his sky ship, hurling his crew far into - and beyond - the Deepwoods, and robbing Twig of all memory.

    [Contains explicit content] If you think about it, Texas and Florida really just go together. They're in the south, but they sure ain't "the South." They both enjoy guns and chaos. And they both contain some of the strangest juxtapositions in the country. In this episode of Sounds Like America, host Michelle Buteau takes you on a rich, wild ride through these two eccentric states - stopping for weird ducks, Disney World, cicada horror shows, and of course, a football game led by a coach with a voice like a chainsaw.
