    Short, plain, balding, neither soldier nor orator, low on charisma and high on intelligence, Madison cared more about achieving results than taking the credit. To reach his lifelong goal of a self-governing constitutional republic, he blended his talents with those of key partners. It was Madison who led the drive for the Constitutional Convention and pressed for an effective new government as his patron George Washington lent the effort legitimacy.

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.
