    [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.

    The Shinkolobwe Mine in the Belgian Congo was described by a 1943 Manhattan Project intelligence report as the "most important deposit of uranium yet discovered in the world". So long as the United States remained in control of this mine and its supply, it had a world monopoly on the primary material needed to build an atomic bomb. The uranium from this mine was used to build the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

Susan Williams investigates the manners and morals of that era by looking at its eating customs and cooking methods. As she reveals, genteel dining became an increasingly important means of achieving social stability during a period when Americans were facing significant changes on a variety of fronts - social, cultural, intellectual, technological, and demographic.
