Maps distort our world. They elongate some areas and squish others. They emphasize one place at the expense of another. Even the very nature that north is up and south is down, is a myth perpetuated by the humble map. So how did we end up with maps that are so dang wrong all the time? In today's episode, we break down the history of maps, the most famous map, the Mercator, and a few other popular world maps and how each distorts the world. And why they kind of have to!
