In  the 1600’s, Galileo discovered that the Earth was not the center of the universe. Until  then, we thought everything revolved around us.

There are still people who believe the universe revolves around New Orleans. It’s Caitlin Cain’s job to convince anyone who does not believe it, that it’s true.
