Maphead recounts Ken Jennings' lifelong love affair with geography and explores why maps have always been so fascinating to him and to fellow enthusiasts everywhere. Jennings takes listeners on a world tour of geogeeks, from the London Map Fair to the bowels of the Library of Congress to the computer programmers at Google Earth.
