Today, we’re launching Post Script, an animated series dedicated to taking a closer look at what humans have done to shape the world. Every month this summer, we’ll release an episode that unpacks the unintended consequences and unexpected results of inventions, laws and bright ideas that have taken an abrupt turn from their original design.

Our first installment features a whole lot of shaking.
