The Story

History builds the present. Where we are today is a result of where we have been. Yet, some of the stories that got us here have remained in the shadows. And the true stories of the people and inventions that have built our world are often lost to time. Our only hope for building a better future is to truly understand what got us to the present. From the famous, to the infamous, to the never heard of, these are the unknown backstories of people who have changed the world. In Season 8, award-winning actor Alec Baldwin uncovers the little known backstories of veterans who have built companies, products, and brands that have changed the way we live.
