    Last night I listened to Fresh Air on NPR where Terry had Edward Humes on; promoting his new book "Door to Door." It was a fascinating insight on how our products get to us world-wide via shipping container.

    The short interview included things as mundane as the iPhone "home" button and coffee beans.

    Here is the link to the broadcast and a transcript: http://www.npr.org/2016/04/13/47407...he-magnificent-and-maddening-story-of-traffic.

    Cheers,

    Tim
