At some point in their journey, 90% of the world's goods travel by ship. Ordering something on Amazon may be simple, but getting to your front door is anything but. It's a topic that Christopher Mims, technology columnist for The Wall Street Journal, covers in his book Arriving Today: From Factory to Front Door – Why Everything Has Changed About How and What We Buy.

In this episode producer Ricky Mulvey talks with Mims about his book, covering topics including: - The roots of the microchip shortage - Why Uber had a difficult time disrupting the trucking industry. - What it’s like to work in an Amazon fulfillment center - How to explain the metaverse to your mom
