Mims, a WALL STREET JOURNAL tech columnist, follows a notional USB cable from Vietnam to a U.S. consumer's door, bringing in a wide range of topics along the way: container ships, ports, trucking, Amazon, FedEx, UPS, robots, "scientific management," and industrial AI, with a nod throughout to the impact of Covid. Fouhey brings intelligence and care to the many details and appropriate pacing, as well as energy, expressiveness, and a likable manner. Though his narration is clearly thoughtful, an occasional misapplied emphasis, as well as noticeable insertions of rerecorded segments, causes minor distraction now and then. But the smart, fact-filled text and generally engaging delivery still make for an enjoyable, even absorbing, program. W.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
