SECONDHAND Travels in the New Global Garage Sale

by | Read by Daniel Henning

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Daniel Henning capably narrates journalist Adam Minter's fascinating account of the industry of reuse, which examines businesses that run the gamut from local thrift stores to Japanese vintage shops to used-goods enterprises in Ghana. What happens to our unwanted, discarded, or donated stuff? What's the next stop for that drop-off at Goodwill? As Minter pulls aside the curtain on the global secondhand industry, listeners embark on a wide-ranging adventure, learning who profits (and who doesn't) from the afterlife of our cast-off belongings. Easy on the ear, Henning sounds interested and educational; he entertains by highlighting the material presented without calling unnecessary attention to his delivery. The result is a lively production that will stick with listeners, inviting them to consider--and maybe reconsider--their choices as consumers.
