This Case is Nuts

I will be honest, I have never given any thought to the possibility of nuts being at the center of some of the biggest heists in the country.

The more you know.

Nut Jobs: Cracking California's Strangest $10 Million Dollar Heist not only focuses on the thefts in question -- multi-million dollar crimes involving almonds, pistachios, and other nuts grown in California -- but also describes the "food chain" which creates the possibility for such grand thefts to be possible. Fennell travels all over talking to the farmers, truck drivers, security personnel, nutritionists, and other industry professionals to reveal how the farming industry works, the shipping industry works, and examines the increase in the cost of the nuts in question which explains why such thefts have become lucrative business. By the end of the program, the listener not only understands the how and the why of the heists, but also their own place in the creation of the retail environment.

A fascinating series of interviews and explorations.
