Freight All Kinds is a curiosity show presented by FreightWaves concerning the movement of a variety of unique freight types. From carnival rides to cadavers and all cargo in between. Hosted by Tim Dooner.
College football, poetry in motion, masses of men, giants of the gridiron rushing gear at 40 yards in 4.4 seconds, but before that equipment arrives at the field, it’s moved by big rigs rolling on big iron.
These are the games we play, and this is how we get to play them. On today’s freight all kinds, we’re talking college football. Ready break!
Frac sand is the key ingredient in the hydraulic fracturing process, in which oil and gas drillers pump frac sand and other materials into wells to break up shale rock, through which natural gas and petroleum will flow more easily. So easily, it has helped propel the US towards energy independance and insultation from global volitality. What’s helped drill that home is the process known as fracking. So shale to the king, baby. On today’s freight all kind we’re talking frac sand.
In the term Freight All Kinds, the all is all inclusive and that includes illegal freight. On today’s episode we’re talking Crystal Meth, Aunt Crissy, Tina, Crank, Speed, Shards, Ice, Go, Whizz, Tweak, dope, or uppers. No matter what you call it, we’re getting into the dirty business of smuggling Crystal as we’re breaking down breaking bad down under.
Crank your curiosity up to 11 because on this episode of Freight All Kinds we cover how concert stages tour from arena to arena. FreightWaves managing editor, Mark Solomon, joins Dooner as they discuss his article "Rock, Roll and the Road: How Trucker Guys and Gals Bring the Music"
