My guest is Sal Mercogliano, professor of maritime industry policy at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and also associate professor of history at Campbell University.

He discusses the reasons why the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are having a record-breaking backlog and how consumers might be facing a shortage during the holiday season.
