What We Discuss with Vince Beiser:

  • Sand is at the core of our daily lives, used to make concrete, glass, asphalt, silicon chips in laptops, and smartphones.
  • Usable sand is a finite, endangered resource and desert sand doesn't work for construction -- in fact, Dubai imports sand from Australia.
  • There's a black market for sand, and there are sand pirates -- it's a resource over which people literally die.
  • Nearly 70% of sand on Earth is quartz (one of the most common minerals on earth), and the cycle to create new sand takes 200 million years.
  • And much more...
