In this episode Matt Crawford speaks with author Dr. John Harris about his book The Last Slave Ships. This is the story of merchants based in the U.S still sending hundreds of illegal slave ships to the African coast from American ports decades after the international slave trade was outlawed. Harris tracks how the U.S government ignored and abetted this act and how the British, with the use of spies tried to stop it. An in depth and engrossing read that should be read by all.
