On this episode of Slate’s podcast about work, host Adam Davidson talks with Larry Lieberman, president of New York Customs Brokers.

Lieberman explains how customs brokers work with importers to clear shipments through JFK International Airport and Port Newark Container Terminal.* His middle-man role (which he chalks up to sales and “putting out fires”) helps everything from toys to crab meat make its way into the country.

He also describes how the industry has changed since his grandfather got into the business during the Prohibition era—and since computers transformed global trade.
