Just beneath the surfaces of everyday objects and events lie incomprehensibly complex systems that interlink our entire world. In this light-hearted and riveting new HISTORY® series, host Daniel Wilson, author of Where's My Jetpack? and How to Survive a Robot Uprising, travels the nation uncovering the hidden complexities of everything from power tools to running shoes. As he puts everyday life under the microscope, we can only shake our heads in amazement and enjoy the ride.
In the series premiere episode, GARBAGE, Daniel finds out what happens to the 102 tons of garbage each of us throws away in our lifetime.
Discover how New York City's daily mountain of trash becomes parkland and learn how cutting-edge recycling reduces the impact of our waste. Behold the marvel of a swirling vortex of plastic in the Pacific Ocean the size of California! Are we doing enough? Have we already done too much? You'll never look at GARBAGE the same way after this episode of THE WORKS.
