Every day hundreds of thousands of shipping containers are processed in the busy ports of the coastal United States, coming from every corner of the globe. Most of the time they are inspected.

During the last days of quarantine in 2021, Dipygus traveled to the wet markets of San Luis Obispo, California. Two years later, the product of this illicit journey through the black market meat trade is made public.

Listener discretion is advised.
