A former dump site at the edge of the Pacific Ocean in Ft. Bragg, California, is part of the story in this edition of Radio Curious.

Captain Cass Forrington, creator and owner of the Glass Beach Museum, and the author of "Beaches Of Glass, a History & Tour of the Glass Beaches of Fort Bragg, California," is our guest. He is also a Master Mariner, holder of an unlimited Master’s Certificate, allowing him to be the captain of any size sea going vessel. He has many stories to tell.

Captain Cass and I sat on Glass Beach No. Two in Ft. Bragg, on a windy afternoon, June 2, 2012, with the waves lapping ten feet away. We began when I asked him to describe Glass Beach. But keep listening to hear his story about putting his hands in acid 40 years ago.

He recommends a book and a movie. The book is "The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology," by Ray Kurzweil.

And the movie is “What the Bleep Do We Know?”
