Everything you ever wanted to know about water, but were afraid to ask

droughtInvestigative journalist Abrahm Lustgarten joins us in studio to walk us through everything you never knew was wrong about how we manage water. We discuss federal crop subsidies, use-it-or-lose-it water rights, and why the former director of the agency that built our biggest dams thinks at least one of them should be torn down. Plus: followup reports on everything from coal to rent control, and a look at the upcoming Jewish Film Festival.
