Investigative 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.
