Today's episode is an introduction to a CPR News podcast called Parched. Hosted by climate reporter Michael Elizabeth Sakas, it's about how we can continue to live in the American southwest as it dries out. A two decade drought is sapping the Colorado River and other water supplies. But there are things all of us who live in the region can do to control how much this drought changes our lives and landscapes.
