Your Call: Mapping the drought: From Brazil to California
One the May 8th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll discuss media coverage of California’s drought. Governor Brown’s mandatory water conservation plans have attracted national attention. How are the media reporting on California’s water crisis and water policies? We’ll also talk about the historic drought in Brazil. We’ll be joined by freelance journalist Matt Weiser, San Jose Mercury’s Lisa Krieger and independent journalist Mauricio Savarese joins us from São Paulo, Brazil. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
