At this time, in Episode 3 of Drought Week, we take a journey by the American Southwest to Las Vegas, all the way down to Arizona’s Sonoran Desert and thru California’s Mojave Desert. We converse to a social scientist, a folklorist and a politician about their efforts to know the vegetation and animals affected by this historic drought. We’ll give attention to three iconic vegetation: Joshua timber. Saguaro cactuses. And, nicely, garden grass.

After that, pistol shooter Alexis Lagan describes the self-discipline of her sport and the way she got here to symbolize the US on the Tokyo Olympics.

Host: Gustavo Arellano

Friends: Nevada state Assemblymember Howard Watts III, College of Arizona anthropologist Maribel Alvarez, College of Arizona analysis social scientist David Yetman, L.A. Instances columnist Steve Lopez and pistol shooter Alexis Lagan
