Podcast: Our Masters of Disasters break down the fierce drought
Today we launch Drought Week, a five-part series looking at how water shortages across the West are profoundly changing life. We’ll swoop around, from Oregon to the Sonoran Desert, from cities to national parks, from Joshua trees to lawns.
To start Drought Week, it’s only natural — pardon the pun — that we take the bigger view first with our Masters of Disasters, the L.A. Times reporters who focus on natural calamities. So get your five-gallon buckets and put them next to you when you shower, ’cause things are serious right now.
Then stick around to hear from super-heavyweight boxer Richard Torrez Jr., a Californian representing the United States in the Tokyo Olympics, and his father and coach, Richard Torrez Sr.
Host: Gustavo Arellano
Guests: L.A. Times earthquake and COVID-19 reporter Rong-Gong Lin II, L.A. Times coastal reporter Rosanna Xia, L.A. Times wildfire reporter Alex Wigglesworth, boxer Richard Torrez Jr., boxing coach Richard Torrez Sr.
