In this week's DJ Sessions, we spoke with KCRW's Raul Campos about "southern fried soul" from Texas and a dance duo from Los Angeles.
California is entering its third year of drought. That water shortage was a big topic in Governor Jerry Brown’s State of the State Address this week.
“Right now it is imperative that we do everything possible to mitigate the effects of the drought,” he said. “I’ve convened an interagency drought task force and declared a state of emergency. … We need everyone in every part of the state to conserve water.”
He said it’s what California must do to “get through this drought and get ready for the next one.”
Brad Rippey, an agriculture meteorologist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, joins Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to discuss how the drought is affecting California and the U.S. as a whole.
Throughout the week, Here & Now is looking at the impact a raise in the minimum wage would have on states, the federal government and workers.
