Thirst Gap

This performance has passed. Please see some of our upcoming shows below.

The Colorado River is in trouble. The critical waterway supports 40 million people across seven southwestern U.S. states, two Mexican states and 30 tribal nations. Climate change is shrinking the river's water supply, leaving the region's leaders with the task of reducing demand in cities and on farms.

Those tough decisions are the focus of KUNC's new podcast: Thirst Gap: Learning to Live With Less On The Colorado River. Join us for an evening with the host, KUNC editor and reporter Luke Runyon, for a behind-the-scenes look at the more than two years of reporting that went into the project. Luke will share stories from the field and shed new light on the problems and potential solutions to help the region find balance between water supply and demand.
