Families of Prisoners, Reality TV Culture, and Water Rules

The Emmy nominations were announced this morning; we look at Emmy campaigns and the reality TV category. Next, we get a preview of this Sunday’s World Cup final between Germany and Argentina with the comedy-sports duo the Sklar Brothers. Then, California’s drought continues to drag on. We look at two water-related stories: A new lawsuit against the Department of Water and Power’s union and a state proposal for new water restrictions. Finally, host Madeleine Brand stepped outside the studio recently to meet with a group of Venice high school students with family members in prison.
