Water management is a serious issue - one that affects almost everything in the world of agriculture. How can you insure your crops against drought as a farmer? What happens when the rain won't fall? What are some new irrigation technologies that are helping keep crops healthy? Today's episode of What Doesn't Kill You is all about water - as host Katy Keiffer is joined by Claire O'Connor, the Agricultural Water Policy Analyst in the NRDC Santa Monica Office. She focuses on designing and implementing solutions to water challenges that are good for both farmers and people who eat the food that farmers grow. Tune in and wrap your head around some serious water issues on What Doesn't Kill You. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

"The best insurance policy farmers have is their soil. Healthy soil can hold more water and absorb more water. That's where we need to be encouraging farmers to look at how they're managing their risk." [08:00]

"Unless we get serious about managing our water - it could be a big problem not only for farmers but all of us who like fruits and vegetables in this country." [21:00]

"Meat should be expensive......when somebody's eating BBQ spare ribs 6 nights a week, that's a no no." [25:00]

"The nose to tail movement is a romantic movement but the bigger more powerful movement is grounding up the meat - allowing people to have 31 pound bags of ground lamb in the freezer." [26:00]

"We live in a culture where mediocrity is accepted just because the people are well intentioned." [36:00]

"People who argue for ag-gag laws are un-American." [38:00]
