History Slam

Using and Managing Water

In one of our recent editions of the History Slam, we looked into the way in which water has been managed in western society. In this episode, I talk with Professor Jeremy Schmidt about his new book Water: Abundance, Scarcity, and Security in the Age of Humanity. We talk about the origins of western water management, the exportation of that structure around the world, and the ways in which water has become a commodity. We also talk about individual efforts to challenge that structure and ensuring access to clean water for everyone. You can find the full post here.
