Houston Matters is a radio program airing weekdays at noon on Houston Public Media News 88.7 FM in Houston. During each hour, we’ll investigate the issues and ideas, people and places that make Houston…well…Houston! We’ll talk about current events, politics, education, health care, the environment, business, transportation, arts and culture, literature, sports and leisure. But we also hope that what we do each day on Houston Matters serves as the beginning of a conversation — one we hope you’ll continue here, at home, at work, with family, with friends and neighbors. We hope to introduce Houstonians to one another, to celebrate our diversity, and to engage one another through stories and conversations that demonstrate depth and context. Just the sort of thing you count on from public media.

Any Houstonian who wants to be aware should subscribe to this!

I'm a News 88.7 addict, and love that this airs at noon and at 7 pm. Wonderful to listen to Craig Cohen when I'm at work late. Thanks to this, people always turn to me to find out what's going on in the city since the local TV news are too sensationalist e.g. leprechaun spotted in Memorial Park (local news) vs. covering Poetry Slam Festival (according to this podcast).

It'd be great if Texas Standard and Houston Matters were broadcast back-to-back as a state then city theme, but I understand that Fresh Air is too popular to be bumped to a different slot.

CBS-345 ,

Finally a show that Houston worthy.

Cool show, hopefully it lasts for a while.
BBC world have your say was getting too big anyways.

Issues they discuss are a little scattered but hopefully they will have days dedicated to certain issues for e.g. Monday - markets/local economy, Tuesday- social, cultural, Wednesday- local and state politics, etc. you get the jist.
