From time to time, we invite the heads of Houston institutions to join us to discuss some of the challenges and opportunities they’re facing, and the role they play in the region.

On this edition of Houston Matters, we welcome Renu Khator, the Chancellor of the University of Houston System and President of UH, and David Leebron, the President of Rice University.

Also this hour: A lot can happen in a week. Some of it good, some of it bad, some of it downright ugly. Each Friday, when faced with intriguing developments in the week’s news, we turn to our rotating panel of “non-experts” to parse The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of it all. Today, Houston Chronicle writer Kyrie O’Connor, Texas Leftist blogger Wayne Ashley, and Business Makers Radio Show founder and co-host Russ Capper discuss developments in oil and gas, the NFL owners relocation meeting in Houston Tuesday, and Gov. Abbott’s call for a U.S. Constitutional Convention.

Plus: Comedian Paula Poundstone performs in Houston tonight (Jan. 15, 2016) at the Wortham Theatre Center. In honor of her latest trip to Houston, we bring you an encore of a conversation we had with Paula prior to her last visit here in June. It was an unusual chat, with an auspicious goal: we only asked questions no one had ever asked Paula before.

Houston Matters offers a free daily, downloadable podcast here, on iTunes, Stitcher and various other podcasting apps.
