Dr. Stephen Klineberg, Rice Sociology Professor and founding director of Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research, unveils a new report today titled “Shared Prospects: Hispanics and the Future of Houston.”

The report examines the educational and economic experiences of different Hispanic communities in and around Houston, and explores the implications for their future, and the future of Houston as well. It draws on findings from 21 years of expanded Houston Area Surveys, which reached more than 4,800 U.S.-born Latinos and 4,200 Latino immigrants.

Dr. Klineberg will join us to share more about the report and its implications for all of us on this edition of Houston Matters.

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. On today’s panel: The Houston Chronicle’s Kyrie O’Connor, “Texas Leftist” blogger Wayne Ashley, and Texas Originals producer Paul Pendergraft. We’ll discuss the fracking ban in Denton, liquor sales in Old Town Tomball, the app-based paid ride service Lyft pausing operations in Houston amid new regulations, and a survey which reveals cavalier attitudes towards texting while driving.

Plus: A conversation with comedian W. Kamau Bell. Bell performs at Warehouse Live Sunday night.

Houston Matters starts at noon. Join us on air: 713-440-8870 or talk@houstonmatters.org.
