Houston Matters recently (Aug. 18, 2015) took a trip to the Energy Corridor to record a special edition of the show in front of a live audience at the Holiday Inn Houston West.

Crude oil prices are at a six year low, contributing to oil company layoffs and bankruptcies over the last year. And yet, the impact is not as dire for Houston today as it might once have been, because Houston is more diversified – as is the energy industry itself.

We discuss these transformations in Houston, in energy, and in the Energy Corridor, on this special edition of Houston Matters.

We brought together a group of journalists for a roundtable examining the energy industry. Stephen Klineberg joins us to discuss transformational changes in Houston, including in the Energy Corridor.

Also: we meet the General Manager of the Energy Corridor District, area foodies hit the stage with a special edition of The Full Menu, and an expanded panel of "non-experts" parse The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of recent news in the Energy Corridor. Plus: a performance from ComedySportz Houston!
