On Monday’s Houston Matters: NPR's John Burnett tells us about the effect Harvey had on the Houston Ship Channel.

Also this hour: Just a couple of weeks ago, the Texas House adopted new sexual harassment policies. Lawmakers say one of the new rules provides better protection against retaliation. So, what are the protections in place to protect employees from sexual harassment — and do they go far enough? We learn the latest on what's happening at the Texas Legislature with Jolie McCullough, reporter with The Texas Tribune. Then, we turn to a pair of HR experts to discuss the protections in place to protect complainants.

Then: Houston Matters goes to the dogs...and cats. To help us sort through your pet care questions we're joined by Dr. Lori Teller from the Meyerland Animal Clinic. And we discuss the latest developments in Houston sports with Jeff Balke, who writes for Houston Press and Houstonia Magazine.
