This week, we discuss how low oil prices are starting to impact state oil and gas regulators. We take a closer look at the city’s convention bureau suing the folks behind Space City Comic Con for the use of “Space City” in its name, claiming trademark infringement. And we discuss the travel website Thrillist declaring Houston the worst designed city in America.

This week’s panel of non-experts includes:

  • Houston Chronicle writer and Wait, Wait…Don't Tell Me! panelist Kyrie O'Connor;
  • Texas Leftist blogger Wayne Ashley;
  • Russ Capper, founder of The BusinessMakers.com and The Energy Makers.com video shows.
