Our panel of “non-experts” joins us to discuss The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of the week’s news. Today, we’re joined by Houston Chronicle columnist Lisa Falkenberg, conservative writer and political analyst Vlad Davidiuk, and attorney and community education advocate Monica Richart.

The Evolution of Video Game Music

We present an excerpt from a recent episode of the Classical Classroom podcast, in which Houston Public Media’s Dacia Clay and Joshua Zinn, and Lesley Sabol from the Houston Symphony, discuss the evolution of video game music, in advance of the symphony’s July 23rd performance called Distant Worlds, which features music from the Final Fantasy video game series.

Houston Matters begins at noon.
