Pet Peeves Banner - MHagertyEvery few months, we give you the opportunity to vent. It could be something about Houston — like the traffic or the weather. It could be something about your life. It could be something you just wished was a little bit different. It’s your pet peeve, that one thing that sticks in your craw, that you just have to vent about, that makes your life in Houston just a little bit less than it could be.

Today is another one of those days! Share with the rest of Greater Houston that one thing about your life here that you wish you could change. That one thing that just raises your blood pressure a little, or takes some wind out of your sails. Channel your inner Grampa Simpson, and let it out. (E-mail your Houstonian pet peeves now at talk@houstonmatters.org).

Joining us for this quarterly moan session: Texas Monthly senior editor John Nova Lomax and Houston Chronicle “Gray Matters” contributor Cort McMurray.

Astros Dominate in Interleague Play

The Houston Astros had a good week, taking four of five interleague games against their old NL Central rival St. Louis Cardinals and Cincinnati Reds. Now 70 games into the season, the Astros are hovering near .500. What will it take in the 92 games remaining to climb into playoff contention? We ask Jeff Balke, who joins us each Monday to discuss developments in Houston sports.

Houston Matters offers a free daily, downloadable podcast here, on iTunes, Stitcher and various other podcasting apps.
