On Friday’s Houston Matters: Last month (Dec. 19, 2017), a pothole the size of a couch opened up on U.S. 59, causing a seven-vehicle accident and major traffic delays. How does that happen? We learn about the science behind the formation of such large-scale holes on streets and highways. Then, we discuss the state of efforts to reduce potholes in the city. 

Also this hour: We discuss The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of this week’s news. And we learn about a health care concept growing in popularity: concierge medicine. We revisit our conversation with area physician Dr. John Eichelberger about what led him to establish a concierge practice.
