Houston Matters

Full Show: Springtime Allergies, And Wes Anderson (March 23, 2018)

On Friday’s Houston Matters: We learn more about the interim superintendent appointed to lead HISD. Then, an area specialist answers questions about allergies. Plus, our non-experts discuss The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week’s news. And we revisit our 2014 conversation with filmmaker Wes Anderson.


On Friday’s Houston Matters: HISD's chief academic officer has been named the district’s new interim superintendent. The appointment of Grenita Lathan comes just a week before Richard Carranza leaves for New York City. Jacob Carpenter with the Houston Chronicle walks us through the latest with the district. Plus, we discuss how Houston students are participating in national demonstrations against gun violence this weekend.

Also this hour: Springtime is back in Houston, and that means allergies are too! The tree pollen count is very high (just in case you didn’t notice the neon yellow dust all over your car). So, we thought it would probably be a good time to check in with allergy specialist Dr. Dat Tran, from Innovative Allergy Clinic. We invite you to call in with any questions you might have about your allergies.

Then, our panel of non-experts discusses The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week's news. And we revisit our conversation with filmmaker and Houston native Wes Anderson as he prepares to release his new animated film, Isle of Dogs.
