On Friday’s Houston Matters: Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner says he’s joining other mayors to ask the federal government to stop separating undocumented families at the border. We learn more about what that means. And we remember the connections Anthony Bourdain made with Houston’s food scene.

Also this hour: How do faith and science intersect? That was the focus of a recent discussion held at Rice University. And, it’s a familiar question we’ve discussed on the show several times in the past, including in 2014 when former NPR religion correspondent Barbara Bradley Hagerty spoke with Maggie Martin about an experience that led her to investigate the relationship between science and spirituality. We revisit that conversation today.

Then, our panel of non-experts discusses the The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly of the week’s news. And we learn about a local artist who is reinterpreting artwork stolen by the Nazis during World War II.
