On Friday’s Houston Matters: We talk with a journalist in Southeast Asia who's been following the case of William Nguyen, a Houston man who was detained in Vietnam last month and convicted and deported. Nguyen now is on his way to the U.S.A. Lawmakers are praising the outcome.

Then, technology develops at a rapid pace these days. For digital natives like Millennials and Generation Z, these advancements might feel somewhat routine... but what about those older generations who didn't grow up with all this advanced technology? We find out how much of a disadvantage being computer literate is these days and how are schools integrating technology and making it accessible to both students and teachers.

Also this hour: When faced with intriguing developments in the week's news, we turn to a rotating panel of "non-experts" to parse The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly of it all.

Then, News 88.7 catches up with Tour de France cyclist Lawson Craddock, a Houston cyclist who gained attention after he crashed during the first stage of the famed cycling race, and wound up badly injured. Craddock tells us what happened next and who he’s donating money to for each stage of the Tour de France he completes.
