On Monday’s Houston Matters: Some pro-business groups in Texas say ending DACA could cost the Lone Star State's economy billions of dollars. The coalition filed a court briefing over the weekend, and an attorney representing the group explains their concerns.

Then, starting next week, you can download plans for 3D-printable firearms. This comes after a court settlement between an Austin-based man and the federal government. We talk with Cody Wilson, who fought the government over blocking his online tutorials for making a 3D printable pistol.

Also this hour: We continue Houston Public Media's series Stories from the Storm with a conversation between a teacher who invited a student's family to move in with her while the family's Harvey-flooded home was repaired.

Then, we learn more about NPR’s collaborative series of stories on heat and why places are getting hotter in general. And we discuss developments in Houston sports with Jeff Balke, who writes for Houston Press and Houstonia Magazine.

We offer a free daily, downloadable podcast here, on iTunes, Stitcher and various other podcasting apps.
