On Friday’s Houston Matters: NASA is announcing its first crews who will fly on commercial spacecraft. We have details from the announcement at Johnson Space Center.

Also this hour: We look back at the Great Houston Flood of 1935 and how it changed our city. It’s the second installment of Hurricane Season, a new podcast from of News 88.7’s Andrew Schneider, looking back at some of the biggest storms that have shaped Greater Houston.

Then, from Texas schools not requesting voter registration forms for their students (as required by law), to a man allegedly trying to rob a Whataburger with a pair of metal tongs, our rotating panel of “non-experts” discusses The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly of the week’s news.

Plus, we talk with a Rice University professor who’s been studying the volcanic eruption at Kilauea. And we learn about this year’s Houston International Jazz Festival, which is highlighting women in jazz.
