On Friday’s Houston Matters: Texas Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn are among those voting today on Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court. It comes a day after an FBI report on allegations of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh. We consider whether today's vote — and the contentious debate over his nomination — could influence Greater Houston voters heading into the midterm election.

Also this hour: We learn about influential women from Houston's history ahead of a conference from The Houston History Alliance. Then, our rotating panel of "non-experts" breaks down The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly of the week’s news.

And writer Lance Scott Walker talks about his books on Houston rap.
