Full Show: Election Day, and When Women Ruled the World (Nov. 6, 2018)

On Tuesday’s Houston Matters: We survey the scene on Election Day. A renowned Egyptologist tells us about a time when women ruled the world. We learn about a short film about a veteran’s experience with PTSD. And we learn about the new facility for The Menil Drawing Institute.


On Tuesday’s Houston Matters: Perhaps you’ve heard — it’s Election Day! We check in with some News 88.7 reporters and voters around the region to survey the scene as voters head to the polls. But then we provide you with another important service: the rest of the hour will be election free!

The rest of our election-free show includes: While the United States and many other countries have never had a female leader, some countries have — including the ancient Egyptians. Noted Egyptologist Dr. Kara Cooney talks about her book, When Women Ruled the World.

Then, we learn about a Houston short film called A Soldier’s Judgment, which aims to depict the challenges combat veterans face by depicting what one veteran sees in his head.

And we learn more about the new facility of The Menil Drawing Institute, which opened to the public this weekend.
