On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: We examine the results of the midterm election with our political pundits Brandon Rottinghaus and Renée Cross.

Also this hour: We revisit our conversation with Sports Illustrated's Ben Reiter about his book Astroball: The New Way to Win It All, which chronicles how the Astros built their World Series-winning team.

Plus, our group of food writers discusses their favorite places to get vegetarian and vegan cuisine in the latest installment of The Full Menu.

And we learn how a collection of hand-painted postcards from a soldier fighting in World War I made their way from the battlefield in Europe all the way to Houston — and now into a new book called Postcards from the Trenches: A German Soldier's Testimony of the Great War.
