On Friday’s Houston Matters: A new study says that, while Houstonians are mostly accepting of Muslim Americans, there's still a lot of misunderstanding. We learn more from researcher Dr. Robert McKenzie.

Also this hour: Next month, more than a hundred Catholic bishops are expected to meet in Rome for a gathering dedicated to the sexual abuse crisis. Rice University’s Dr. Anastasiya Zavyalova has been studying one particular archdioceses for more than a decade. She explains why releasing the names of priests involved in abuse cases can help the church gain back some credibility.

Then, from dueling MLK Day parades to the New York Times calling Houston one of its 52 Places To Go In 2019, our non-experts discuss The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week’s news.

And comedian Paula Poundstone answers some random questions from other Houston Matters interviews over the years.
