On Monday’s Houston Matters: New video obtained by the Houston Chronicle sheds further light on the strife within the HISD board. Reporter Jacob Carpenter tells us what the video reveals about the board’s dysfunction. Then, News 88.7's Laura Isensee examines how those issues tie into a state investigation of the board.

Also this hour: Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher is now a member of the committee that presides over NASA and other major scientific governmental agencies. We talk with her about what she hopes to accomplish as a member of the committee in 2019 and she answers your questions.

Plus, we get an update on efforts to address Houston's stray animal population, and Jeff Balke updates us on Houston sports.
