Houston Matters

Full Show: Gun Violence Study, Energy Outlook, And The Evolution Of…Evolution (Feb. 7, 2019)

On Thursday’s Houston Matters: A new study about gun violence. The 2019 energy industry forecast. The city’s best new restaurants. And the evolution of…well…evolution.

On Thursday’s Houston Matters: A new study from UTMB in Galveston says access to firearms — not mental health — is a stronger indicator of gun violence. Seems pretty obvious, right? But researchers say they want this to change the politically charged conversation around guns and gun violence.

Also this hour: In its annual energy outlook, the Energy Information Administration projects the United States will become a net energy exporter starting sometime next year, with continued growth in natural gas exports. We examine what that means for Greater Houston’s energy industry.

Plus, we bring you the second part of our special edition of The Full Menu discussing the best new restaurants in the area.

And we learn how much science has built on the theories of Charles Darwin since the publication of his historic work, On the Origin of the Species.

We offer a daily podcast here, on iTunes, Stitcher and other podcasting apps.
