On Friday’s Houston Matters: An Instagram post about a confederate rally in Houston is cited in special counsel Robert Mueller's report as the "earliest evidence" of Russian influence in political rallies that happened across the United States. We learn more.

And, tomorrow marks nine years since the Deepwater Horizon disaster. We revisit our 2015 conversation with a filmmaker behind a documentary detailing the human toll of the spill.

Also this hour: We often hear that Houston is the model for what cities of the future will look like – with multiple urban centers and a diverse workforce. But former Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett begs to differ. In his book, The Next American City, he explains why mid-sized cities like OKC, Indianapolis, and Des Moines are the cities of the future. He’ll discuss that topic at a Houston event Monday night.

Plus, from a classical music performance on the border, to being snubbed by the Muppets, our "non-experts" discuss The Good, Bad, and Ugly of the news.

And a children's book tells the story of Sam Houston State University through the eyes of the numerous chickens that live on campus.
