On Monday’s Houston Matters: The head of the CDC is in Houston today in connection with a Trump administration initiative to dramatically reduce the rate of new HIV infections through more effective distribution of preventative drugs. We learn why Harris County is considered a "hot spot" for new infections and what efforts already exist to reduce HIV.
Also this hour: Houston's summers can be oppressively hot, and that’s why most Houstonians crank up the A/C from June through September. So, we examine the role air conditioning played in shaping the Bayou City we know today.
Then, all this week, we mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing by hearing pioneers from the Apollo era in conversation with some of their modern-day counterparts in Houston Public Media's series Moonwalk. In the first installment, two astronauts and military men from different eras meet for the first time.
And we discuss developments in Houston sports with Jeff Balke.
