On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: We meet Armando E. Colombo, the new CEO of The Menninger Clinic, Houston’s nationally ranked psychiatric hospital.

Then, in the wake of recent mass shootings, some officials have said mental health is to blame, but some health officials disagree. We take a closer look.

Also this hour: We discuss this past weekend's mass shootings along with a breakdown of other developments in the news in the latest installment of our weekly political roundup.

Then, on this month's edition of The Full Menu, local food writers share some of the most exciting places participating in Houston Restaurant Weeks.

And astronomer James Wooten from the Houston Museum of Natural Science answers questions about space and viewing the night sky in Greater Houston.
