On Friday’s Houston Matters: We've heard a lot this week about an "inverted yield curve" and what it means in the bond market, as a potential harbinger of a recession. We talk with Patrick Jankowski of the Greater Houston Partnership about what exactly it means, as well as the economic indicators that will help us assess the present and potential future of Greater Houston's economy.

Also this hour: We discuss how media organizations should handle online interactions with their audiences. And, the Houston Matters panel of non-experts weighs in on stories from the week's news and decides if they're good, bad, or ugly.

Plus, Houston Public Media’s Unwrap Your Candies Now co-host Catherine Lu talks with Kathryn McNiel, CEO of Theater District Houston, about the upcoming Theater District Open House.
