On Friday’s show: COVID-19 cases at Texas school districts, former Labor Secretary Robert Reich on the growing economic inequity in America, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week’s news, and a lifeline for the LBGTQ+ community during the pandemic.

On Friday’s Houston Matters: We talk to education reporter Jacob Carpenter about reports of positive COVID-19 cases at area school districts as more campuses open for face-to-face instruction.

Also this hour: Michael Hagerty talks to former Labor Secretary Robert Reich, who says the real conflict in America is between forces larger than Republicans versus Democrats. That’s the topic of his latest book, The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It, which he discusses with Houston audiences in a livestream event with The Progressive Forum on Oct. 1.

Plus, we break down The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week's news.

And we learn how the Montrose Center is providing a lifeline to Houston’s LGBTQ+ community during the pandemic.
