On Thursday’s show: How the City of Houston is tackling an 11 percent increase in violent crime.

Also this hour: We learn how the pandemic might be affecting the social development and mental health of our children.

Then, in the latest installment of The Bigger Picture, we take a closer look at the new Netflix film The Forty-Year-Old Version, about a struggling New York playwright who suddenly decides to try her hand at a hip-hop career. We talk about the movie, and a local hip-hop and R&B artist shares the challenges he’s faced in his young musical career.

And The Drama Squad brings socially-distanced theatre to Houstonians’ backyards.
