Houston Matters is taking a bit of a, well, unplanned but necessary break this week, as we take some extra precautions related to COVID-19, and ensure that our entire production team and facilities are safe. We will be back with our usual live programs starting this coming Monday, Dec. 7.

However, we thought you might enjoy hearing a few conversations this week – some discussions you might have missed from earlier this year. Today, we offer up this chat, from the “before times” — all the way back in February, when we were in studio with author Mark Lardas, talking about his book Vanished Houston Landmarks, which focuses on – like it sounds – some locations key to Houston's history that – we know this is a shock – we tore down! Enjoy the conversation.
