On Friday’s Houston Matters: We take a closer look at HB 6 and SB 7 — two bills in the Texas Legislature that, if passed, would substantially change the process of voting in the state.

Also this hour: We discuss what elements of life with COVID-19 and our attitudes about it might linger beyond the pandemic.

Then we break down The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week.

And we revisit our conversation with actor Jeff Goldblum from 2019 when he was in town to perform with his jazz band, The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra. It was just announced Goldblum and the ensemble will be returning in early 2022 as a part of the upcoming season from Society for Performing Arts.
