On Friday’s Houston Matters: Mayor Sylvester Turner's handling of a development deal went unaddressed at a special council meeting yesterday that focused on the housing department's budget. News 88.7's Jen Rice fills us in on what happened.

Also this hour: With the process of redrawing Texas Congressional maps underway, we examine a different way of handling it altogether.

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

And we preview a conversation about how – and what – the spaces we inhabit teach us about race. It’s the topic of this week’s edition of I See U.
