On Wednesday’s Houston Matters: A local psychologist offers context and advice on dealing with trauma after events like the tragedy last weekend at the Astroworld music festival.

Also this hour: We discuss the latest news in our weekly political roundup.

Then, a 13-year-old boy in the foster care system talks about his desire to be adopted. And we learn about the need for older kids like him (ages 11-17) to be adopted — and what it does for their future — from representatives of the Houston organization The Way Home Adoption.

And we talk about the Houston restaurants that made Texas Monthly’s latest list of The 50 Best BBQ Joints.
