On Wednesday’s show: Are methane emissions leaking from oil and gas facilities in the Permian Basin worse than we thought? We take a look at some data.

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

Then, for the first time, two annual Houston events have joined forces to create The Houston Auto & Boat Show, the nation's largest event of its kind. The show begins today at NRG Center and runs through the weekend.

And we meet a man who helps refugees who’ve just arrived in Houston by preparing a special meal.
