On Thursday’s show: Harris County failed to finish the election count on time — a claim the elections administrator denies. So, what’s going on, who’s to blame, and what does it mean for the November general election?

Then we discuss the failed negotiations between Memorial Hermann and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas and what this means for patients.

Also this hour: Sanjay Ramabhadran, the newly appointed chair of the Metro board, talks about his new role and discusses issues related to public transit in Greater Houston.

Then, we learn how climate change is affecting farming and agriculture in Greater Houston and across Texas.

And we remember Houston blues musician and band leader Milton Hopkins, who passed away last week at age 88.
