On Monday’s show: There are now seven separate wildfires making up the Eastland Complex wildfires near Abilene. We get an update on efforts to contain them and discuss air quality and just how much of a health threat that smoke from those wildfires was that blew southeast here to Houston on Friday.

Also this hour: Uber's head of cities and transportation policy, Shin-pei Tsay, discusses how to develop sustainable and inclusive transportation in Houston. She speaks during the next Kinder Institute Forum, a free webinar on March 23.

Then, veterinarian Dr. Lori Teller answers your pet care questions.

And the UH Cougars are headed to the Sweet 16, the Houston Texans traded quarterback Deshaun Watson to Cleveland, and Carlos Correa found a new team. Jeff Balke updates us on those and other developments in Houston sports.
