On Thursday’s show: We discuss the implications of Harris County’s potential lawsuit against the state over the latest audit of its elections.

Also this hour: As more businesses seek to reimburse employees for travel undertaken to get access to an abortion in another state, we explore the potential for additional state laws designed to stop them.

Then, we consider why the concept of air conditioning in Texas prisons remains controversial with Keri Blakinger of The Marshall Project.

And we take a tour of downtown to learn the stories behind the city's skyline.
