On Friday’s show: We preview Monday’s planned launch of the Artemis 1 mission, a NASA rocket carrying the unmanned Orion capsule that will eventually carry humans back to the moon.

Also this hour: We dig into this week's announcement of President Biden's student loan forgiveness program and what it mean for Houstonians.

Then, we continue our conversations about lessons learned five years after Hurricane Harvey with one final lesson to impart: It will happen again. So we all better be ready.
