Also this hour: We talk with the News 88.7 reporters involved in Houston Public Media’s series and podcast Below the Waterlines: Houston After Hurricane Harvey to discover what surprised them in the process of their reporting.

Then, we discuss the role community college education plays in creating the future workforce of Greater Houston and why advocates say community colleges deserve more funding.
