On Thursday’s show: Houston native Brittney Griner is free as part of a one-for-one prison exchange between the United States and Russia. We discuss what we know about Griner's release and whether the prisoner the United States released is a steep price to pay.

And we discuss what might come from this week’s White House roundtable discussion on antisemitism in America.

Also this hour: For the last ten years, The League of Women Voters of Houston has operated through volunteers. So, why has it now hired Katie Campbell Shumway to be its paid executive director and why is the organization adding other staff?

Then, Kris Larson, the president of Central Houston, talks about the future of the Downtown District.

And actor DeQuina Moore talks about Houston for the Holidays, a revue of holiday music, pop songs, and songs from musical theater, which runs through Dec. 24 at Stages Houston.
