On Friday’s show: We learn about the recently passed Respect for Child Survivors Act, which aims to change the way child victims are treated during FBI investigations into human trafficking or child abuse claims.

Also this hour: We discuss how we Houstonians can think more about others and lead less selfish lives.

Then, from Carlos Correa’s contract odyssey, to an FAA snafu shutting down flights across the nation, we break down The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of the week.

And today is Friday the 13th. Why is that a thing? We talk with Shelby El Otmani, author of The Book of Superstitions, who explains the origins of some well-known superstitions throughout history and across cultures.
