On Tuesday’s show: We discuss the slight drop this week in Houston’s absurdly hot temperatures.

Also this hour: Houstonian Gene Kranz spent decades at NASA. The longtime flight director during the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs led mission control during the moon landing and the "successful failure" of Apollo 13. Michael Hagerty has an extended conversation with Kranz, who lives in Dickinson, and has a new book out called Tough and Competent.
And the University of Houston's LGBTQ Resource Center closes this week. We discuss why, the center's legacy, and what resources will be available for LGBTQ students at UH going forward.
