On Friday’s show: We preview Saturday's runoff election that will determine who will be the next mayor of Houston. Several city council seats will be decided along with numerous other races.

And we learn about a climate change symposium this week at the University of Houston focused on carbon capture.

Also this hour: We look back at the film Terms of Endearment, released 40 years ago. The Oscar-winning movie was set in Houston and based on a book by Texas novelist Larry McMurtry.

Then, from Texans' views on electric cars, to the end of the Fairfield Lake State Park saga, we ask our panel of non-experts to weigh in on intriguing developments in the news on this week's edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

And we learn how growing up in La Porte shaped J.B. Sauceda into a storyteller who’s been named the next host of Texas Country Reporter.
