On Wednesday’s show: From the New Hampshire primary, to the Supreme Court's ruling against Texas on border authority, we discuss the latest developments in politics in our weekly roundup.

Also this hour: Writer and former Houston poet laureate Leslie Contreras Schwartz talks about her memoir, From the Womb of Sky and Earth, which is a lyrical exercise in coming to terms with the abuse she suffered growing up and transitioning to becoming a mother herself. She discusses the book at a Brazos Bookstore event tonight.

And this year's Oscar nominations are out. That comes on the heels of awards announced by the Houston Film Critics Society, and two of their film critics talk about their favorite movies of 2023.
