When you think talk radio in Houston, tune your brain in to Houston Matters instead of all that right-wing rabble on the AM dial. Every weekday at noon, host Craig Cohen and his well-informed guests undertake an always thoughtful, sometimes provocative consideration of all things Houston, balancing topical affairs with regular features like "The Good, the Bad & the Ugly" Friday news roundup. Some of the best discussion anywhere of the Memorial Day 2015 floods, the city's ongoing budget crunch and upcoming mayoral election, local LGBT concerns, and the myriad transportation issues Houstonians confront on a daily basis has come from this program. But it's not all serious; you might catch a segment about a visiting author, new theater production or gardening advice, too. They even talk a fair amount of sports.
