Monkey Pox -- Gun Violence -- Off Broadway "Titanique"

We speak with the Houston Health Department about the rise of Monkeypox in the community. Monkeypox is a rare disease caused by infection with the monkeypox virus. Monkeypox virus belongs to the Orthopoxvirus genus in the family Poxviridae. The Orthopoxvirus genus also includes variola virus (which causes smallpox), vaccinia virus (used in the smallpox vaccine), and cowpox virus. Monkeypox is not related to chickenpox.

GUEST: Janine White

We speak with Aimee Mobley Turney with the League of Women Voters anti-gun violence committee. This is part of the movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence. They work to educate regarding stronger gun laws.

GUESTS: Aimee Mobley Turney

Finally, we speak with former Houstonian Tye Blue about his show "Titanique".  When the music of Céline Dion makes sweet Canadian love with the eleven-time Oscar®-winning film Titanic, you get TITANIQUE, a musical celebration that turns one of the greatest love stories of all time into a hysterical and joyful slay-fest.

Want to find out what really happened to Jack and Rose on that fateful night?

The story begins when Céline Dion hijacks a Titanic Museum tour and enchants the audience with her totally wild take, recharting the course of Titanic’s beloved moments and characters with her iconic song catalog.

Guest: Tye Blue
