    “The problem starts for Houston almost the moment that it’s founded.” That’s how Richard Fausset, who covers the South for The New York Times, describes the founding of Houston, which was built on the edge of a swampy bayou. On today’s show, he describes the uniquely American success story of Houston as a boomtown, and how Harvey’s destruction recasts the narrative.
