Authenticity and a Quiz

March 21st, 2014

Episode 352 of 578 episodes

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson and Glen Weldon are joined by NPR Code Switch's Gene Demby to talk about authenticity. In light of President Obama appearing on Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis, how is authenticity used and why does it matter? Then, they'll take a quiz called Paint or Perp--can the gang correctly guess if the word is a Sherwin-Williams paint color or an episode of Law & Order: SVU? All that plus What's Making Us Happy this week.
