Episode 294 of 627 episodes

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Trey Graham and Glen Weldon talk about all things Superbowl (well, aside from the game). They'll discuss the commercials they loved and hated, Beyonce's halftime show and the blackout. And, ahead of Valentine's Day, they'll talk about romance in pop culture and what they find actually romantic. Favorite examples come from 'The Simpsons,' 'Modern Family,' Johnny Cash and the comic 'Strangers in Paradise.'All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week.
