It's Too Darn Hot, Board Games, And More (REBROADCAST)

June 29th, 2012

Episode 261 of 585 episodes

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR's Stephen Thompson, Glen Weldon and Trey Graham are joined again by Barrie Hardymon to ask exactly how hot would it have to be outside before you'd see a movie like 'The Smurfs' just for the air-conditioning? Are you a Boggle person or a Scrabble person? Does the Game of Life reveal the tragic dark side of the American Dream? All that plus 'What's Making Us Happy This Week?' including Captain America, Slings and Arrows and more. (Note: This episode original aired on July 28, 2011.)
