This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Trey Graham, Glen Weldon and guest Barrie Hardymontalk about the evolution of public grief. From the newspaper obit to the tweet, how have remembrances changed? We also delve into the extra materials that are included in books that we either like or don't like: epigraphs, acknowledgments, maps and more! All that, plus What's Making Us Happy this week.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
