Of 'Dark Knight,' Summer Games And Such

July 27th, 2012

Episode 265 of 578 episodes

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Trey Graham, Glen Weldon and Stephen Thompson are joined one last time by producer Mike Katzif for a roundtable discussion about 'The Dark Knight Rises' — the last in Christopher Nolan's epic Batman trilogy, and one that sadly arrived with the tragic news of the shooting in Aurora, Colorado. Then, the gang looks toward the upcoming Summer Olympic Games in London and talk about what events or moments they're looking forward to. All that, plus What's Making us Happy this week.
