Pop Culture Happy Hour: An Exploration Of Strange Creatures

June 8th, 2012

Episode 258 of 627 episodes

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes talks with Stephen Thompson, Glen Weldon and Trey Graham about all different kinds of aliens — how they differ, how dangerous they are, and what we're really talking about when we talk about them. From Prometheus and the Alien franchise and District 9 to Marvin the Martian, Star Wars and even Alf. Then, the gang talks about some examples of things they like outside the usual realms of tastes. All that plus, What's Making Us Happy.
