This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour: A look at comedian Patton Oswalt's essay at Wired, called "Wake Up, Geek Culture. Time To Die." Linda, Stephen, Trey, Glen use Oswalt's argument as a jumping-off point to talk about how it is and isn't different now to be invested (and overinvested) in the culture you love, and ponder how what's been lost might be compensated for by what's been gained. Then Pop Culture New Year's Resolutions and Things Making Us Happy.
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. </div><div><br></div><div>An independent podcast from James Barr (@imjamesbarr) and Dan Hudson (@DanHudson).
