Episode 187 of 585 episodes

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes returns to the host chair to give a quick recap of TCA. Then the rest of the PCHH gang — Stephen Thompson, Glen Weldon and Mike Katzif — discuss some unsung heroes in pop culture, from the straight man in a comedy duo to film editors to the Washington Generals. All that plus more Pop Culture Blind Spots and What's Making Us Happy this week — the Green Bay Packers, the return of a comedy podcast, Curb Your Enthusiasm and a classic 80s show.
