April 13th, 2012

Episode 250 of 627 episodes

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Glen Weldon and Trey Graham realize that because it's tax time, it's a good time to discuss the culture of the rich as portrayed in film, television and books — from the films of Whit Stillman and Wes Anderson to Arthur — both the original film with Dudley Moore and the recent remake. Then, a talk about the things in popular culture made "Just for Us" — opera, Jerry Maguire and Dr. Horrible. Plus, of course, What's Making Us Happy this week.
