Sex Comedies And Marshmallow Peeps (REBROADCAST)

March 8th, 2013

Episode 298 of 627 episodes

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, the the gang takes some time off due to a perfect storm of illness and SXSW preparation. Here's a favorite episode from last Spring in which NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes joins Glen Weldon, Trey Graham and Stephen Thompson to talk about the vitality (or not) of the teen sex comedy — from Fast Times at Ridgemont High and Porky's to American Pie and Superbad. Then the gang has a lively debate about Easter candy and the value of Peeps. All that, plus What's Making Us Happy this week.(Note: This episode original aired on April 6, 2012.)
