This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes joins Trey Graham and guests Barrie Hardymon and Mike Katzif for a lengthy, winding discussion about the iconic road movie — from classics like Easy Rider, Thelma and Louise, It Happened One Night and Planes Trains and Automobiles, to newer films such as Jeff Who Lives At Home, Broken Flowers, Away We Go, Almost Famous, Little Miss Sunshine, Stardust and so many more. Then a short quiz about summer blockbusters at the box office. All that plus What's Making Us Happy this week.
