This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Trey Graham, Stephen Thompson and Glen Weldon talk about the Emmy Awards. Homeland and Modern Family were big winners, but why did the night contain no real surprises? They also explore academia in the form of favorite pop-culture professors. They'll touch on teachers from 'The Simpsons,' 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and even Shakespeare plays. All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week.
