About

Pop Culture Happy Hour is a twice-weekly entertainment and pop culture podcast from NPR featuring lively discussions about books, movies, music, television, comics, nostalgia, happy making, and pretty much anything else that strikes a nerve. The weekly roundtable is hosted by Linda Holmes, writer and editor of NPR’s pop culture blog Monkey See. Regular panelists include NPR Music editor Stephen Thompson and writer and comic book expert Glen Wheldon. Together they explore pop-culture memories, favorites, peeves, and possibly shameful obsessions.

About the Host

Linda Holmes

Linda Holmes, pop culture correspondent for NPR and the host of Pop Culture Happy Hour, is also writer and editor of NPR’s entertainment and pop-culture blog, Monkey See. She began her professional life as an attorney. In time, however, her affection for writing, popular culture, and the online universe eclipsed her legal ambitions. She shoved her law degree in the back of the closet, gave its living room space to DVD sets of The Wire, and never looked back. Holmes was a writer and editor at Television Without Pity, where she recapped several hundred hours of programming — including both High School Musical movies, for which she did not receive hazard pay. Since 2003, she has been a contributor to MSNBC.com, where she has written about books, movies, television and pop-culture miscellany. Holmes’ work has also appeared on Vulture, in TV Guide and in many, many legal documents.
