Jingle Madness And Oscar Gold

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Trey Graham and Glen Weldon round up the Oscars telecast, from Daniel Day Lewis' speech and Jennifer Lawrence's tumble to Seth McFarlane's jokes. Next, they declare an "earworm warm" and take a close look at the commercial jingle. They'll go through a few of their favorites from past to present and ask why the jingle has gone the way of the dodo in recent years. All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week, including a recent Mark Harris essay on leading men and an unusual Taylor Swift remix.
