Mad Men, Madmen, And A Fond Farewell

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Glen Weldon and special guest Barrie Hardymon talk about the two-hour season opener of 'Mad Men.' They'll discuss how the show is changing as they move into the late Sixties and why they love Peggy. Next, they take a moment to bid the fondest of farewells to one of their pop-culture heroes, Roger Ebert. Finally, they tackle the topic of  the unreliable narrator. From classic novels to modern films, they'll talk about the unique delights of people who can't really be trusted to tell their own stories. All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week, with a surprise visit by Pop Culture Happy Hour's number one fan.
