Nerd Culture And The Return Of Regrettable TV

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Trey Graham and Glen Weldon talk about Noel Murray's A.V. Club piece on nerds and autism in pop culture. They'll discuss TV shows and movies that feature autistic characters, some more openly than others. They'll discuss the changing perception of nerds and their rising cool factor. Finally, the long-awaited return of the Regrettable Television Pop Quiz. All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week.
