'The New Black' And Secret Names

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR's Stephen Thompson, Trey Graham, Glen Weldon and producer Jess Gitner talk about the Netflix original series 'Orange Is The New Black.' They'll discuss Taylor Schilling's performance as Piper and the incredibly strong cast of supporting characters. They'll also discus the show's portrayal of sexuality and race.  Next, following J.K. Rowling's admittance that she wrote a book as Robert Galbraith, they talk about pseudonyms. What separates a pseudonym from a disguise? All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week.
