Pop Culture Happy Hour

The Retail And Science Edition

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Trey Graham and Glen Weldon talk about brick and mortar retail in the age of online consumption. Whither the record store, whither the record store jerk? Leading into Free Comic Book Day, they'll discuss how the role of the brick and mortar store has changed in the face of online competition and what we may lose, culturally, without physical spaces to purchase pop culture products. Next, they'll discuss pop culture depictions of science — what shows get it right and what shows get it very wrong. All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week.
