We had so much fun last week that we found ourselves conducting another non-alcoholic Pop Culture Happy Hour covering some of our favorite and least favorite things.

This week, Trey Graham, Glen Weldon, Stephen Thompson and I started with a discussion of the richly discuss-able Inception — as spoiler-free as possible, since Trey hadn't even seen it — and the critical response, and ultimately why reviews exist at all. I challenged them once more with the Regrettable Television Pop Quiz, and then we chatted about some very miscellaneous miscellany, from comics to commercials to — I know it seems shocking — sports.

Honestly, if you haven't ever heard Glen discuss Wonder Woman, it's really very important that you do. You will never see her in quite the same way.

You can listen to it here, you can download it, or you can subscribe to the Culturetopia podcast, where you'll find us as a special edition. (Yes, that means we are now on iTunes, for those who asked that question.) Culturetopia also comes with many other delicious NPR arts stories and so forth, so dive right in and subscribe.
