Just like happy hour down at the local watering hole, NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast brings together a gang of lively, talkative and occasionally rowdy regulars for a freewheeling discussion of books, movies, music, TV, comics and whatever else strikes a nerve. For their first-ever Midwestern show, host Linda Holmes and panelists Stephen Thompson and Glen Weldon are bringing the podcast to Chicago's Harris Theater for Music and Dance. Special guests pulling up a chair for this roundtable chat include Sam Sanders, formerly of the NPR Politics Podcast, and comedian W. Kamau Bell, who hosts CNN's Emmy-nominated docuseries United Shades of America.
