Pop Culture Happy Hour: ‘Apes’ Spoilers, Insomnia Cures, And Owl Noises

This week, we kicked things off with a chat about Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, the trailer of which we were unimpressed by a few weeks ago. For some reason, our conversation was more spoilery than we usually are about movies, but since they didn’t call it Rise Or Possibly Fall Of The Planet Of The Apes, you have to admit you already knew some of it. But fair warning: from about the 3:00 mark to about the 18:00 mark, we talk in some detail about what happens in the movie. We’ll do better next time being obtuse.
In a segment ripped from the headlines of Stephen’s life (and, as it turns out, the lives of the rest of us), we talk about insomnia cures — listening to music, lulling ourselves with television, playing soothing sounds, and lots more.
Finally, it’s time for What’s Making Us Happy This Week, including a wedding shout-out that we were very excited to provide, podcast catch-ups, and revisiting an unsuccessful comedy show that seemingly launched a thousand successful comedy careers.
