Pop Culture Happy Hour: A Barrie Special Episode, Rehashed!

Filed by KOSU News in Art & Life.
March 9, 2012

With Linda at the SXSW Interactive conference to talk tweets (and other such things), and with Thompson running around chickenlike getting ready to go down for the music part of the festival, we’ve decided to have a week or two off.

So please enjoy this, one of two PCHH classics that we’ve chosen from the archive — if you’re new to the podcast, it’s probably new to you! If not, please have a listen again anyway, and tell us how much we’ve improved/degenerated since we recorded this one.

Specifically, this was our first Barrie Special Episode — the one we made as a salute to our new-mom colleague Barrie Hardymon, with a whole raft of recommendations about the pop-culture essentials you’ll want to stockpile if you’re thinking of raising a little nerd. Enjoy!

And though we didn’t do a podcast this week, we’re still occasionally to be found on Facebook. And, of course, on the Twitter: Linda, Stephen, Glen, Mike and little ol’ me. [Copyright 2012 National Public Radio]
