Pop Culture Happy Hour: Sex Comedies And Marshmallow Peeps

Filed by KOSU News in Art & Life.
April 6, 2012

On this week’s podcast, we decided to ruminate about teen sex comedies — in part because of spring break season, and perhaps in part because we’re all surrounded by discussions of American Reunion. We chat about the ebb and flow of teen comedy in general, the ways in which Superbad was and was not influential, and the relationship between teen comedies, sex comedies, and teen sex comedies. This also leads us down a strange path about what kinds of vaguely dirty movies we did and did not have access to as kids. (If you watched Midnight Cowboy at a surprisingly early age, there is something in this discussion for you!)

Our second topic is seasonal: Easter candy is all around us, whether you celebrate Easter or not. We allowed ourselves to be sucked into a surprisingly spirited (REALLY) debate about peeps, eggs of several kinds, the proper makings of an Easter basket, and more.

And finally, we chat about what’s making us happy this week. Glen is into a deconstruction of a song that’s on his mind, Trey has been to the theater again, I am pondering my relationship with an eminent TV writer, and Stephen still goes to concerts, but he just cannot stop reading books.

Follow us all on Twitter — me, Trey, Stephen, Glen and Mike — or find us on Facebook and hang out with the other PCHH listeners, who share with each other wonderful things both about and not about the show. [Copyright 2012 National Public Radio]
