Pop Culture Happy Hour in Chicago
April 12, 2017
8 PM - 10 PM
NPR’s Pop Culture Happy Hour is hitting the road and stopping in Chicago! In partnership with WBEZ as a part of the Podcast Passport Series, Pop Culture Happy Hour will take the stage for a live show at Harris Theatre on April 12. The first Midwest show in the podcast’s history will feature host Linda Holmes, panelists Stephen Thompson and Glen Weldon as well as special VIPs, including Sam Sanders, formerly of the NPR Politics Podcast, and W. Kamau Bell, critically acclaimed sociopolitical comedian and host of Emmy Award-nominated CNN docu-series, United Shades of America.
Pop Culture Happy Hour is a lively chat about books, movies, music, television, comics and pretty much anything else that strikes a nerve, all in a weekly roundtable from NPR. Features "Monkey See" blogger Linda Holmes, panelists Stephen Thompson and Glen Weldon, and an occasionally rowdy cast of characters.
