On this week's Pop Culture Happy Hour, we start off with a quick discussion of a few Emmy highlights, and then we move into a discussion of some things we like — or, in Stephen's case, things we are against. Which is, in Stephen's case, "everything."

Beloved icons? Against. Famous D.C. tourist attractions? Against. The act of reading? Well, that answer is more complicated. And he'll explain why he wants you to sit right down and write him an email — right now.

Meanwhile, we discuss the surprisingly good season of Project Runway that's currently underway, how we felt about last weekend's Emmy Awards, a new movie Trey is very fond of, and Glen's current favorite podcast (other than, of course, this one).

Thanks to Stephen Thompson, Trey Graham, Glen Weldon, and our invaluable producer Mike Katzif — who, I should mention, did amazing work this week editing our bitterness and fighting down to the point where we will not actually be e-mailbombed by angry bespectacled time-traveling carnies. (Don't ask.)
