We love to live in the moment at Pop Culture Happy Hour, so this week, Stephen, Trey, Glen and I chat about our pop-culture fears — note that mine concerns a book that's probably being tracked down on eBay as we speak — whether they are sensible or not.

We also get into the little issue of homemade versus store-bought costumes, which leads to a broader debate about candy-distribution ethics. Finally, we all share something that's making us happy, which gives me an opportunity to show you some of the greatest, weirdest videos I have ever seen on YouTube.

So enjoy the podcast, subscribe to Culturetopia if you haven't already, and have a very happy and safe Halloween. And don't listen to any music by that artist who scares Glen. (Seriously, you will never guess. Never.)
