This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, we talk about the new James Franco film '127 Hours' and what might and might not keep us from seeing it. I also ask the group to help me figure out what on earth we're going to do to really get rid of zombies once and for all, and I have to say — I think my idea is pretty promising.

Then, it's a round of What's Making Us Happy This Week, in which Stephen can't stop thinking of things that make him happy (you, collectively, are involved, by the way), Trey plays us some beautiful music, Glen has yet another funny podcast to share, and I admit that I am not built for fancy games.

Please join us for this installment, and if you haven't already, just subscribe to the podcast to receive our pop-culture chats weekly.
