This week's episode kicks off with a discussion of my upcoming trip to London and offers an opportunity for me to get a lot of advice from the panel about what to do while I'm there. It also offers Stephen an opportunity to mercilessly make fun of my tendency to get lost, but THAT'S FINE.

After that, we move on to a discussion meant to lift us out of our typical fixation on happiness and joy — we try to find the meanest fictional characters we can think of (excluding killers and so forth). From teen angst to a sitcom that may surprise you, we're digging into the very depths of heartlessness to find the nastiness in our souls.

And then, of course, it's a round of What's Making Us Happy This Week, because all that meanness can't last forever.

As always, you can follow us on Twitter — follow me, Stephen, Glen, Trey and Mike. Or, by the wonder if social media, catch up with us on Facebook.

Oh, and here's the Peeps Show. (PEEPS Show. What?)
