Last week, we paid tribute to Sal Romano’s final appearance on Mad Men, so this week we had on Bryan Batt, the actor who plays Sal to talk about all things Mad Men! The best part might be the fact that Will had no idea Bryan was going to be on the show going in, so you get to hear his actual reaction to suddenly seeing Sal himself in the recording studio. Bryan answered all of our questions, even the silly ones, including his head canon for what Sal might’ve done in the universe of the show after Sterling Cooper, what he would like for a “Better Call Sal” spinoff, the possibility of a Mad Men revival, and plenty more.
In case this is your first time digging into Mad Men Men, our humble little baby podcast recaps Mad Men from the perspective of someone who hasn’t really watched the show, someone who went through it once a long time ago, and a superfan who watches excessively it instead of having a functional social life. You can find our conversations about the first season on our podcast feed, as we are now on a new website.
