We know how you all had it in your heads. Someone would see our podcast and say, “get me that podcaster!” Well, I’m sorry things didn’t work out that way. That’s right, it’s time for another episode of Mad Men Men! This week on the podcast, we discuss “Flight 1,” which is the second episode of Season 2. Drugs and racism rear their heads at an office work party. A flight nosedives, and Pete won’t be laughing for long. Peggy visits her family and gets more than she bargained for. And Don really just isn’t any good at Pinochle!
In case this is your first time digging into Mad Men Men, our 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.
Mad Men was created by Matthew Weiner and aired on AMC from 2007 to 2015. The show stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Robert Morse, and many more. The opening instrumental theme heard at the beginning of this podcast is “A Beautiful Mine” by RJD2. Podcast illustration is by Jon Negroni. The podcast is hosted by Jon Negroni (Film Editor of InBetweenDrafts), Will Ashton (cohost of Cinemaholics podcast), and Michael Overhulse (The Original “Negroupie.”)
We’ll be back next week to discuss Season 2 Episode 3, titled “The Benefactor.” Subscribe to Mad Men Men on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or wherever else podcasts are, ahem, advertised.
