And we’re back. To do the twist! The twist to a new website that is. In the time since we finished recording season 1, we switched over to InBetweenDrafts, so here we are! Let’s get started. This week on the podcast, we discuss “For Those Who Think Young,” which is the first episode of Season 2. Valentine’s Day sweeps the Sterling Cooper staff and their families. Don’s meditating on a poetic emergency. Peggy has a line or two about a line or two. And someone needs to explain diabetes to Pete Campbell.
In case this is your first time digging into Mad Men Men, this podcast tackles 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 2, titled “Flight 1.” Subscribe to Mad Men Men on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or wherever else podcasts are, ahem, advertised.
