We’ve finally reached the backdoor pilot for Chauncey’s spinoff show. But in the meantime, let’s just talk about Mad Men again on the Mad Men Men podcast! This week, we’re enjoying ribs with all the familiar faces at Sterling Cooper this afternoon in our recap of Episode 6 of Season 2 of Mad Men, also known as “Maidenform.” Don’t ask Pete to give you a plot synopsis of the movie you want to watch. Don is a bit hot and bothered this Memorial Day. Betty makes a new friend! Duck solidifies his status as the opposite of a “very good boy.” And the listeners can keep their imaginations. We’ll take their podcast subscriptions.
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.
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 the Cinemaholics podcast), and Michael Overhulse (The Original “Negroupie” and inventor of dogs interrupting podcast conversations).
We’ll be back next week to discuss Season 2 Episode 7, titled “The Gold Violin.” Subscribe to Mad Men Men on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or wherever else podcasts are, ahem, advertised.
