Hurry up and finish heating up your milk and processing your daddy issues like you’re in a play, it’s time to talk about Mad Men again! That’s right, we’re back this week to kick of Season 3 of Mad Men with “Out of Town,” and boy do we get to see a couple old boys hanging out, out of town. It’s a big Sal and Don episode is what we’re saying, but wait, there’s more. Pete Campbell and Ken Cosgrove butt heads over becoming head of accounts. Sally takes up a new profession that has her pregnant mother questioning her orientation. Speaking of which, Sal’s air condition isn’t working, and he is far too hot for that to be the case!
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.
