This week we’re gawking at another episode of Mad Men that we found in Mike’s office. Don’t worry, we remembered to take our shoes off before breaking in. That’s right, it’s time for another episode of the Mad Men Men podcast, which is beautiful in every way, except we can’t make TV shows. We of course recap Episode 7 of Season 2 of Mad Men, titled “The Gold Violin.” Sal is making some spaghetti, and Kitty might be there, too. Ken strikes out with Jane, but it’s not over yet. Jimmy finally makes his move. And Don should be careful not to get too used to that new car smell.
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 8, titled “A Night to Remember.” Subscribe to Mad Men Men on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or wherever else podcasts are, ahem, advertised.
