Get your comics out. The Mad Men Men podcast is back this week with even more problematic relationships to dig into. We recap Episode 10 of Season 2 of Mad Men, titled “The Inheritance,” and wow does that title carry a lot of weight in this episode where Harry Crane gets his very own office baby shower. And like Hildy, Mike Overhulse showed up to the podcast with some, ahem, alcohol in his system. Don and Betty have a reunion of sorts. Pete adopts a new strategy on his family life. Betty’s father whips out a true puzzle for Don to tackle. Paul is a social justice warrior?! And well if it isn’t Glen Bishop, continuing to be the heart and soul of America.
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 11, titled “The Jet Set.” Subscribe to Mad Men Men on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or wherever else podcasts are, ahem, advertised.
