This podcast was recorded during the 2023 WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Without the labor of the writers and actors currently on strike, the TV show being covered here wouldn’t exist.
We’re in the waiting room with a special guest this week! That’s right, we invited Mad Men aficionado Ben Crew to talk with us about Episode 5 of Season 3 of Mad Men, titled “The Fog.” Put another way, what if…this is our time? (To podcast).
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.
