Why would you deny yourself a new episode of Mad Men Men? That’s right, we’re back this week to discuss some problematic nomads with cool names (and accents). We discuss Episode 11 of Season 2 of Mad Men, titled “The Jet Set,” which has more than one meaning as it happens. This is one of the more controversial episodes of Mad Men, where some fans absolutely love it while others find it confounding. Where do we stand? Oops, never mind we just fell into the pool due to heat sickness. Also in this episode, Pete Dykeman Campbell finds some oranges. Roger makes an indecent proposal. Duck makes some moves on his sobriety. Peggy makes some moves too, but on the wrong boy. And is that Dick Whitman at the end of this episode?
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 12, titled “The Mountain King.” Subscribe to Mad Men Men on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or wherever else podcasts are, ahem, advertised.
