New year, new girl. That’s right, the holidays are over, so it’s time we advertise our return from the beach with yet another episode of Mad Men Men. Or is it Mad Men Men Men because there’s three of us? Anyway, this week we’re drinking in Episode 5 of Season 2 of Mad Men, known by some as “The New Girl.” Don finally meets the one and only Tilden Katz. Joan has some new bling to show off. Pete’s memories of Pearl Harbor could be the ticket to him having kids. And is Peggy ever going to pay me back my $110?
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 5, titled “The New Girl.” Subscribe to Mad Men Men on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, or wherever else podcasts are, ahem, advertised.
