On Episode 2 of Mad Men Men, we return to Madison Avenue to discuss the second episode of Mad Men. We continue our conversation from last week about the show’s handling of sexism and out-of-place 60s references. Plus we start digging into the motivations behind Don Draper’s infidelity and romantic aspirations. In case you skipped the pilot, this podcast tackles 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.
