We like to think of podcasting as the backbone of America. Especially when it comes to Mad Men! In “New Amsterdam,” we follow way more of Pete (Dykeman?) Campbell’s life than usual, as he conflicts with Don over a pitch with Bethlehem Steel. And at home, Betty gets some alone time with Glen Bishop, and it goes about as well as no one expected.
In case this is your first time digging into Mad Men Men, 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. You can find our previous episodes here.
Mad Men was created by Matthew Weiner and aired on AMC from 2007 to 2015.
