Take a break from your passive exercise regime, it’s time for another episode of Mad Men Men. This week, we’re unpacking our suitcases for “Indian summer,” the 11th episode of Season 1. Peggy’s first pitch goes down to the wire(s). Don’s affair with Rachel has Betty all hot and bothered. Roger tries makeup for the first time, and is Peggy finally learning to take her work home with her?
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.

The show stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Robert Morse, and many more.
