What stood out for you - the driver's ed classes, the literal punches thrown, "Cynthia!" or Don fixing the sink? Regardless, remember to always, always, always check for your gum.  Enjoy!

Heinz dinner, a cancer scare, the Rolling Stones, and Peggy reluctantly hires Michael Ginsberg. "Tea Leaves" was directed by Jon Hamm, but we don't hold that...

Dan and Roberta dive into Season 5 - officially - with our conversation on A Little Kiss, Part One. We debated viewing them as one episode and then splitting our discussion into two podcasts, but this made more sense, and we're both so glad we did it this way, as they are quite distinct from one another. Next week we have a great sit-down with Jennifer Getzinger who directed, among other classic Mad Men episodes, both of these - and this greatly informed our view of the pair. So next week,...

Butthurt Betty lashes out once again and Don Draper makes the big gesture - pissing everyone off but Peggy and Megan, who seizes the Jerry Maguire of it all. Well, Faye's not pissed either.

Directed by the late Lynn Shelton, Hands and Knees is a weird and twisty Mad Men episode - and that is really saying something. Dan and Roberta break it all down, in their weird and twisty way.  Also YES Roberta says "She's the father of his children" and Dan didn't notice but you all did. What of it?

Settle in, Dan and Roberta discuss the arguably epic Mad Men episode "The Summer Man," in which Don takes a crack at sobriety. Well no, not exactly. More like non-drunkenness. And swimming. And journaling. Also Joan gets some unwelcome fan art, and Peggy steps up.  Anyway, happy birthday Gene.  Check us out on Patreon - make a 1-time donation, or subscribe for early episode drops, extra discussions, and opportunities to appear on our end of season They Joined It.

You did it. You helped us tell the story of "The Suitcase," arguably the greatest single episode of television - certainly on your top ten list of Mad Men episodes, at the very least. Dan and Roberta pick up exactly where they left off, but this time we have lots of listener input, including friends of the show Deborah Lipp, Lisa M. Lilly, and Josh Weinstein.  Ali / Liston II on YouTube  ___________________________________________________________________________________________ Support us...
