This podcast is worth your time! I’m rewatching along with Dan and Roberta and I find their conversations to be insightful and very entertaining. Their Patreon has great tidbits as well. Definitely check them out!

Ugh
Really wanted to like but Roberta is just exhausting. No idea why Dan puts up with the constant pedantic nitpicking and undermining.

The PERFECT Mad Men rewatch companion. Gives a lot of dimension to the show because of its really good analysis of each episode. Everytime I finish an episode of the show, I’m so excited to have « unlocked » a new episode of They Coined It

Fabulous look back at Mad Men from our Pandemic Era. I love discovering new ways (such as this podcast) to stay connected to the series and the characters. Their deep dive analysis is like dissecting great literature. The hosts reveal so many layers and levels to each episode as well as the...Read full review »

I love dissecting the layers upon layers of Mad Men, and I love the interviews. But man, is Dan annoying. Talks over people, misses really obvious plot points, and just gives off a subtle but constant sexist vibe. I’m frequently telling him to stop talking in my head…and yet he keeps talking.

I’d listened to Way Down In The Hole to take a deep dive into The Wire & Talking Sopranos for that show and had been looking for a quality Mad Men podcast. I’ve found it. Give this a try as it’s great.
Tommy Mas via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/30/22
Love the authentic and relaxed nature of the podcast! The hosts have great chemistry as well. Mad Men's willingness to tackle women's issues in a grounded and raw way is one of the reasons I love the show so much. Therefore, I really love that the hosts don't shy away from discussing...Read full review »

To preface I’m definitely an obsessive, have rewatched all the way through at least 10 times. Dan and Roberta are lively and do a good job of not just recapping but having some discussion of dialogue, themes in an episode, etc. I was hoping for something more in depth. There are other die hards...Read full review »

Great discussion between the hosts. I don't always agree with every take they have, but that makes it fun; it's better than listening to people parrot back to you everything you think. And I really appreciate it when I'm presented with a new take on something. They bring up ideas on...Read full review »

Never have been a fan of podcasts but this podcast is perfect for someone like me who comes back to mad men every couple of years just wanting to talk to someone about its intricacies. Dan and Roberta give enjoyable insight every mad men fan wants and the details I don’t won’t to work for. Love...Read full review »

Love this podcast and love mad men. I do wish the hosts were a little less combative toward each other sometimes their back and forth overtakes the analysis of the show and I feel like all they do is disagree and this takes away from the analysis
alimeade via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/24/21
Once I found this podcast I went back to the first episode and have listened to every one. Roberta and Dan are excellent hosts and I can’t wait for all the episodes still to come.

How can I listen in a row from the beginning without stopping and starting? And please Stay in one place near your mikes because sound varies wildly .

I wonder who coined the phrase ‘To coin a phrase’
llyoyd braun via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 11/12/21
Just discovered this podcast through Reddit and of course I need to re-watch every episode of the show again as I listen to each pod episode. Love that their analysis is a present day take on a show that’s now 10 years old. Roberta and Dan have a great dynamic and it definitely helps that...Read full review »

Dan and Roberta are so fun to listen too and so knowledgeable of this wonderful show that over a decade later still has us obsessed. Do yourself a favor and start a rewatch and listen along to They coined it!
miaflashbirdie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/20/21
Dan and Roberta (the hosts) are bright and insightful. I find the Peggy and Rachel characters uninteresting/predictable so the praise of them is a bit much (Rachel, in Season 1 and Peggy, In every Season). I do recommend this podcast to both new and re-watchers of Mad Men.
Charlene in San Fran via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/09/21
I found this pod during quarantine and have loved listening after rewatching an ep. I like the back and forth between the hosts. Each come equipped with different perspectives that make for a better show because so much of the MM show is open to interpretation. Keep going! :)
Layupgod via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/27/21
I love this podcast. Each episode of Mad Men is deconstructed and analysed, from the script and it’s nuances to the lipstick Betty wears to the talk of the future politicians of America and what makes them. I could listen to it all day long. I am a year late and have much to catch up on so...Read full review »
lesinbrenrford via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/13/21
What’s fun about this show is the hosts aren’t afraid to disagree, hash out different points of view, and in some cases have entirely different interpretations of the show. The varying perspectives and understandings of all that MM is puts this podcast in the tier above simple “we love this show...Read full review »
Joe "Ace" Adams via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/21
I’ve tried a variety of MM podcasts, and this is easily my favorite. Just the right level of recap vs analysis, with some brief show audio included. The pace is snappy, Roberta and Dan stay on topic. They also enjoy a good-humored ability to occasionally disagree or have alternative/new...Read full review »
Tarheelblue1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/20/21
I’m a fellow MM obsessive, now on my 3rd full series binge, and found Dan and Roberta’s gem of a podcast a month or so ago. It’s not a beat by beat recap pod, they touch on the deeper themes, the symbolism and all the layered subtleties that make up the best show ever made. Highly recommend to...Read full review »
CGT4444 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/05/21
…but their audio volume is so low, sometimes I can’t hear what Dan’s saying. Please turn it up! Roberta’s girlcrush on Melinda McGraw is easy to understand, and I get it. But her loathing of Abigail Spencer’s character and performance is tedious and unnecessary. I’ve lost count of how many...Read full review »

Ohhhh the life changing magic of discovering that other people want to sit and dissect Mad Men in as much detail as I do! 😍
MISSLC via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 07/16/21
A must listen for any Mad Men fan. I never miss an episode. Old and new fans of the show will love this podcast. Roberta and Dan are the best.
Sportsfanco via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/21
Roberta and Dan are so knowledgeable about the show. As someone who loves Mad Men, I really enjoy re-watching the episodes and finding little nuances that I never noticed before. Roberta & Dan discuss various aspects of the show and the characters, and it's great to hear their...Read full review »

A must for any serious MM fan.
brain714 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/14/21
Great conversation and their different perspectives compliment each other. I love Mad Men for those heart-wrenching moments and Roberta makes you want to reevaluate the entire scene while Dan points out some obscure connection to history/culture and you think “how didn’t I notice that?” And “wow...Read full review »

Authentic, passionate, challenging, and thought provoking. Makes me want to watch all over again!
Rylanderg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/26/21
Rewatching MM for 4th time. Looked at a few of these pods and this looks to be the best. Very high quality analysis, with real insight and humor. Love the warmth between the two hosts. The fact that she worked with Matt Zoller Seitz for Carousel, and he’s on the season review speaks volumes....Read full review »
G Wonkey via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/09/21
How was the premier of this show 14 years ago, now? That fact alone just blows my mind, as it seems like yesterday that I immediately dove in and instantly loved Mad Men. I am basically the same age as Don and Betty’s son, Bobby, and my dad commuted into town on the train to Grand Central with...Read full review »

Mad Men fans, this is JUST the podcast you’ve been looking for! I am so happy to have found Roberta
XtinaMae via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/21
I’m already big Mad Men re-watcher so I feel like I know the show in and out, but its a pleasure to hear these two intelligently debate and discuss the show to where I feel like I’m getting even more out of the original content. The pace and rapport of these hosts is pleasant and I’m finding...Read full review »
Jasmin193 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/29/21
I've watched and re-watched Mad Men more times than I can count, and occasionally I'll do a random search in Apple podcasts to see if anyone has even so much as devoted an episode recently to MM. Imagine my delight to find this. I initially assumed I would listen sort of...Read full review »

Not good at all

If you’re a mad men fan this is a great pod for you! Quit messing around and subscribe already
Fernoates via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/21
Great and thought-provoking discussions between the two hosts, but the inconstant sound quality some times makes it impossible to listen to.
HildyJ via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 02/12/21
My wife and I started rewatching MM from the beginning and I hunted around desperately for a podcast that would give me thematic insight, humorous banter, and behind the scenes Easter eggs for each episode. This is that podcast!
Kevin from Minneapolis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/12/21
Love this! Covers all; history, culture along with mad men characters and plots. The duo are very easy to listen to.
Qsgdjib48(:3674fhv via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/06/21
I don’t have anyone to discuss Mad Men with because I don’t personally know anyone who watches it. So it’s been a real pleasure to listen to two thoughtful, intelligent people discuss the episodes. My only critique is, Speak up! I have my volume turned all the way up on my headphones and...Read full review »
AshelinaRosita via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/26/21
This is a great exploration and analysis for anyone who likes or is interested in Mad Men, the hosts are extremely well informed and lovely to listen to.
AliMillerSwan via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/19/21
Nothing I love more than a great podcast about a show that's a favorite, but it's often hard for me to find one I like--you know, if you're going to listen to people talk about something that you yourself love to talk about, you better enjoy listening to them and not just want to jump...Read full review »

I am so delighted to have found this podcast. I started a rewatch this summer with my 16 year old daughter (her first viewing, my 2nd) and it has been so great to have this pod to listen to after each episode. It’s nice to be watching with my daughter, but there are deeper levels to the show...Read full review »
Illyria 2004 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/15/20
Dan and Roberta are a pleasure to listen to: Their individual perspectives, their expertise, their rapport, their senses of humor, their well of empathy and curiosity and disdain (where appropriate) for the characters’ inner worlds serve this deeply psychological show wonderfully and are a...Read full review »

Sally's Haunted Doll via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/10/20
Could not make it through even one podcast. Basically just telling what their personal 21st-century reactions were to the episodes while relating plot points, not really getting deeper into the history and culture embedded in the episodes, nor any of the psychological and philosophical strands...Read full review »

If you’ve never watched Mad Men, this is a great accompaniment to watching it for the first time (lucky you). For this long time fan it’s a great trip back through each episode from the start of season one, led by people who really know the show and have the best insights. So nice to have this...Read full review »
