Episode 34 - Steve and Dave Walk Into an Advertising Agency

Before we begin, I'd like to say that both Steve and I know everything about you, you're a very impressive person.

I've been waiting to do this one since we started, there are a few that I think when I watch 'ooh  I can't wait to talk to Steve about this and record it and put it on the internet!'

Last week was about how constricting systems and roles are.  This week is about how the smallest thing, or the largest John Deere tractor, can change everything.

Roger has some killer lines this week 'it's like Iwo Jima out that' and 'just when he got it int the door'.

Roger is actually sort of sympathetic this week.  He admits to himself what his issue is, he doesn't like being mocked more than anything.

Lois, is, well, I imagine she won't be working at Sterling Coo any more.

I spotted more dramatic irony

Episode 33 - Things Get Foggy For Steve and Dave

I apparently note how people are horrible a lot when we record these.

The episode is all about prisons, both real and metaphorical.  It's also about systems and how they reinforce those real and metaphorical prisons.

It's time for the baby to come!

Looks like Ms. Farrell is making a move.

Pete runs into reality.

Kenny is doing well.

Duck's back, though not doing as well as before.  He's head hunting Peggy and Pete.  He sees them as a package deal, which, considering the past, is an interesting take.

The civil rights movement is now hitting the show, though tangentially.  That said, it's there.

How would you react to Lisa Simpson being your nurse?

Episode 32 - Dave and Steve Make the Arrangements

A transitional episode about transitions.

Lots of Catholic guilt at Peggy's Mom's place.

Gene lets Sally drive the car.  Ride Sally ride.

Hoho the jai alai guy makes his first appearance.  He's read a book by Oh Gli Veey.  The thing is, America is never going to understand that J, and, it's like Polish handball.

Gene tries to give Bobby a dead man's hat to quote Don.

I think Kitty now suspects Sal's secret.

Over there, over there, the Yanks are coming, three years late, but the Yanks are coming....

Episode 31 - Steve and Dave's Old Kentucky Home

This episode starts out with a content warning, as it should.

Blackface is horrible.

Jane is drunk.

Pete and Trudy do the Charleston.

Don meets the mysterious Connie.  They have a drink together.

I got a new computer, which has nothing to do with the podcast.

Joan plays accordion.

I'm Peggy Olson, and I want to smoke marijuana.

We all knew Kinsey was a poseur, now we're sure.
