Episode 49 - Steve, Dave and a Suitcase

I've said this before (when we talked about the Chrysanthemum and the Sword) but I really am looking forward to talking to Steve about this one.  (As I've also noted, I type these things up before we record).

We're at the halfway point of the series, and of the Podcast.

Duck has PTSD.

Don is really unravelling, but he still can 'spruce up'.

The whole episode is framed by the Ali Liston fight, so we talked some Ali.

Let's go somewhere darker.

All the good cooks stayed in Greece.


I love watching Don open up.

I don't really love watching Duck try to take a poo. 

Even the music has changed.

Episode 48 - Steve and Dave Go to the Waldorf and Hear Some Stories

I may not mention this in the podcast (I write these things before we record) but this might be my favourite run of episodes of the show.  Mid season 4 is amazing.

Hey, we get Don's origin story, as far as being hired goes.  Was he hired?  Or did he just weasel his way in assuming Roger forgot everything past his jar of olives?

Boy is Don falling off the edge in this one.  His drinking problem is now a real problem.

Danny's here!  He's the cure for the common minor character.

Roger has some great lines this week.  Especially 'I told him to be himself....'

Peggy calls Stan's bluff, I love it.

Pronouns are a big thing this week.

Don tells a woman, off camera, that his name is Dick.

Did you notice who was in the fur ad?

Oh and we see Duck again.

Episode 47 - Dave, Steve, Chrysanthemums, Swords, et al

I like this one because it’s a caper!  

Wow Roger is racist, but funny.  The war was obviously very tough on Rog.

There is probably a Roger at every firm.

Oh also happy birthday Steve.

We talk a lot about WW2 vets and PTSD, etc.

Ted Chauogh, is that how you spell it?  It's like he's trying to offer sheet Jesperi Kotkaniemi.

Is there anything cooler than Peggy on a bike?

Episode 46 - Steve and Dave are Rejected

 Lots of good stuff this week.

We see a bit more of Megan.

We meet Ida.

We meet Joyce.

Me meet Abe.

Peggy finds out who Malcolm X is.


Did you get pears?

Plus, we talk Alan Alda, Clint Eastwood and gender.

BONUS EPISODE - Boyington's B*st*rds Episode 1

No this isn't about Mad Men, but you know what?  We don't care, what did you pay for this anyway? We have a new project and we thoug...
