Mad Men Chat finale – Now in podcast form!

The Mad Men chat finally comes to you in audio form!

That’s right: instead of a long chatlog, we here at Extended Play have finally – after something like a month of arguing and cajoling and maybe one bribe – gotten together and discussed Don Draper, Roger Sterling, et al.

Mark: And I think it’s double neat that Peggy seemed to have such a big role in it’s creation, although I’ll be the first to admit we all like to take credit for a little more then we actually did. After all, look at Roger. He says his job is to find people like Don; but Don basically found him, I’d argue.

Heather: I loved that was almost the whole premise of the episode, Don finding him. I love how Don was that excited geek standing there in front of Roger for his big break. Roger shunning him and then claiming in this episode that he found Don.
