What does the future hold? Where does Don Draper see himself going? Where does Mad Men see itself going? These questions and more are speculated upon in this week’s Smoke Gets in Your Ears as AJ, Kenn, and Joe discuss “The Forecast.” Glen stops by the Francis manse, Mathis is in dire need of a bar of soap, Don oozes, and the gang analyzes the average viewer’s response to the season. One thing’s for certain: this was a much, much better episode than last week’s. Plus, don’t miss another exciting installment of Hamm Watch!

Now that they’re in the home stretch, with Mad Men season 7B premiering on April 5, AJ, Kenn, and Joe have moved to discussing just one episode per podcast. This week, that episode is “The Runaways,” in which everyone is trying (to various degrees of success) to run from authority. There’s Don trying to rout his partners, Betty attempting to assert independence from Henry, and…Ginsberg v. computer? This episode goes to some dark, strange places, and your hosts are on hand to make sense of it all. Plus, don’t miss another exciting installment of Hamm Watch!

For the final podcast discussing multiple episodes of the show, AJ, Kenn, and Joe continue their analysis of Mad Men season 7 by discussing whether or not Don, or anyone on the show, has any hope of attaining redemption. Once you’ve bottomed out, can you climb your way back up? The gang tries to find answers by taking a look at “Field Trip,” wherein Betty drinks milk; and “The Monolith,” in which the other couch is full of farts.

Zou bisou bisou, here’s to another season of Mad Men. Seasons 5 gets off to a start with awkward burlesques, hot cleaning action, a trademark Peach Pussy Power Play, and much more. The episodes under discussion are the two-part premiere “A Little Kiss,” in which it’s Don’s party and he’ll grump if he wants to; and “Tea Leaves,” wherein Betty’s, uh, put on a few pounds.

It’s Christmastime in the city, which means 1963 is almost over. Other things at an end: the Draper marriage, Sterling Cooper, and Mad Men season 3. AJ, Kenn, and Joe discuss the finale, “Shut the Door. Have a Seat.,” in which our cast of characters, who have so often been at odds with one another this year, are forced to band together to start a new chapter of their lives. It’s a heist, Mad Men style; Don’s Eleven, if you will. Plus, don’t miss another exciting installment of Hamm Watch!

Where were you when JFK was shot? The characters on Mad Men find their everyday lives, their ad campaigns, and their affairs interrupted by those bullets in Dallas. AJ, Kenn, and Joe, who weren’t around on 11/22/63, sift through Sterling Cooper’s sense of loss and share reactions to their generation’s closest reference point: 9/11. The episodes under the lens this week are “The Color Blue,” wherein Betty consults an attorney; “The Gypsy and the Hobo,” in which Ms. Farrell spends a lot of time in the car; and “The Grown-Ups,” wherein Lee Harvey Oswald ruins Margaret’s wedding.
