Just reading the show’s name aloud in your head might conjure up some images, feelings, emotions or scene flashbacks of the show.
- The never-ending drinking or smoking?
- How Don pulled in that big account?
- How much of a jerk Pete Campbell is?
- Or…how about real, honest-to-goodness, social change?
Whatever it may be, Mad Men is hands down the most talked about, buzzed about, “water coolered” show when you work in advertising. We did a little internal poll, completely un-scientific of course, and barely anyone here watches ‘The Pitch.’ Sorry, AMC.
Now…back to Mad Men and social change for a second.
In a very social podcast we recorded last week myself (@mjoza), Andy Locke (@andrew_b_locke), Account Director, and Jamie Breazeale, VP of Media sat down to talk all things Mad Men – but with a twist.
This isn’t an episode or season recap, nor a character analysis, so there are no spoilers here to watch out for. We’re talking about the cultural impact and evolution of the American way of life from the 1960s to now and the differences in working in advertising today, vs. TV’s version of it.
Even if you’re not into Mad Men check out this podcast, where we talk about everything from the women’s movement and race riots in the mid-to-late 1960s to the types of social events that are running in parallel today – the occupy movement, gay marriage debate and the power of Twitter as a medium for breaking news and spreading thought and opinion.
I don’t want to give away much more – so turn up your speakers or plug in your ear buds. You’re in for a treat.
