    Great podcast guys, and looking forward to the end-of-series podcast coming up. I’d like to make a minor correction though… According to the sources I checked, this last half-season of Mad Men is actually 7 episodes long, so there are 6 episodes left. Mike, you mentioned a couple of times that there were 5 left.

      Sorry about that! I misread a promo that said “5 weeks UNTIL the series finale” to mean “5 weeks INCLUDING the series finale”. Either that or one of my eyes was temporarily shot out.

        No, I saw the same promo and thought the same thing.. I definitely believed that there were only 5 episodes left in the season for a moment

    Nice job, Jeremiah, in time-stamping the episode. I did a google search on the Nixon speech during the episode to come up with same month. I loved Ken’s b-slap of Roger and Pete.
