Catch up on Mad Men

This is a quick way to get up to speed on where we last left the whole boozing, adulterous gang. The episode got me excited for the new episode now that I’m reminded of where we left off a year ago. The interview with the historian was good - it made me think - especially when she talked about the “youth bomb” that the protests of the last half of 1969. Looking forward to more.

Smart n Breezy

A delightful way to get caught up from week-to-week on the show, while hearing from super smart people who can address all the big issues from the show.

Lady Computers

Loved the podcast, but they got a bit lost talking about "lady computers". Ellen and her guest didn't realize that back in the days before computing machines people (both men and women) who did computing were called "computers" (like how people did baking were called 'bakers', or who did welding were called 'welders'). Only after we invented machines (initially called 'electronic computers; or 'digital computers') to do it did the meaning shift from the people to the devices. It had nothing to do with "dehumanizing" women in the 1960's workplace. Otherwise, a fascinating podcast. Looking forward to the rest of the season.
