||CleanScotch and Smokes - Episode 10||We discuss "The Other Woman," an episode both memorable and uncomfortable, impressive and icky. We examine the choices made by the principle female characters, and chastise Lane and Pete for their role in the developments.||8/28/2012||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanScotch and Smokes - Episode 9||Paul makes a return visit in "Christmas Waltz," pulling Harry into some strange and beguiling involvements.

||CleanScotch and Smokes - Episode 8||Betty has been absent for a while, but she returns with a vengeance in "Dark Shadows." We find characters staking out their territory and being envious of others--none more so than the former Mrs Draper.||5/30/2012||Free||View in iTunes|

||CleanScotch and Smokes - Episode 6||"At The Cod Fish Ball" was a strong return to the elements of Mad Men that we most enjoy: the familiar theme of disappointment, terrific side characters, and whipsmart dialogue.||5/14/2012||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanScotch and Smokes - Episode 5||In this time-shifting, turbulent episode, characters find themselves discovering things about themselves and others--and sometimes the truth is harsh.

||CleanScotch and Smokes - Episode 2||In "Tea Leaves" we see the return of Betty and her learn she's changed a bit since we last saw her in Season 4.
