If you’re a “Mad Men” fan, here’s a podcast for you. It’s an interview I did on KTRS/St. Louis with Natasha Vargas-Cooper, author of “Mad Men Unbuttoned,” which connects the fictional characters and atmosphere of the show to the real-life people and zeitgeist of the early 1960s.

We discussed the advertising execs that Don Draper is based on, the difference between emerging feminist Peggy Olson and stuck-in-the-50s Betty Draper (and the latter’s connection to Alfred Hitchcock), and the end of the Hat Era.
