Computers, Apollo, and Mad Men

I’ve been found out: I love Mad Men. I also love radio. Earlier this week Ellen Horne, a radio producer at WYNC, gave me a chance to combine these two passions when she invited me to talk about the role of science and technology in Mad Men for a new podcast, The Mad Men Pre-Game Show. We had a blast talking about computers, the Apollo mission, dual-use technologies, feminism, and a bunch of other stuff. Most of it even made it past editing. 🙂

Here’s Episode 1, “Welcome Back to the 60s,” for fellow Mad Men fans. I come in around 8:00.
