95: Duchesse de Bourgogne & the Mad Men Finale
0:00 -:--
On Sunday, Matthew Weiner’s Mad Men aired its series finale on AMC and we called up Ryan to help us come to terms with it. We’re drinking one of our favourite sours, Duchesse de Bourgogne aka. The Duchess. Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t seen the finale yet, don’t listen to this episode. If you haven’t seen Mad Men at all, maybe you need to think about the choices that led you to this point in your life.
