With Chris off on a beach somewhere enjoying a well-deserved vacation, the partners and I had to find someone to run creative in his absence. Luckily, we had an excellent candidate in house: Chuck Klosterman. Chuck was kind enough to hop on the phone and spend an outrageous amount of time discussing Mad Men with me. We covered nearly everything about this polarizing sixth season, from the dreamy premiere to the surprising finale. With a few minutes left at the end, we switched off the television and turned on the stereo, chatting about new albums from Black Sabbath and Superchunk and wondering what it means when bands give their fans exactly what’s expected from them. Sterling Cooper may be in limbo, but the Hollywood Prospectus Podcast is doing just fine.
