Join TV Geek Out geeks Heather, Perry, and Dana for part one of an epic conversation about this monumental episode of Mad Men, and stay tuned for part two, coming soon! Check it out here.

Listen in as Perry, Dana, and Heather savor the triumphant return of Ryan, laugh at Jim’s continued inability to impress Charles Minor, and celebrate Jenna Fischer’s continued excellence. Check it all out here.
