Taken from this week’s edition of PJM Political, Ed Driscoll interviews Natasha Vargas-Cooper, the author of the new book from Harper-Collins, Mad Men Unbuttoned: A Romp Through 1960s America, and its swanky accompanying Weblog, “The Footnotes of Mad Men.” In this 24-minute long interview,  Vargas-Cooper explains what it is about the early 1960s that makes it seem like uncharted territory to today’s Gen-X crowd, who the real Don Draper was, and what makes TV’s hottest advertising men so lovable, as they break all of today’s politically correct taboos.
